The Christian masterminds behind hit projects such as “The Chosen” and “Jesus Revolution” are at it again—this time to tell the story of King David. “House of David” portrays the humble and faithful shepherd boy, David, who is a seemingly unlikely choice to be king.

“As Saul’s fury grows, David navigates love, violence, and politics in the court of the very man he’s destined to replace,” according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Amazon Prime Video Will Stream ‘House of David’

Steamers will soon have access to the next biblically-based story—the story of King David. “House of David” begins with a retelling of “the once-mighty King Saul as he falls victim to his own pride,” the film synopsis reads. The project will be available to stream on Amazon Prime Video.

“A prophet prepares to overthrow him—anointing the outcast shepherd boy David as a second king,” the film’s summary continues. “As Saul’s fury grows, David navigates love, violence, and politics in the court of the man he’s destined to replace. Two kings. One Kingdom. The outcome is war.”

“House of David” directly involves Christians in Hollywood dedicated to wholesome, family-friendly entertainment. And many of the projects in their portfolios are faith-based. Jon Erwin (“Jesus Revolution”), Kelly Merryman Hoogstraten (Netflix), and Dallas Jenkins (“The Chosen”) are all involved.

Erwin created the idea of “House of David,” hoping to continue sharing biblical stories and truths via the big screen. With a growing number of fans wanting to support faith-based programming, Erwin is expecting “House of David” to be met with viral excitement.

A Project Like ‘House of David’ Takes a Village

Amazon MGM Studios recently announced that it’s working with The Wonder Project to bring “House of David” into homes around the world. The Wonder Project, formed by “Jesus Revolution” director Jon Erwin and former Netflix executive Kelly Merryman Hoogstraten, is aimed at creating “a trusted brand that serves the faith and values audience globally with movies and TV shows they didn’t know were possible.”

Erwin sees himself as the studio’s target audience. “I know there’s opportunity here,” he said, “because I’m part of this audience. My wife and I have four kids. There’s an audience that I serve with the content that we make. I need more of this in my home.”
