Is there such a thing as too much TV? Networks don't seem to think so.
With the 2018 Winter Olympics, and the special programming that comes with it, ending Sunday, networks are preparing for the return of fan favorite series, as well as introducing some brand new and creative offerings.
From comedies about religion, crime procedurals, spinoffs and dramedies, there is something for everyone to enjoy this spring.
Scroll through to see some of the new shows coming to network and cable television this spring.
Chip Curry (Jay R. Ferguson) is a modern day man at a crossroads in his life, who decides to live strictly in accordance with the Bible. His smart, pregnant wife, Leslie (Lindsey Kraft), while both skeptical and entertained by her husband’s new passion, supports him completely.
Knowing he’ll need some practical advice, Chip forms a “God Squad” with Father Gene (Ian Gomez), a Catholic Priest who helps Chip translate the rules of the Bible to a modern world; and Father Gene’s best friend, easygoing Rabbi Gil Abelman (David Krumholtz), who respects Chip’s chutzpah and is glad to serve as a sounding board when they meet at their local bar.
As he begins his sincere spiritual journey toward a more moral life with the help of his wife and friends, Chip wonders if he’ll be able to take a page – or every page – out of the Good Book, and if the effect will be of Biblical proportions.
