TV show description:
A suspense thriller TV series, Messiah was created by Michael Petroni. The show chronicles the modern world’s reaction to a man who first appears in the Middle East. Al-Massih (Dehbi) creates a groundswell of international followers around him when he claims to be the eschatological return of ‘Isa (Jesus). Has he been sent by God or, is he a dangerous fraud who’s bent on dismantling the world’s geopolitical order?
The story unfolds from multiple points of view, including those of Eve Geller (Monaghan), a young CIA agent; an Israeli Shin Bet officer named Avrim Dahan (Sisley); Latino preacher Felix Iguero (Ortiz) and his Texan daughter, Rebecca (Owen); a refugee named Samir (Landoulsi); and the media, among others.

Eva scrambles to thwart a plan designed to silence al-Masih, while breaking news causes dismay among his followers.
First aired: January 1, 2020.
