A new Turkish Netflix docu-drama about the story of Moses is coming to Netflix in March 2024 and will likely be turning some heads. Details are minimal, but here’s everything we know about Testament: The Story of Moses so far.

As a biblical story from the Book of Exodus, the story of Moses, as agreed by scholars, is not an actual historical event. However, as one of the most famous tales from the bible, making the series a docu-drama with theologians and historians taking part has all the making for another controversial docu-drama.

The show is being produced by Karga7 Productions, who have offices in both Istanbul and Los Angeles and have worked with Netflix before. Their previous projects for Netflix include Rise of Empires: Ottoman, which ran for two seasons, and they’re also behind Midnight at the Pera Palace. Elsewhere, the production company is behind Yeni Hayat and Hekimoglu.

It’s fair to say that Netflix has a controversial track record regarding historical docudrama. Recent examples like Alexander: The Making of a God and Queen Cleopatra have been controversial, to say the least, when it comes to historical accuracy. That said, it’s likely this controversy has helped them perform far better when it comes to their viewership.

At least three episodes will be making up the limited series. No runtimes have been announced as of yet.
