The supernatural/spiritual drama, similar in content to Downey's earlier show, Touched by an Angel, Unveiled is about a group of flawed guardian angels who intervene in the lives of people here on earth. The original pilot was created but did not make the cut for NBC's 2015 fall season. However, Deadline reported today that NBC likes the concept of the show but will be re-tweaked with a new writer. The executive producers has also locked in three of the actors from the first pilot including Stephan James who recently been seen in the theatrical movies, Selma and When the Game Stands Tall. The other two actors are Will Kemp and Mouzam Makkar.

Ironically, this is not the only angel-themed story being pitched to networks. Currently, the CW's The Messengers will finish up their freshman and final season of biblically-themed but hugely flawed end-times series in a week or two and CBS has announced that a the new comedy, Angel from Hell, starring Jane Lynch, would premiere this fall. NBC has not decided if it will continue A.D: The The Bible Continues for a second season just yet.
