Ben Falcone and Melissa McCarthy Battle Satan in God's Favorite Idiot Trailer

The real-life couple saves the world in Netflix's apocalyptic comedy.
  • Netflix released the official trailer for God's Favorite Idiot, a new comedy series starring Ben Falcone and Melissa McCarthy, Friday afternoon. The comedy stars Falcone as Clark Thompson, a mid-level tech support employee who loves cats and has a crush on his co-worker Amily (McCarthy). After being struck by lightning, Clark learns he's become the unwitting messenger of God, and with the help of Amily and the rest of his co-workers, he sets out to save humanity from Satan (Leslie Bibb) and the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse.

    In addition to its main trio, God's Favorite Idiot features a reunion between McCarthy and her Gilmore Girls co-star, Yanic Truesdale, who plays one of God's associates.

    All eight episodes of God's Favorite Idiot hit Netflix on June 15.
