Cristela Alonzo The Gospel of Kevin

Cristela Alonzo Joins Jason Ritter-Starring ABC Pilot The Gospel of Kevin

Cristela Alonzo is returning to ABC to help Jason Ritter save humanity.

The actress/stand-up comedian will costar in The Gospel of Kevin, the network’s upcoming dramedy pilot written by Agent Carter executive producers Michele Fazekas and Tara Butters, TVLine has learned.

The potential series is a light one-hour dramedy about Kevin (Ritter), a down-on-his-luck man who is tasked by God with a mission to save the world. Alonzo will play Yvette, a tough-talking “warrior for God” who explains to Kevin that he’s been “tasked with a sacred mission.

Alonzo co-created and headlined the short-lived ABC sitcom Cristela, which went off the air in 2015 after just one season. Her other TV credits include Sons of Anarchy and General Hospital, and her new stand-up special Cristela Alonzo: Lower Classy debuted on Netflix in January.

    I loved Crustela. Thought it was cute and funny. I’m in for this. (TBH, you had me at Jason Ritter!!)

  3. E. D. Boddy says:

    So they’re not anticipating any confusion between their “Gospel of Kevin” and the existing “Kevin Can Wait”?

  4. Elvia says:

    SO Excited for Cristela! Well deserved Beautiful Funny Gal! Besitos! :D

  5. Phil says:

    Shout-out for “Lower Classy.” Laughed SO HARD at that over the weekend. Glad to see Cristela will be back on TV!

    May have been said in a previous article, but isn’t this just his former series Joan of Arcadia again – repackaged? That being said I like him and I really enjoy Cristela. Her Netflix stand-up special was a hoot.
