VidAngel, the popular entertainment app making entertainment good for your home, is releasing the official trailer and the first episode of its original scripted series The Chosen--the first-ever multi-season series about the life of Christ--for free in an exclusive pre-release period beginning today. The series is the #1 crowdfunded media project in history, raising over $10 million from more than 16,000 investors who made its creation possible.
"Every time we release content about the show, people ask where they can watch it. So, this time, if people watch our official full-length trailer and get excited, they don't need to wait. Episode one is free, and if they want to purchase all four episodes in advance of their release on VidAngel in November, they can," said Dallas Jenkins, Director of The Chosen.
In late 2017, The Chosen Productions, partnering with distributor VidAngel, released an 18-minute concept pilot in social media to gauge potential public interest in creating a series called The Chosen, which was ultimately seen by more 20 million people.
Directed by Dallas Jenkins, "The Chosen" has raised over $10 million in crowdfunding from over 16,000 investors, unseating "Mystery Science Theater 3000" as the #1 crowdfunded film or TV project in history. Audiences having been raving about the credits, which are 8-minutes long and list the investors who have backed the project.
