As the angel Castiel on “Supernatural,” Misha Collins deals with themes of religion, damnation, and just plain gore on a daily basis. This summer, he sticks with what’s familiar in a new web series, “Divine,” produced by Vancouver-baed Maple Blood Productions.
Collins serves as co-creator and producer, and stars in the recurring role of Father Christopher. He’s working alongside Ivan Hayden, “Supernatural’s” visual effects supervisor.
In the leading role of Father Andrew is Ben Hollingsworth, a Canadian actor who played Chris Andrews on the short-lived CW Series “The Beautiful Life: TBL.”
Andrew is a young priest whose faith is tested when an immortal creature named Divine is resurrected before his eyes. Divine is played by Dan Payne, who has previously had bit parts on “Smallville” and in the “Stargate” franchise.
“Given sanctuary by the church, Divine leads a never-ending crusade to show lost souls they have the power to choose their destiny between good and evil. With guidance from the priest’s mentor and Divine’s street-smart sidekick, the Father must now confront his own demons and the dark forces that challenge Divine,” reads the description on the official site, teasing “surprises that await” the viewer.
“Divine” is set to debut in mid-summer. Check out the teaser trailer below — we dare say it’s even spookier than “Supernatural.”
