Set in a small Orlando-adjacent town in 1992, this dark comedy follows Krystal Stubbs, a minimum-wage water park employee who lies, schemes and cons her way up the ranks of Founders American Merchandise (FAM) - the cultish, flag-waving, multi-billion-dollar pyramid scheme that drove her family to ruin in the first place. Determined to make a better life for herself, Krystal dives deep into FAM, until her business begins to affect those closest to her.
Showtime Cancels 'On Becoming A God In Central Florida'
It is being reported that On Becoming a God in Central Florida has been cancelled by Showtime after one season. The move makes the dark comedy the latest victim in the growing trend of renewals being reversed due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic that has affected all television shows in some manner.
The hour-long series premiered in the Fall of 2019, receiving an overall-positive critical reception that earned it a quick renewal just a month later. Unfortunately the coronavirus hit just when production on Season 2 would be kicking off, and the cable network ultimately decided to scrap the series, as it could not find a way to reunite the cast and crew despite their best efforts.
