Melissa McCarthy and Ben Falcone are teaming up for a new Netflix comedy series!

The married duo will be starring in and executive producing the workplace comedy God’s Favorite Idiot, which has already been given a 16-episode order, Deadline reports. Ben also created the series.

Here’s the show’s synopsis: “God’s Favorite Idiot follows Clark Thompson (Falcone), a midlevel tech-support employee who finds love with co-worker Amily Luck (McCarthy) at exactly the same time he becomes the unwitting messenger of God. Also, there’s rollerskating, a lake of fire and an impending apocalypse.”

This will be Melissa and Ben‘s sixth project together. They executive produced and appeared in the comedy series Nobodies along with Bridesmaids, Tammy, The Boss, and Life of the Party.

If you missed it, Melissa recently revealed that Ben has a big crush on this singer!
