You can tell a new TV season is imminent as the skies of L.A. are filled with a whole host of new billboards for shows trying to grab your attention and capture passersby imagination.

This season ABC Studios is jumping on the Biblical bandwagon and bringing viewers a new series based on the Books of Samuel, including the tale of 'David and Goliath' in Of Kings and Prophets.

Set a thousand years before the birth of Christ, this tale of faith, ambition and betrayal follows the lives of battle-weary 'King Saul' (played by Ray Winstone), the prophet 'Samuel' (Mohammad Bakri) and the young shepherd 'David' (Olly Rix).

The outdoor ad campaign for the new series certainly has an epic feel to it, and they seem to be trying to channel the gravitas and grittiness of HBO's Game of Thrones in these ad creatives.

Also helping to make these billboards stand out is the painted over look that resembles the film style of 2006's A Scanner Darkly.

The imposing giant-sized billboard for Of Kings and Prophets was snapped towering over West Hollywood's Sunset Strip on February 5, 2016.

The other dramatic landscape billboards for the series were spotted from February 12 to February 15, 2016 above Sunset Boulevard, La Brea Avenue and Hollywood Boulevard, with the infamous slingshot battle David and Goliath depicted along Highland Avenue.

It's interesting ABC Studios decided to try this kind of Biblical drama after NBC's A.D. The Bible Continues only lasted one season, but these days networks seem to be willing to try anything to compete with the streaming services stealing audiences with fresh and compelling original shows.

Then again naysayers said that ABC's fairytale series Once Upon a Time would never work and that show's currently enjoying its fifth season.

For more dramatic Biblical epics, be sure to also check out these movie billboards for Exodus: Gods and Kings and these Noah movie billboards.

Only time will tell what the future holds for this new series, we could really use a prophet at a time like this.
