(SPOILER) Disgrace makes "Miracle". Tim Minear discusses ABC's "Miracle Man", divulging more information on the premise and the show's religious themes.

This sounds great. Go, Tim!
It reminds me of a short story I read once - I think it was about a fake psychic who suddenly gets a psychic vision. And there was a bell involved somehow.
Does this sound familiar to anyone?
I read it when I was very young, so it may not be the greatest piece of literature.
That was a very good article. A considered look at Tim's show, without any sense of the snark or condemnation that one might get given the subject matter of the show.

I just hope that the show gets picked-up and does well. I still mourn the loss of Nothing Sacred.
Yep, informative (too bad though, that in Tim's previous credits they do name Lois & Clark, but not Firefly or Angel :-p). This sounds like a premice that could really work, although - as an athe´st - I'm always kind of worried about a concept which includes a defined christian-style God (it's for that reason I could never quite get into 'Joan of Arcadia', for instance), although I have no problem with religious themes (I for instance absolutely loved 'Miracles') or religious characters (hellooo, Firefly ;)). But this being Tim Minear, there's no question I'm going to at least watch (and probably end up loving it as well).
As a Christian myself I look forward to the overall theme of this show. I too was disappointed that Firefly nor Angel were mentioned in Tim's credits. However, I didn't know he did work for the X-Files?!! I highly anticipate this new series. I love God and I love Tim's style.

Hey, at least they didn't list Buffy, which I often see.
Wasn't there a Steve Martin Film similar to this?

Isn't that always true? :-p
Leap of Faith. With, IIRC, Liam Neeson in the first role I'd seen him in trying an American accent (not a success, but he looked good). It's a good movie, I thought. (I think they're Broadway musicalizing it now.)

This show doesn't sound up my alley, but it's Tim, so I'd probably give it a shot.
