Watch: The first trailer for Of Kings and Prophets

Watch: The first trailer for Of Kings and Prophets May 12, 2015


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).

The trailer also includes a nod to David’s belief in “God’s grace and care”, so the series as a whole may balance the spiritual stuff with the more sensationalist stuff. Though it must be said, the prophet Samuel doesn’t come off as very graceful or caring here.

The series airs Sunday nights in the fall. Here is the trailer itself:

And here are a few screen captures featuring the main characters:
