Pilot Scoop: Anne Heche to Headline NBC's Spiritual Comedy Save Me

Anne Heche is taking her career in a very meta direction, signing on to produce and star in the spiritually tinged NBC comedy pilot Save Me.

As first reported by our sister site Deadline.com, the Men in Trees actress will play a woman who, after an accident, believes she is channeling God.

Heche, of course, famously recounted her history with mental illness — including having an alter ego named Celestia whom she believed was the reincarnation of God — in her 2003 memoir, Call Me Crazy.

Heche is coming off of a three-year run on HBO’s Hung.
