‘Of Kings and Prophets’ Pulled From ABC’s Schedule; ‘Quantico’ to Take Its Slot

Biblical freshman drama will undergo casting changes


ABC has pulled its upcoming Biblical drama “Of Kings and Prophets” from its schedule to implement some casting changes, an individual with knowledge of the situation told TheWrap on Tuesday.

The series had been scheduled for the Sunday at 10 p.m. timeslot. The freshman drama “Quantico,” about a diverse group of recruits training at the FBI Quantico base, will air in its place. “Quantico” had originally been slotted for Tuesday at 10 p.m.

“Of Kings and Prophets,” which is produced by ABC Studios, had cast Ray Winstone, Haaz Sleiman, Maisie Richardson-Sellers and Oliver Rix, among others.

The series, written by Adam Cooper and Bill Collage (“Exodus: Gods and Kings”), is billed as an “epic Biblical saga of faith, ambition and betrayal as told through the eyes of a battle-weary king, a powerful and resentful prophet and a resourceful young shepherd on a collision course with destiny.”
