Lux Vide is pleased to announce a new ambitious international project: THE RISING, a three-season drama series about the human and secular story of Jesus Christ.

In collaboration with Stephen J. Davis, ex-Hasbro Chief Content Officer, the production will have Daniel Knauf (Blacklist and Carnivale) as showrunner and executive producer and Jan Michelini (Medici, Doc, Diavoli) as director. The composer of the score will be Carlos Rafael Rivera, best known for having signed the soundtrack of hit series The Queen’s Gambit, and an Emmy winner with Netflix’s Godless.

Conceived as a 3-season series, the series will have a decidedly contemporary and international approach, capable of conquering even teenagers and non-believers.

A story that, after more than 2000 years, never ceases to interest an audience of more than 2 billion people in the world.

The creative team will shortly begin pitching potential U.S. partners and the writers room will open in Los Angeles in the coming months.
