Amazon MGM Studios Is Developing A New Show About King David

Another Bible-based TV show is in development, and this one is all about King David.

Amazon MGM Studios is partnering with The Wonder Project to launch House of David, which follows “the once-mighty King Saul as he falls victim to his own pride. A prophet prepares to overthrow him — anointing the outcast shepherd boy David as a second king. As Saul’s fury grows, David navigates love, violence and politics in the court of the very man he’s destined to replace. Two kings. One Kingdom. The outcome is war.”

Sounds intense.

Leading the charge on this series is The Wonder Project, a film and TV studio led by producer Jon Erwin (Jesus Revolution, I Can Only Imagine) and entertainment executive Kelly Merryman Hoogstraten. Dallas Jenkins, creator of a little show called The Chosen, is also a major shareholder in the company.

“When we met with Jon, Kelly, and Dallas, their clear and passionate vision for The Wonder Project and their ambition to nurture universal stories of love, triumph and spirituality moved us.” said Vernon Sanders, head of television, Amazon MGM Studios. “We are very excited about the scope, scale and storytelling involved with House of David and look forward to sharing this epic and many others with our global Prime Video customers.”

In December 2023, The Wonder Project signed a deal to develop more series and films rooted in faith for Prime Video.

“Our goal at The Wonder Project is to tell stories that restore faith in things worth believing in, and to do this at scale,” Kelly Merryman Hoogstraten said. “We’ve been blown away by Amazon’s commitment to help us do this — both through the significant resources they are dedicating and their trust in us to tell these stories authentically to our audience.”
