Father Tomas Ortega (Alfonso Herrera, “Sense8,” “The Chosen”) is the
new face of the Catholic Church: progressive, ambitious and
compassionate. He runs a small, but loyal, parish in the suburbs of
Chicago. He has no idea that his quiet life is about to change forever.
Deep in the slums of Mexico City, another priest has found himself
locked in a life-and-death struggle with evil. Father Marcus Keane (Ben
Daniels, “Flesh and Bone,” “House of Cards”) is a modern-day Templar
Knight, an orphan raised since childhood by the Vatican to wage war
against its enemies. Father Marcus is everything Father Tomas is not:
relentless, abrasive and utterly consumed by his mission – and he
constantly butts heads with his adversary within the church, Father Bennet (Kurt Egyiawan, “Beasts of No Nation”).
