Details on "The Chosen"
The Chosen—the very first multi-season series about the life of Jesus, is directed by Dallas Jenkins, and is on the way to becoming the most-funded entertainment project in crowdfunding history. The project is now positioned to unseat Mystery Science Theater 3000 as the #1 crowdfunded entertainment property.
In late 2017, The Chosen Productions, partnering with distributor VidAngel, released a concept pilot in social media to gauge potential public interest in The Chosen.
The pilot has been viewed 15 million times in 10 languages around the world. Directed by Dallas Jenkins (WHAT IF?, MIDNIGHT CLEAR, THE RESURRECTION OF GAVIN STONE), the series seeks to raise $13MM in total investment to create Season One.
