If VEEP made sexy time with Shameless at the Grand Ole Opry, their love-child would be Marmousch: The Other Second Coming.

Co-created by Jake Jensen and Kike Adedeji, Marmouscsh is set in Nashville, Tennessee, in the world of televangelists and country music. It is an irreverent and searing look at fame, religion, and the price always paid for unbridled ambition. 

When the show opens, narcissistic, take-no-prisoners Christian Contemporary Network (CCN) televangelist Evangeline Marmousch, mid-50s, is furious. She is about to have her Sunday morning TV show, God Talk, cancelled. On the show that morning, young and hunky retired baseball player and uber-pious “born-again virgin” Beau Davenport, 36, makes a surprise appearance as the Christian Celebrity Guest. The public loves the two of them together! They are the new faces of CCN!

Hitching his wagon to Evangeline is the perfect solution for Beau, if only he didn’t have to work with her, “That woman is the devil in a skirt!” The feeling is mutual. Evangeline screams at him, “You ain’t nothing but an over-pious p_ _ _ _!” As our two characters collide on the slippy slidey road to evangelical crossover fame and fortune, they discover much about each other. He’s a secret sex-addict and she is married to a closeted State Senator who she met way back when she was an exotic dancer. They are both desperate to keep their secrets secret or the house of cards will topple. Evangelujah!
