ABC has picked up to pilot “The Gospel of Kevin,” a new drama pilot from “Agent Carter” showunners Michele Fazekas and Tara Butters.
Described as a “light” one-hour potential series, “The Gospel of Kevin” follows a down-on-his-luck man who is tasked by God with a mission to save the world.
The order comes the day after ABC gave pilot orders to the comedies “Start Up” from star/director/executive producer Zach Braff and an untitled project about a rapper-turned-mayor from Daveed Diggs of “Hamilton.”
The network also has two other comedy pilots in the works: “Libby & Malcolm,” from Vijay Patel and “Black-ish” creator Kenya Barris, and “Raised by Wolves,” from “One Mississippi” and “United States of Tara” creator Diablo Cody.
On the drama side, the network has the time travel refugee drama “The Crossing,” the magician crime drama “Deception,” an untitled Shondaland legal drama and a Reba McEntire-led dramedy from “Desperate Housewives” and “Devious Maids” creator Marc Cherry.
