Christian viewers, which alone represent a faith community of 2.48 billion worldwide, are hungry for uplifting, authentic stories that excite their imagination and ground them in bib- lical truths. This faith focused genre exploded when Mel Gibson, in 2014 produced The Last T emptation of Christ, garnering more than 200 million viewers worldwide.
The Chosen, an episodic, in its second season with over 80 million viewers, continues to touch audiences with faith content. At The End of The Santa Fe Trail combines that deep religious faith and places it in the wild west, a genre that is always in demand. A look at the recent streaming services shows no less than 10 westerns, with loyal audiences.
