The Chosen to premiere on Middle Eastern broadcast networks for the first time ever

by Kelly Valencia

Popular series The Chosen is set to make its debut in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region later this month.

The series, which follows the life of Jesus, is one of the most successful Christian media projects of the last few decades with over 200 million viewers worldwide.

SAT-7, an international Christian media ministry, will air the series on their platforms after dubbing it into Arabic, Farsi, and Turkish.

SAT-7’s Ministry Content Advisor George Makeen said: “This is a great opportunity to share the gospel with viewers in the MENA: The Chosen presents the Gospel within a rich context: the old Middle Eastern culture that framed the biblical events. As SAT-7 presents this series in the MENA languages, we believe many viewers will be introduced and re-introduced to the Good News in a way that touches their hearts and minds.”

Originating from an independently produced pilot in 2017, The Chosen garnered immense anticipation, leading to over $10 million in crowdfunding and becoming one of the largest crowdfunded projects ever.

Now, seven years and three series later, the series has attracted the attention of industry giants such as Amazon and Netflix and is currently available in 26 languages.

In a world of fake news there’s never been a greater need for quality Christian journalism. Premier’s mission is to provide the Church with the most up to date and relevant news, told from a Christian perspective. But we can’t do it without you.

Unlike many websites we haven't put up a paywall — we want to keep our journalism free at the point of need and as open as we can. Premier’s news output takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. No one in the USA is sharing news like we are across radio, magazines and online so please help us to continue that today.

For a monthly gift of $11 or more we’d also be able to send you a free copy of the brand new Premier Bible, a wonderful Anglicised version of the NLT packed with exclusive bonus content, reading plan and resources to help you get the most out of scripture.

Your monthly support will make a world of difference. Thank you.
