Jason Ritter The Gospel of Kevin

Jason Ritter to Star in ABC Dramedy Pilot The Gospel of Kevin

No pressure Jason Ritter, but you’ve got the whole world in your hands.

The Parenthood vet is set to play the title role in The Gospel of Kevin, an hour-long comedic drama pilot about a down-on-his-luck man who is tasked by God with a mission to save the world.

Agent Carter duo Michele Fazekas and Tara Butters penned the pilot script and will serve as EPs.

Additional TV credits for Ritter include stints on HBO’s Girls, Amazon’s Goliath and Comedy Central’s Drunk History. He most recently made a cameo in Netflix’s Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life.

    [Insert inevitable Joan of Arcadia references here]

    Coming to the network where his father and two roommates were big in the 1980’s.

    Love love love him. Hope it gets picked up!

    Sounds similar to ABC once Eli Stone

  5. ncmacasl says:

    Doesn’t he have a sister named Joan, and didn’t they used to live in Arcadia?!?!? And wasn’t “God” played by a different actor each week?!?!

  6. I’m hoping his character’s name is Reverend Fenwick–and homage to his father’s role on “The Waltons.”

    I love Jason, but I don’t know about this particular project. It sounds too similar to some others that have failed.

    Happy Jason is returning to TV! He’s such a great actor.
