“86% of VidAngel’s users say their faith is extremely important to them. This vastly underserved audience deserves more content they want to see, and that’s why we selected The Chosen as our first major scripted series. We believe passionately that the story of Jesus is must-watch, binge worthy TV for untold millions, and we also believe that thousands will catch this vision and enthusiastically support this project,” said Neal Harmon, CEO of VidAngel “We have already changed the way families view their content at home, now VidAngel Studios is going to change the way that content is created, and distributed. We are thrilled to be working with Dallas Jenkins and his team, and have already been stunned by the overwhelming reaction to his concept pilot, ‘The Shepherd’.”

“The way projects are made, distributed, and seen is changing rapidly, and VidAngel has proven they’re ahead of the game with all this. Because my primary goal is for people to actually watch what I make, I’m really excited to work with them on the most important project of my life,” said Dallas Jenkins, Director of The Chosen. “But more importantly, I love how this model allows us to partner with viewers from the beginning, and I’m eager to help impact the way entertainment is created.”

The Chosen Productions, using the resources of distributor VidAngel, has launched a campaign to gauge the potential public interest in investing in The Chosen. Directed by Dallas Jenkins, the series is spearheaded by Executive Producer Matthew Faraci, known for Dove Channel’s Frankly Faraci and Heavenquest: A Pilgrim’s Progress, and Executive Producer Derral Eves, a leading social media expert who has helped generate 24 billion views of content on YouTube and is founder of VidSummit, the leading professional conference for social media creators.
