TV show description:
This dramatic series is a saga of faith, ambition and betrayal and is based on the Biblical Books of Samuel. It’s told through the eyes of the battle-weary King Saul, the resentful prophet Samuel, and the resourceful young shepherd David. The three are on a collision course with destiny and the story that unfolds is still being told today.
A thousand years before Christ, the first king of the Israelites, Saul (Ray Winstone), struggles to unify the dozen Israelite tribes and defend his fledgling nation against savage enemy attacks.
He is married to Queen Ahinoam (Simone Kessell) and their children are Jonathan (Haaz Sleiman), Merav (Jeanine Mason), Ishbaal (James Floyd), and Michal (Maisie Richardson-Sellers).
The prophet Samuel (Mohammad Bakriz) relays a message from God to King Saul that he must destroy one of Israel’s ancient enemies. But, when Saul defies that message, Samuel prophesies that the Lord will tear the kingdom of Israel from him and choose another in his place.
In time, Saul comes to realize that his greatest threat doesn’t come from his enemies, but from the shepherd named David (Olly Rix).
