Netflix is adding a new original show being created by Roma Downey and Mark Burnett to its catalog. The new show called Messiah, will look at the life of Jesus in modern times.
The description of the show says it chronicles the modern world’s reaction to a man who first appears in the Middle East creating a groundswell of followers around him claiming he is the Messiah. Is he sent from God or is he a dangerous fraud bent on dismantling the world’s geopolitical order? The story unfolds from multiple points of view, including a young CIA agent, an Israeli Shin Bet officer, a Latino preacher and his Texan daughter, a Palestinian refugee and the media, among others.
This sounds like it has potential.
