Video streaming giant Netflix has announced that is has placed a new TV show on order, and it is pretty exciting for the faith-based community. "Messiah" is a present-day drama about Jesus' life produced by Mark Burnett and Roma Downey.

According to Deadline, the first 10 episodes of "Messiah" explore "the lines among religion, faith and politics. It chronicles the modern world's reaction to a man who first appears in the Middle East creating a groundswell of followers around Him ... the Messiah."

"Is He sent from God or is He a dangerous fraud bent on dismantling the world's geopolitical order? The story unfolds from multiple points of view, including a young CIA agent, an Israeli Shin Bet officer, a Latino preacher and his Texan daughter, a Palestinian refugee, and the media, among others," the report continues. 

Messiah promises to be a fascinating series for viewers of every faith, and a thrilling drama filled with multi-layered characters set on a global stage," said Cindy Holland, vice president of original content for Netflix.

The show is set to release on Netflix in 2019.
