Plot Synopsis

Inspired by A.J. Jacobs' book, "The Year of Living Biblically," LIVING BIBLICALLY is a half-hour sitcom that centers on NYC film critic Chip Curry, a modern day man at a crossroads in his life, who decides to live strictly in accordance with the Bible after losing his best friend. His smart, pregnant wife, Leslie, while both skeptical and entertained by her husband's new passion, supports him completely. Knowing he'll need some practical advice, Chip forms a "God Squad" with Father Gene, a Catholic Priest who helps Chip translate the rules of the Bible to a modern world; and Father Gene's best friend, easygoing Rabbi Gil Abelman, who respects Chip's chutzpah and is glad to serve as a sounding board when they meet at their local bar. At Chip's newspaper, he finds support from his no-nonsense boss, Ms. Meadows, who knows Chip's self-penned story will sell newspapers, and his co-worker and friend, Vince, who is quick with a reality check and likes to wind Chip up for his own amusement. As he begins his sincere spiritual journey toward a more moral life with the help of his wife and friends, Chip wonders if he'll be able to take a page -- or every page -- out of the Good Book, and if the effect will be of Biblical proportions.
After a three-month break, LIVING BIBLICALLY returned with new episodes on Saturday, July 7, 2018 from 9-10pm ET/PT, as CBS debuted back-to-back new episodes:

"Never Let Loyalty Leave You" (9pm): Father Gene gets jealous when he finds out that Chip attended Vince's Baptist church to see another side of religion. Loretta Devine guest stars as Vince's Aunt Estelle.

"Submit to Thy Husband" (9:30pm): When Chip suggests that Leslie quit her job to stay home when the baby is born, she assumes it's his attempt to get her to submit to him based on a bible verse.
