It’s been a bumpy road for Bible-themed TV shows lately.
The New Testament-themed A.D. The Bible Continues was cancelled after just one season last year, thanks to its falling ratings, and the Old Testament-themed Of Kings & Prophets had to scrap its original pilot episode and start over from scratch.
But now that second pilot is upon us, and the ABC network has released a new trailer in advance of the series’ premiere. In it, we find the young shepherd David caught between a jealous king, a predatory queen and a prophet of uncertain motives — and we get a taste of his looming confrontation with a certain Philistine giant.
