Official Press Releases
Dallas Jenkins, son of celebrated Left Behind author Jerry Jenkins, first produced the independent feature Hometown Legend at the age of 25 and shepherded it to distribution by Warner Brothers. In the nearly 20 years since then, he has directed and produced over a dozen feature and short films for companies such as Universal, Lionsgate, Pureflix, Hallmark Channel, and Amazon. His most recent film, The Resurrection of Gavin Stone, released in theaters in 2017. He is now directing and producing the largest crowd-funded media project of all-time, a multi-season series about the life of Christ entitled The Chosen.
"The acting, the storytelling... it's believable and it's excellently done."
- KIRK COUSINS
"I'm such a fan [of] this incredible series, 'The Chosen.' I pray it will make the life of Jesus jump off the page for you like it did for me."
(International Recording Artist)
"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 ROBERTSONS
(Stars of "Duck Dynasty")
"Director Dallas Jenkins’s new original series, 'The Chosen,' is revolutionary. It offers viewers a glimpse into what the daily and extraordinary life of Jesus Christ and his disciples might have looked like 2,000 years ago and invites the viewer into His story. As a producer myself, I’ve seen the power film can have to promote the Lamb’s agenda of love, truth and justice. 'The Chosen' does that in an incredibly compelling way."
- PASTOR SAMUEL RODRIGUEZ
(President, National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference)
"I just saw the pilot episode of The Chosen and I was impressed by its quality and inspired by the story. The material is biblical and the production is crisp. I am excited to see this new TV series that explores how Jesus changed those around him. May He keep changing lives today through this beautifully creative effort."
- JERRY B. JOHNSON
(President, National Religious Broadcasters)
"I think you will love it! It is just beautifully done, and it captures the spirit..."
- KIRK CAMERON
"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
(Niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.)
"I was moved to tears... and worship... as I watched."
- ANNE GRAHAM LOTZ
(Speaker & Author of
"The Daniel Prayer")
"Finally, my son does something worth watching."
- JERRY B. JENKINS
(Bestselling Author of
"The Left Behind Series")
"A TV show exclusively about the life of Jesus is long overdue. Like “The Bible” before it, underserved audiences will respond enthusiastically when presented with the kind of compelling entertainment they’re so eager to watch. The Chosen is a terrific concept, and offers families a positive alternative to so-called ‘family viewing’ options presented by Hollywood."
- DAVID BOZELL
(President, For America)
"You have to see The Chosen. It's incredible! I've cried
- KARI JOBE
(Award winning singer/songwriter)
"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."
- JONI EARECKSON TADA
(Joni and Friends)
"Though Hollywood has brought us many memorable depictions of Our Lord's life, this project captures more than any other depiction. I've seen the life-changing power of encountering Jesus--fully HUMAN, fully DIVINE. On every level--production, writing, acting, musical score, even symbolic logo--The Chosen is a masterpiece that should be seen by everyone--especially Christians. Bravissimo!!!."
- FATHER PAUL DRESSLER
"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."
