Of Kings and Prophets didn’t quite find the audience it was looking for when it premiered the other day, but there are still several episodes to come. The network has released a new featurette on the series, a sneak peek of next week’s episode, and some clips from the premiere that aired two nights ago. Check ’em out below the jump.

Is Of Kings and Prophets going to be shown in 3D? Probably not, but a new TV spot almost makes you think it might, thanks to the people and objects that pop out of the image and into the black bars at the top and bottom of the frame — an effect that has been used in 3D movies like G-Force and Life of Pi to make it seem like the films are leaping right off the screen. Check out the new TV spot, along with some other videos and a new interview with executive producer Chris Brancato, below the jump.
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.
Watch: New teaser for Of Kings & Prophets, plus new photos and an “historical introduction” to the biblical series
With Of Kings and Prophets set to premiere just two months from now, the ABC network is stepping up its publicity campaign. In the last two weeks they have released a 15-second teaser, several new photos, and a press release that explains how the battles depicted in this series are “an origin story” for the conflicts that currently bedevil the Middle East. You can check all those things out below the jump.
Now here’s an interesting coincidence.
