Produced by Ben Falcone and Melissa McCarthy, God’s Favorite Idiot is a workplace comedy about a mid-level Tech support employee Clark Thompson (Falcone) who finds love with co-worker Amily Luck (McCarthy) at exactly the same time he becomes the unwitting messenger of God.

The series will be filmed in New South Wales with the production expected to employ more than 300 talented Australian cast and crew, bring significant expenditure into regional areas and showcase the State’s beautiful Northern Rivers area.

God’s Favorite Idiot will continue the pipeline of productions being made in NSW including Nine Perfect StrangersPieces of HerShang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, and Thor: Love and Thunder.

“To have the opportunity to safely film our show in a beautiful country like Australia is a dream come true. We love this country, and the talented people who live and work here.  A special thank you to Chris, Luke, and Liam Hemsworth for volunteering to carry us to and from work with their wonderful powerful arms.”
