Amazon gets into the Bible genre with the series Kingdoms September 19, 2014

rodericktaylor-bruceataylorIs the world ready for two TV shows based on the Book of Acts? Mark Burnett and Roma Downey have been developing A.D., their follow-up to The Bible, for over a year now, though there has been very little news about it since it was first announced. And now it may have competition. Deadline reports that Ian Sander and Kim Moses, producers of shows like Reckless and Ghost Whisperer, have set up a drama series at Amazon called Kingdoms, which will tell “the biblical saga of the Apostles – 12 ordinary men who clashed with the power and wealth of three kingdoms to change the world forever.” The show will be written by Roderick Taylor and his son Bruce, who have a bit of experience with “faith-based” material, as they wrote the script for The Surrogate, a thriller based on a book by Christian novelist Kathryn Mackel that Christian filmmaker Ralph Winter was going to produce a few years ago. Their best-known produced screenplay is probably The Brave One, a Death Wish-style vigilante flick starring Jodie Foster.
