Project Description:

"Immaculate" is a half-hour comedy series following the story of an underachiever, Melissa, who might do something incredible if she got her sh** together. When a real flesh and feathers Angel appears in her house and tells her she is pregnant with the offspring of God, Melissa gets a burning bush lit under her butt to shape up and prepare for the next Savior. However, Melissa's pregnancy soon becomes threatened by a niche religious group. Is Melissa capable of cleaning up her life in time to be the next Holy Mother? Will she outwit the only Jersey-based snake-handling cult? And most of all...does she even wanna be a mom?

A mixture of “Saved” meets “Clerks”, this mini-series follows a nine episode structure which follows the nine months of pregnancy. Melissa’s two GameStop coworkers, a Sally Beauty salon girl, and Melissa’s old flame, make up the band of misfit toys who will be the extended family for the new Christ child. Like, the age-old story, the Messiah is being born to the most unlikely of people.
