Interview with Dallas Jenkins, Director of the New Hit Series The Chosen
How did a Christian television series become the largest crowd-funded media project of all-time? In this episode of A View from the Wall, we talk with Dallas Jenkins, director of the new hit series The Chosen.
The Chosen began as a short video for his church during the Christmas season from the point of view of a lame shepherd. After being encouraged to expand his project to a series on the life of Christ for the digital generation, a crowdfunding project raised $11 million from over 15,000 investors.
Our episode also includes a special word from renowned apologist Ravi Zacharias. He says, “What a blessing it was to witness the beautiful narrative of this precious project.”
Today, The Chosen is available online at TheChosen.TV, with streaming options through PureFlix. More about Dallas Jenkins and his work is below, along with a trailer from the series. You can also download the app to watch from your device right now at the links below.
