Michelle Monaghan To Star In Netflix Drama Series

I’ve always loved Michelle Monaghan, so I’m ecstatic to learn that she’ll be headlining her own Netflix series next year. Here’s the premise behind Messiah:

A 21st Century political thriller that chronicles the world’s reaction to a man, Al-Masih, who emerges from the Middle East claiming he is sent from God and creates a groundswell of followers. Is he what they say he is or is he a dangerous fraud bent on dismantling the world’s geopolitical order, causing civil havoc as he beguiles the world’s media and its audience? Monaghan will play Eva Geller, a highly specialized US intelligence officer who pits her wits and years of experience against Al-Masih – an incendiary religious-political figure emerging out of Syria whose influence is growing.

  1. Oooh this sounds very controversial and also kinda super interesting? I’m very, very intrigued but also worried because big-concept shows like that almost never work out (remember The Messengers?)
