The internet series “The Chosen,” which dramatizes the life of Jesus and His disciples, has nearly completed its funding for a third season and will soon raise funds for season four.
“Within the next couple months we should have all of season three funded for sure,” the series’ executive producer Derral Eves told CNA on July 8.
The show’s second season premiered on Easter Sunday. Tens of thousands of donors gave $10 million through crowdfunding for each of the first two seasons; about 91% of funding is complete for the coming third season. Eves told CNA that funding comes from people “all over the world.”
“The Chosen,” which provides its shows for free through an app for iOS or Android systems, or through the website of VidAngel, airs new shows right after filming is complete. The directors decided against the traditional TV show model of airing shows at a set time each week.
