Plot Edit

The series chronicles the life of Miles Finer (Hall), an outspoken atheist and podcaster, who is sent a friend request on Facebook by an account named "God." This account suggests new friends to Miles, people in his hometown of New York City, who will require assistance. Initially skeptical, Miles decides to follow these suggestions to help people. During his second such request, he meets and befriends Cara (Beane), a struggling magazine writer. His first request was actually a doctor who lost a patient and was also on the verge of losing his girlfriend. Together with Cara and his hacker friend Rakesh (Sharma), Miles also tries to find out who is behind the "God" account. Miles' atheist views sometimes causes friction with his father (Morton), who is the pastor of an Episcopal church in Harlem.
