About The Chosen

Dallas Jenkins directs children on the set of the Chosen

I’m Dallas Jenkins, director of The Chosen. If you haven’t watched it yet, please take a look first and then come back and read this.

I've got some really cool news for you. My original idea in making The Chosen was simply to create a short film about the birth of Christ in a fresh way. As I shared it with friends, ministry leaders, and entertainment professionals, I kept getting the same response: "I want more."

As a result, we decided to make an entire TV show about the life of Christ through the eyes of those who encountered him called The Chosen. And when I say "we," I mean we literally, because you can be a part of this unprecedented project.

"The Chosen series offers us the promise of watching the life of Jesus from a whole new perspective. I was so profoundly moved by the pilot, I can’t wait for your family to experience and be changed by it."

Dr. Alveda King

Why a Streaming Series About Jesus?

I've been making movies for some of the biggest studios in Hollywood for 20 years. But something like you just saw (if you followed my instruction above to check out The Chosen) shouldn't be entrusted to Hollywood. It needs to be made by us.

Believe it or not, there's never been a TV show, complete with multiple episodes and seasons about the life of Jesus.

The most important message in the world deserves the most influential medium in the world, so we're telling the greatest story ever told in The Chosen.

The Robertsons, stars of Duck Dynasty

"Wow, we were amazed by the pilot episode of The Chosen. Our family would absolutely love to see a TV series about the life of Jesus created. We’d binge watch the whole season all at once... we’re praying for the success of this project."

The Challenge

Doing this requires money. A quality television series like this can cost millions of dollars, the kind of money only Hollywood studios have traditionally. But do we really want to put the greatest story ever told in their hands?

Think of recent Hollywood bible projects: Noah, or Exodus, anyone?

Remember Hollywood's golden rule? "He who has the gold makes the rules.

"Well, now we can make our own rules."

Other crowdfunding models - person donating gets a t-shirt
The model - people invest and own part of the show

Making Our Own Rules

Unlike other crowd-funding opportunities where you get a T-shirt, you're not donating to this project. You're INVESTING. That means if this show succeeds in earning enough revenue, you may earn a share of the profits.

And the profits on Bible-based films done RIGHT can be huge. The Passion of Christ* made $600 million. History Channel's The Bible* held the record for most-watched cable series at a time.**

Plus, when you invest you'll be helping create something that you believe in, something your whole family can binge-watch without any guilt whatsoever.

*These shows are not affiliated in any way to The Chosen or its creative talent, nor are they an indicator of future success of The Chosen

**Even if The Chosen earns profits, there is no guarantee it will be enough to pay a full return to you.


"At the close, as credits rolled, tears welled and then came heaving sobs (and this, just watching it on my iPhone). “This is so powerful," was all I could manage to say. It's such a jarringly good short – the lighting, sets, costuming, everything. But the best part is, the story. You wonder where it's leading through twists and turns, then suddenly… aha! Thank you for telling the old, old story in such an impossibly fresh way."

Biblical Accuracy

We’re going to do this right. The Bible itself is divisive enough, we don’t need to create unnecessary controversy by messing with the truth (or the Truth). To that end, we are enlisting the resources of some of the top Biblical scholars (believers, mind you) to ensure two things: one, that this show accurately captures Scripture and the events surrounding it; and two, that we enhance the impact of the story with facts and meaning that you might not be aware of. We’ll also provide materials that you can use and share to get a fuller understanding of the gospel.

Here’s an example from Rabbi Jason Sobel, one of the leading Messianic rabbis on the historicity of the Bible and the life of Jesus. Watch these two minutes on the significance of “swaddling clothes” in the birth of Christ as portrayed in the pilot episode of The Chosen.

Tim Winter

"In Hollywood, epic books become marquee motion pictures and memorable television series. So why hasn’t the most epic book in human history become a television series? With so much darkness coming from Hollywood’s creative community, this series absolutely must be made; and Dallas Jenkins has proven that he’s able to do it right."

Worldwide Distribution

The Chosen will be available and translated into at least 4 languages (English, Spanish, Portuguese, and French). We will add others as we grow.
