What, asks a new TV series, if all the world's problems were caused by office politics in God's corporate headquarters? Filmmaker Francis Stokes created a worldwide viral video when his short web series God, Inc. was featured on YouTube's main page.
His deceptively sly concept tackles earthbound social issues as handled by the bored, petty, and overworked pencil pushers in the offices of Heaven.
ogether with writer Stephen Falk (Not New…But Recommended), Stokes will expand this series into a half-hour, single-camera comedy, exploring such dilemmas as 'who stole God's lunch?' and whether they should hire a consultant to rebrand God's image.
Additionally, the US SciFi Channel has signed Stokes to develop an original scripted project, using his voice to create a new take on the one-hour time travel drama.
