Melissa McCarthy will star in the upcoming Netflix comedy series God’s Favorite Idiot, produced by her husband and regular colleague Ben Falcone, in June 2022. The Oscar nominee’s most recent appearance was in the Netflix film The Starling.
While that film was a dramedy, McCarthy’s next film, God’s Favorite Idiot, is a straight comedy. Falcone also appears in the series as Clark Thompson, a computer support specialist who becomes luminous after being struck by lightning.
His fiancée Amily (McCarthy) and the rest of his employees feel something supernatural is going on as a result of these bizarre events. Surprisingly, his pals are correct, and Clark discovers that he is a God’s messenger entrusted with averting the catastrophe.

Plot/Synopsis of God’s Favorite Idiot
The series’ summary on Netflix reads: Sweet Clark seemed to be the last person God would choose to combat evil. To spread the word and rescue the planet, he’ll need the support of his workplace crush and some excellent friends.
Clark Thompson (Ben Falcone), a mid-level Tech support employee, falls in love with his coworker Amily Luck (Melissa McCarthy) and takes her out on a date. Midway through the date, though, his entire body begins to shine like a light bulb. When he is hit by lightning, he unwittingly becomes the inadvertent messenger of God.
Someone takes a video of Clark illuminating up in the restaurant and shares it on social media, causing a media frenzy as people want to know what, when, and how he got his luminous powers.
Soon, Satan (a female with destructive abilities) will emerge, as will the four horsemen of the apocalypse, which can only signify an oncoming apocalypse is just around the horizon. Clark Thompson, the chosen beacon to god, is our only hope.
