Saints and Sinners Unite!

The silver screen's storytelling maestro, Martin Scorsese, is swapping out gangsters for guardians of faith in his latest project, 'Martin Scorsese Presents: The Saints'! Set to premiere on Fox Nation on November 16, this eight-episode docudrama series will run the gamut of godliness through May 2025.

Each episode promises to be a divine deep-dive into a singular saint's life, from Joan of Arc's fiery fate to Francis of Assisi's animal antics. Scorsese, the man who brought you 'The Killers of the Flower Moon', is now set to explore "extraordinary figures and their extreme acts of kindness, selflessness, and sacrifice."

Crafted by Matti Leshem and developed by Scorsese for Lionsgate Alternative Television, the series is penned by Kent Jones and helmed by Elizabeth Chomko. A heavenly host of executive producers, including Julie Yorn and Rick Yorn, are blessing this project with their Midas touch.

It's a big story

"I've lived with the stories of the saints for most of my life," confessed Scorsese. His passion for these paragons of virtue is palpable as he prepares to share their tales of love and gospel-guided lives.

Jason Klarman, Fox News Media's chief digital and marketing officer, is practically preaching, "Having the greatest storyteller tell some of the greatest stories of all time is exactly the kind of exclusive content that is driving Fox Nation’s success." It's a match made in heaven!

"No matter what medium he is working in, Martin Scorsese is one of the world’s most compelling and evocative creative voices," declares Craig Piligian, Lionsgate Alternative Television's managing director. This series is set to be a moving mosaic of history's holiest.
