It’s finally October, and JoAnna’s new show “Kevin (Probably) Saves the World” premieres tomorrow night! For that occasion, I have updated our gallery with additional promotional images, and high quality episode stills from the first 3 episodes. We also have some new information on the episodes, and I’ve attached the official press release for each below.

Make sure to tune in tomorrow night to catch the premiere (I’ll attempt to live tweet the episode, make sure to follow our twitter account), and stay tuned here at JoAnna Garcia Online for screen captures and reviews on Wednesday.




Episode 1 “Pilot” (Air date Oct 03): Kevin, who is on a dangerous path of despair, returns to his childhood home in Texas to crash with his widowed twin sister, Amy (JoAnna Garcia Swisher), and teenaged niece, Reese (Chloe East). It is a strained homecoming – he and his family have grown apart over the years – and Kevin has no real hope that anything will get better. But a series of fantastic events, including a meteorite landing near the house, lead Kevin to meet an unlikely celestial guide, Yvette (Kimberly Hébert Gregory). Yvette delivers incredible news to Kevin: in every generation there are 36 righteous souls on Earth whose mere existence protects the world. Kevin, she tells him, is the last of the 36 righteous. Humanity has been thrown into crisis. Without the 36, the world will begin to lose the one thing that allows us to persevere through the ups and downs of life: hope.

Now Kevin has a mission, whether he wants it or not: “power up” his soul through acts of kindness and selflessness, so that he can eventually find and anoint a new generation of righteous. Yvette will serve as his protector and teacher, a drill sergeant with divine authority, even if she’s the least angel-like person he’s ever met.

Episode 2 “Listen Up” (Air date Oct 10): Yvette attempts to guide Kevin in his mission to help others, but when he tries to “help” a local brewer, Kevin’s good intentions go horribly awry. Amy struggles to understand Kevin’s strange behavior while still mourning the loss of her husband. Meanwhile, Kevin rekindles an old flame with unexpected consequences.

Episode 3 “Sweet Little Lies” (Air date Oct 17): On his quest to become a better person, Kevin helps a young couple plan their wedding. In doing so, however, he sees the consequences of lies – both his own and the couple’s. Meanwhile, Yvette attempts to organize the other celestial beings, and Reese witnesses her uncle’s strange new talents first-hand.

JASON RITTER STARS AS KEVIN FINN IN ABC’S NEW UNIQUE DRAMA ‘KEVIN (PROBABLY) SAVES THE WORLD,’ PREMIERING TUESDAY, OCTOBER 3

JoAnna Garcia Swisher, Kimberly Hébert Gregory and Chloe East Join Ritter as He Attempts to Find the One Thing that Allows Mankind to Persevere: Hope

Kevin Finn (Jason Ritter) is not a good person. He’s not terrible, but he’s selfish and clueless, and values material wealth and status over all else. And he’s beginning to realize that those things aren’t making him happy – in fact, he’s fairly miserable. Just when things seem to be at their worst, he finds himself tasked with an unbelievable mission: saving the world. “Kevin (Probably) Saves the World,” a unique one-hour drama filled with hope, heart and a good dose of irreverent humor, premieres TUESDAY, OCTOBER 3 (10:00-11:00 p.m. EDT), on The ABC Television Network.

In the series premiere, “Pilot,” Kevin, who is on a dangerous path of despair, returns to his childhood home in Texas to crash with his widowed twin sister, Amy (JoAnna Garcia Swisher), and teenaged niece, Reese (Chloe East). It is a strained homecoming – he and his family have grown apart over the years – and Kevin has no real hope that anything will get better. But a series of fantastic events, including a meteorite landing near the house, lead Kevin to meet an unlikely celestial guide, Yvette (Kimberly Hébert Gregory). Yvette delivers incredible news to Kevin: in every generation there are 36 righteous souls on Earth whose mere existence protects the world. Kevin, she tells him, is the last of the 36 righteous. Humanity has been thrown into crisis. Without the 36, the world will begin to lose the one thing that allows us to persevere through the ups and downs of life: hope.

Now Kevin has a mission, whether he wants it or not: “power up” his soul through acts of kindness and selflessness, so that he can eventually find and anoint a new generation of righteous. Yvette will serve as his protector and teacher, a drill sergeant with divine authority, even if she’s the least angel-like person he’s ever met.

“Kevin (Probably) Saves the World” stars Jason Ritter (“Parenthood”) as Kevin Finn, JoAnna Garcia Swisher (“Once Upon a Time,” “The Astronaut Wives Club”) as Amy Cabrera, Kimberly Hébert Gregory (HBO’s “Vice Principals”) as Yvette, Chloe East as Reese Cabrera, J. August Richards as Deputy Nate Purcell, Dustin Ybarra as Tyler Medina and India de Beaufort as Kristin Allen.

Guest starring in “Pilot” is Barbara Eve Harris as Lt. Colonel O’Donnell.

“Kevin (Probably) Saves the World” is from ABC Studios. The series is created and executive produced by Michele Fazekas & Tara Butters (“Mavel’s Agent Carter,” “Resurrection,” “Reaper”). In addition, the series is executive produced by Chris Dingess and Craig DiGregorio, while Paul McGuigan was an executive producer and director on the pilot.

Earlier this week, JoAnna was interviewed by Variety about her upcoming television series ‘Kevin (Probably) Saves The World’, the charity she runs with her husband and how she got involved in acting. You can find her interview below, and we’ve added a beautiful new portrait to our gallery! Hopefully we’ll have more additions from this shoot soon.

Variety – JoAnna Garcia Swisher has been acting since she was a teen, breaking through as Reba McEntire’s daughter on the CW sitcom “Reba.” The actress returns to the small screen in ABC’s “Kevin (Probably) Saves the World” in October. She also runs the Swisher Family Foundation with her husband, former pro baseball player Nick Swisher, which is devoted to helping needy children.

What intrigued you about “Kevin (Probably) Saves the World”?

There are so many incredible themes in the show. It’s a lot about reconnecting with your family and forgiveness and spirituality. It felt very different, and something that I hadn’t really done before.

How did you get involved in acting?

I had to have an extracurricular activity when I was a kid. I played tennis pretty seriously, and when I burned out on that around 10, my parents were like, “You gotta choose something different.” There was a little theater company in our area in Tampa. I auditioned for their first play, and I got bitten by the bug. I was able to start working on a professional level almost instantly. It really felt like I was doing what I was meant to be doing.

What inspired you to start the Swisher Family Foundation with your husband?

One of the things that attracted me to him was that he has such a philanthropic heart. We feel passionately about families and children and giving back and giving a leg up.

Have you learned anything surprising from running a charity?

Things can get crazy at times, considering what my husband and I do for a living; we’re relocating and moving all over the place, and then add two children to the mix. The Swisher Family Foundation and our commitment to it has really slowed things down for us, made us take a deep breath and just say, “Hey, look around and know that we are very blessed. We should try to bring that sense of blessings to other people who may be less fortunate.” I wouldn’t say anything’s surprised me. I would say it’s incredibly fulfilling.

What would you be doing if acting hadn’t worked out?

Interior design. I spend a great deal of time working on my houses and helping friends with their houses, and I’m constantly on design blogs. It’s a great love of mine. I would probably be doing that full-time.
