It’s a big week for Jesus programs, with the premieres of The Chosen and Jesus Calling: Stories of Faith.
One of The Savvy Screener’s most popular stories last year was about being able to stream – for free — the first four episodes of The Chosen, planned as the first multi-season TV series depicting Jesus’ life story.
Starting today, October 5, the entire first season of eight episodes streams free over BYUtv.org and BYUtv apps.
The Chosen is touted as the top crowdfunded media project in history, having raised more than $10 million from 16,000 investors. The cast includes Jonathan Roumie as Jesus and The Brink’s Erick Avari as Nicodemus.
Jesus Calling: Stories of Faith
Based on the devotional book Jesus Calling by Sarah Young, the weekly half-hour series (Tuesdays at 8:30 pm ET, repeating Sundays at 2 pm ET) will focus on “stories of success, loss, heartbreak, and redemption.” Actress/singer Kristin Chenoweth will guest on the debut episode, followed by such celebs as country singer Hunter Hayes (October 13), disco legend Gloria Gaynor (November 10), CBS sportscaster James Brown (November 24) and actress/producer Rita Wilson (December 8). The show is hosted by singer/songwriter Lauren Alaina.
