Second Coming: Production on Amazon's 'Hand of God'

Publish date:

Liz Shannon Miller speaks to director Marc Forster and creator Ben Watkins about the Amazon series, Hand of Good. The series, which has received highly positive reviews, follows Judge Pernell Harris (Ron Perlman) who might be touched by God but might also be delusional. Which is it? Don't expect an answer to that question here.

On referencing other material when discussing the concept with Watkins, Forster says, "Actually, we never did that. We never spoke about that... I thought it was so different than anything I'd seen out there and I felt like the point was not to play it safe. Take the risks in regard to where the show goes, and the characters, and always push buttons to make people uncomfortable and I felt like there wasn't really anything out there."
