Chicagoan Francesca Ling, Guest-Star of CBS dramedy God Friended Me

Recently, the media scene has been shaken-up by scandals around race, religion, and representation. The new CBS “dramedy” called God Friended Me turns many classic tropes on their head. The story follows Miles (Brandon Michael Hall), an atheist podcaster who receives a Facebook friend request from God. Through a series of serendipitous encounters, Miles begins to question his convictions. Chicago Actress, Francesca Ling, guest stars on the show. She recently spoke with Worldview’s Julian Hayda. CBS just extended God Friended Me for a full season.
