Add to Watchlist

The ABC American biblical television drama Of Kings and Prophets takes its plotline from Samuel I and Samuel II in the Old Testament (or Hebrew Bible). The main characters are, not surprisingly, the first king of Israel Saul and his famous successor David. Other characters include Ahinoam (Saul's wife and queen), Ish-bosheth (Saul's youngest son), Jonathan (Saul's son and David's close friend, who helps him in his conflicts with his father), Michal (one of Saul's daughter, who in the biblical story disdains David as he dances), Merav (Saul's oldest daughter), Eliab (a leader in Israel), Joab (a nephew of King David and commander of Israel's army), King Achish, and of course Samuel, who is the first prophet of the nation of Israel. The television show follows the sorrows, triumphs, political rivalries, and loves of these characters as they meet their fates. Though set in biblical times, the series is filmed in South Africa, specifically in Cape Town.
