The Recipient is basically: “Touched By An Angel” meets “The X Files” in a “CSI” skin”

The Main Character – ‘BEAR’ McQuade, is always on a mission to give a divinely inspired message of hope to whoever the next “Recipient” might be; Sometimes, it is the last person he ever thought would be chosen.

The excitement occurs when he finds himself in trouble with the law, police, the press, the mafia, CIA, FBI, and even his suspicious wife, while he innocently goes about seeking Heavenly guidance and protection.

What is The Recipient TV Pilot About?

Barry Ahlsten & Jeff Saxton

Official Movie LogLine:

“Barry ‘BEAR’ McQuade is a mild-mannered blue collar “everyman” who believes he has been divinely selected to bring heavenly messages to various people in need. But suddenly his world is turned upside down when he is mistakenly identified by the CIA as part of an underground international espionage racket.

McQuade is forced to clear his name by undergoing a series of psychological tests at the request of his reticent wife Sarah McQuade, while secretly cooperating with the CIA in a variety of secret missions that ironically… coincide with his heavenly assignments.”
