The first trailer for Of Kings and Prophets — the ABC series about Saul, David and Samuel — is here, and it’s got some of the expected biblical violence (Goliath, Amalekites, etc.) as well as some of the rumoured biblical sex (Saul has a concubine, while David seems to be having an affair with Saul’s wife).

It’s a wrap for Of Kings and Prophets!
The pilot for the proposed series about Saul, David and Samuel finished shooting in South Africa a couple days ago, so now seemed like a good time to round up the last batch of Instagrams posted by the show’s cast and crew.

Ray Winstone is going back to the Bible. The British actor — who played Quintus Arrius in the TV version of Ben-Hur and the villainous Tubal-Cain in Darren Aronofsky’s Noah — has signed on to play Saul, the paranoid first king of Israel, in Of Kings and Prophets, the ABC pilot that is being written by Adam Cooper and Bill Collage, the original writers of Ridley Scott’s Exodus: Gods and Kings.
