Bringing a Darker Spirituality to Prime Time

There are plenty of spiritual TV projects in the works (NBC’s A.D.: Beyond the Bible, Fox’s Nazareth), but several shows are taking the programming trend in a different direction—examining the dark side of the supernatural. Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg are teaming up with former Breaking Bad co-producer Sam Catlin to adapt the controversial comic Preacher, the story of a minister possessed by a supernatural being. Here are four more series that are exploring darkness and spirituality:

###The Lost Years

Controversial horror director Eli Roth imagines Jesus’ early years—as an exorcist—for the History Channel.


NBC is adapting the DC Comics series about an occult detective this fall. Sadly, this version will be Keanu-free.


Lifetime’s spinoff of The Omen features a look at the dramatic coming-of-age years of the future Antichrist.

###The Leftovers

HBO and Lost mastermind Damon Lindelof are behind the new TV adaptation of the 2011 novel about a global rapture.
