Morgan Freeman is looking for the man upstairs. The prolific actor—who played the God in comedies Bruce Almighty and Evan Almighty—is hosting a new TV series that explores how different cultures have been shaped by faith.
The Story of God will follow Freeman as he visits sites of religious significance around the world, from the Vatican and ancient Mayan temples, to the jungles of Guatemala and even Joel Osteen’s Lakewood Church in Houston.
“For me, this is a personal and enduring quest to understand the divine,” Freeman explained, “and I am humbled by the opportunity to take viewers along on this incredible journey.”
The show will air next year on Nat Geo.
