Of Kings & Prophets pilot which recently shot in Cape Town, has been picked up for a full season by ABC.
Written by Adam Cooper & Bill Collage and directed by Jeffrey Nachmanoff, it stars Ray Winstone as Saul, Oliver Rix as David and Simone Kessel as Anohim.

In the pilot Joe Vaz plays Amos, the Queen’s (Kessel) aide and tax-collector. It also stars local sensation Alex McGregor as Merav and Brett Williams as Maatiyahu.

The project, from ABC Studios, is described as an epic biblical saga of faith, ambition and betrayal as told through the eyes of a battle-weary king, a powerful and resentful prophet and a resourceful young shepherd on a collision course with destiny.
