Miles Finer (Brandon Micheal Hall) is intelligent, hopeful and optimistic, but he doesn’t believe in God. This puts him at odds with his father, Reverend Arthur Finer (Joe Morton). Miles feels he’s found his purpose in life hosting a podcast where he’s free to speak his mind, but that changes when he receives the ultimate friend request. After repeated pokes by “God,” Miles connects with journalist Cara Bloom (Violett Beane). Brought together by the God Account, the two investigate “God’s” friend suggestions and inadvertently help others. Joining them on their journey are Miles’s sister, Ali (Javicia Leslie), a doctoral psych student /bartender, and his best friend, Rakesh Singh (Suraj Sharma), a sometime hacker who joins the search for the source behind the enigmatic account. Miles is determined to get to the bottom of what he believes is an elaborate hoax, but in the meantime, plays along, changing his life forever.
