ABC will air the premiere of its new series “Of Kings and Prophets” on Tuesday, March 8, 2016 at 10 p.m. The drama is based on the Biblical Books of Samuel. The series follows an ensemble of characters such as Saul and David, the successive Kings of Israel, their families, and their political rivals. The series is filmed in Cape Town, South Africa but depicted as the Kingdom of Israel.

The series proves to be action packed and entertaining. Many critics are referring to the series and the basis of an Old Testament as the world’s first soap opera. “Of Kings and Prophets” tells the story, but it also presses the envelope and sensationalizes the violence and sex that occurs.

If you’re not overly sensitive and have an open mind, then you should definitely tune in Tuesday, March 8th because you will appreciate the biblical retelling and the action packed scenes.
