Per The Hollywood Reporter, the Spartacus alum will co-star in the project, from executive producers Mark Burnett and Roma Downey (The Bible), about flawed guardian angels who intervene in the lives of those in crisis. The celestial agents attempt to restore people’s faith and, often, save their lives.

McIntyre — who will next be seen as the new Weather Wizard on The Flash — will play Michael Hunter, one of the angelic creatures who is described as a warrior and rebel.

Ready for more of today’s newsy nuggets? Well…

* NBC will launch Beyond A.D., its first-ever digital talk show companion series, on Sunday, April 12, just one week after the premiere of A.D. The Bible Continues on Sunday, April 5. E! News’ Jason Kennedy will host the discussion with fans, cast and special celebrity and musical guests before a live audience at Real Life Church in California.

* CSI is challenging The Doctor: CBS has declared March 4 as World CSI Day, during which it will try to break the Guinness World Record for “Largest Ever TV Drama Simulcast,” a title which currently belongs to Doctor Who‘s 50th anniversary special. As part of the effort, the planted spinoff episode of CSI: Cyber will air in more than 150 countries at 7 pm ET.

* WGN America’s Salem has its creepy new keyart for Season 2, premiering April 5, all sewn up. Check out two posters below, then see the rest at our sister site Deadline.

    “McIntyre will play Michael Hunter, one of the angelic creatures who is described as a warrior and rebel.” Well that works considering he played the ULTIMATE warrior/rebel — Spartacus. Liam has background in warrior and rebel acting ;)

    Somehow, I don’t think the Millennium Falcon is going to swoop in and rescue Janet Montgomery from that wooden “weather vane.”

    I’m all for exploiting Christians for ratings, NBC, but I’m worried for the network that has brought us comedies like 30Rock and Community and the change of identity that is taking place lately. We already have a conservative network for old folks, and that’s CBS.

    Will Michael Hunter go by Mike Hunt? I sure hope so.

    Since Witches of East End is no more I can’t wait for Salem.
