(CHRISTIANPOST) — After airing only two episodes, the ABC television network has cancelled it's risque "soap opera"-like biblical saga "Of Kings and Prophets."
Said to be inspired by the Bible's Old Testament, the drama sparked controversy due to its graphic sex and violence, which prompted the Parents Television Council to issue a warning to advertisers on March 1. PTC president Tim Winter sees the cancellation as a victory.
"We're very delighted in that decision made by ABC," Winter told The Christian Post on Friday. "We certainly question why they would ever put it on the air to begin with, but the good news is it has received a death sentence just two weeks in."
