Dallas Jenkins is the director behind The Chosen, an episodic series on the life of Christ as told through the eyes of others, namely, the “chosen.” The series recently finished 8 episodes for the first season, and Dallas and his team are beginning work on season 2. The Chosen is self-distributed outside of the conventional channels. It’s free to watch on The Chosen app, with a pay it forward plan to finance it. Not only is it a unique series, it is forging a unique distribution model, and perhaps a model that will become more normal in the coming years.
