Dallas Jenkins New Series Based on Scripture

The Chosen TV is produced and directed by Dallas Jenkins the first ever multi-season series about the life of Christ. I am excited about The Chosen series by Dallas Jenkins, also known for films like The Resurrection of Gavin Stone and What If.  After watching the first episode I wanted to see more. There is evidence that Christian based films are proving to be in demand.  Therefore, what if you could watch The Chosen? A true reality show about those who come to know Jesus, instead of a secular reality show.  Don’t get all deep on me. Most Bible based projects are story lined by true stories, the scriptures and simulated Christian drama. The Chosen explores each biblical character being developed prior to their meeting with Jesus.
