Will Ferrell's production company has successfully pitched a pilot to FOX called "Church of Steve," in which a blue-collar New Jersey man discovers he's a descendant of Jesus.
[Writer Chris] Henchy said his "Steve" won't have any religious superpowers, nor will the pilot script confirm that Steve is, in fact, actually a blood relative of Jesus.
Instead, the pilot sets up a scenario in which a biblical scholar from Italy comes to the conclusion that Steve is a descendant of Christ. Except for a few of his close friends and relatives, Steve -- who'll be unmarried and without children -- keeps the news of his lineage a secret. [Link]
