Michael Iskander to Lead Prime Video Series


Michael Iskander (Kimberly Akimbo) is set to star in Prime Video’s upcoming biblical drama House of David.

The series, based on the rise of King David, is produced by The Wonder Project and Amazon MGM Studios in association with Nomadic Pictures and Argonauts, along with Kingdom Story Company and Lionsgate Television. Production is currently underway in Greece.

The series also stars Ali Suliman (Jack Ryan, Arthur the King) as King Saul, Ayelet Zurer (Angels and Demons, Man of Steel) as Queen Ahinoam, Stephen Lang (Avatar: The Way of Water, Don’t Breathe) as Samuel and Martyn Ford (Mortal Kombat 2, The Sandman) as Goliath.

Jon Erwin, executive producer and director, commented: “House of David is our telling of a 3,000 year old hero’s journey, and it all starts with our David, Michael Iskander. Finding Michael and getting to work with him has been one of the most fulfilling experiences of my life. Our entire cast is incredible, and I can’t wait for a global audience to get to know them the way I do.”
