Created by Michael Petroni, the show details the world's reaction to a man (Mehdi Dehbi) who emerges from the Middle East creating a groundswell of followers who claim he is sent from God.

Other people question whether he is what they say he is or rather a dangerous fraud bent on dismantling the world's geopolitical order, causing civil havoc as he beguiles the world's media and its audience.

The show also featured actors Michelle Monaghan, Tomer Sisley, John Ortiz, Jane Adams, Melinda Page Hamilton, Dermot Mulroney, and Beau Bridges.
