God Friended Me: What Other Shows Have The Creators Worked On?

by Conor O'Brien

God Friended Me ended its run on CBS in late April 2020 with a two-part series finale that brought Miles Finer’s journey to a close.

However, the hit uplifting comedy-drama is far from the first hit series that co-creators Steven Lilien and Bryan Wynbrandt have been involved in.

Spanning multiple networks and genres, these two men have helped write multiple beloved classics.

Read on to find out what other shows were partly scribed by Lilien and Wynbrandt.

‘Kyle XY’ (2006-2009)

Starring Matt Dallas as the title character, this science-fiction family drama focused on an initially amnesiac and highly gifted boy with unknown origins.

Marguerite MacIntyre (The Vampire Diaries) and Jean-Luc Bilodeau (Baby Daddy) were among the ensemble co-stars in the series.

Lilien and Wynbrandt wrote six episodes across all three seasons.

‘Alcatraz’ (2012)

Lilien and Wynbrandt created this science-fiction thriller which aired for one season on FOX in 2012.

Alcatraz followed a group of prisoners from the eponymous prison, who had disappeared in 1963 and were resurfacing in the present day, completely unaged.

The lead roles were played by Sarah Jones and Sam Neill. Lost’s Jorge Garcia (Hurley) and future God Friended Me guest star Parminder Nagra (Pria Amar) were also part of the regular cast.

‘Hawaii Five-0’ (2010-2020)

Lilien and Wynbrandt were involved in the writing/story of fourteen episodes of this hit action-packed police procedural between 2013 and 2016.

The main cast on Hawaii Five-0 during their time on the show included Alex O’Laughlin (The Back-up Plan), Scott Caan (Entourage), Daniel Dae Kim (Lost), Grace Park (A Million Little Things) and Masi Oka (Heroes).

‘Gotham’ (2014 – 2019)

This Jim Gordon-led Batman prequel series ran for five seasons on FOX from 2014 to 2019.

Lilien and Wynbrandt served as co-executive producers between 2016 and 2018. This was their last writing job before God Friended Me.

The series starred, among others, Ben McKenzie, Donal Logue, David Mazouz, Sean Pertwee, Morena Baccarin, Erin Richards and Robin Lord Taylor.

These are all the major jobs that this pair had before creating God Friended Me. Now the question remains: what will Lilien and Wynbrandt do next?
