Adventures With God
Adventures With God is the new television series from acclaimed filmmaker, Darren Wilson, where he brings his trademark humor and everyman personality to the things God is doing around the world. In AWG, Darren combines new adventures with old, adding never-before-seen moments and backstory, as well as an all new series of round table discussions with many of the people featured in his films. The point of it all is to ask big questions about God and faith that most of the church shies away from.
In Season 1, you’ll see 5 all new adventures from the filming of Darren’s Holy Ghost series, including outings in Greece, Rome, South Africa, and Brazil. You’ll relive past moments from his films, but this time with a new focus and all-new footage added, and of course, Darren will be right alongside you, asking the kinds of questions you’ve come to expect from the former skeptic and college professor.
In Season 2, you’ll once again get 5 brand new adventures that consist of Darren filming in New York City; at a college tailgate party; in St. Louis; and from behind the scenes of the filming of Finger of God 2 in Africa. And of course, just like Season 1, you’ll see the older adventures in a brand new light, complete with added footage and new guests at the round table discussions.
