The streaming network Netflix has ordered a 10 part series called Messiah from Mark Burnett and Roma Downey.
The series, which is set to premiere in 2019, focuses on what happens to the world after a man claims to be the Messiah. Series creator is Michael Petroni.
Cindy Holland, VP of original content for Netflix.“Messiah promises to be a fascinating series for viewers of every faith, and a thrilling drama filled with multi-layered characters set on a global stage.”
Meanwhile Petroni remarked, “Messiah will have every viewer asking the question ‘is he or isn’t he?’ How you answer that question may reveal more about you than it does about the show. Messiah challenges us to examine what we believe and why.”
