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:

You can also see four publicity stills of David and Saul at the show’s IMDb page. Plus I have posted some behind-the-scenes pictures and videos here, here, here and here.
