A single-camera fantasy comedy, Angel from Hell follows Amy (Jane Lynch), a colorful and brassy individual who barges into the life of an organized and seemingly perfect young woman, Allison Fuller (Maggie Lawson), claiming to be her “guardian angel”. Allison is a workaholic dermatologist who runs a successful Beverly Hills practice with her widowed father, Marv (Kevin Pollak). In the meantime, she tries to cope with the death of her mother and a going-nowhere romance.
Allison is sure that Amy is just a disturbingly cheerful, heavy-drinking and outspoken nut, until every one of her unbelievable predictions comes true. It seems that this New Age therapist, dressed like a homeless person, has been watching Allison since childhood and knows all her secrets. Cautioned by Amy not tell anyone about her, Allison can’t discuss this crazy experience with her father and business partner, or her younger brother, Brad (Kyle Bornheimer), a sales representative who lives in a guest room above her garage.
Although the Guardian Angel Code says she’s supposed to exercise her influence subtly, Amy claims that Allison’s life is just too much of mess for that. Outing herself as a celestial being, Amy shows up everywhere, every day, at all hours and offers to provide Allison with helpful guidance that nudges her in the right direction in life and helps her achieve true happiness. Moreover, it’s her final chance to prove herself as an angel. Eventually, the young doctor agrees to this unlikely relationship because maybe a weird friend is exactly what she needs… and what if Amy really is her “guardian angel”?
