A new trailer has been released for the series which covers the life of Jesus Christ, ‘The Chosen’. Financed via crowdfunding and are the #1 highest crowd-funded media project of all time – over $10 million from over 19,000 people.
Season 1 synopsis: A charismatic fisherman drowning in debt. A troubled woman wrestling with real demons. A gifted publican ostracized by his family and his people. A religious leader struggling with his beliefs. See Jesus through the eyes of those who met Him.
Season Two is about the beginning of the ministry of Jesus. Executive producer Derral Eves said viewers will find a connection to our challenges today.
“The hatred and racism and biases existed then as it does now. We are able to actually see Jesus do his work, and it’s beautiful because it’s really pointed to people, regardless of race, colour, or gender,”
The latest season was created at a motion picture studio in Goshen, Utah, owned by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
