Published in 2011, The Dovekeeprs by Alice Hoffman centers around four women who were among a group of Jews that escaped to Masada after the Romans took over Jerusalem. Set in ancient Israel, the story recounted many of the true events at Masada in 70 C.E. from a unique female perspective. Nobel laureate Toni Morrison acclaimed the book as “a major contribution to 21st century literature.”
The Dovekeeprs is brought to television by executive producers Roma Downey and multiple Emmy Award winner Mark Burnett ("Survivor", “The Voice”), the production team behind the Emmy-nominated 10-hour miniseries “The Bible,” and the feature “Son of God.”
Actresses Cote de Pablo, Rachel Brosnahan and Kathryn Prescott play the title dovekeeper roles of the series, which also stars Sam Neill as first-century Jewish scholar and historian Josephus, and Diego Boneta as a star warrior of the Jewish army at Masada.
The story is very emotional and compelling. It portrays a group of extraordinary women who are incredibly strong, smart, and courageous. While they share a common bond for survival, each of them also has their own secrets to conceal and protect. Get a sneak peak of the series below.
