I hate Christian rock band Jars of Clay not because they're a Christian rock band but because they're hacks and play shitty music. Ignore the soundtrack and you have a pretty decent trailer for a pretty decent show.

Kings is set in the nation of Gilboa, which technologically and culturally resembles an alternate present-day United States, but with an absolute monarch, King Silas.

Twenty years before the series takes place, the Unification War was fought between three countries and eventually ended by Silas Benjamin, an ambitious and capable man who rose from the rank of common soldier to be leader of one of the factions.

In present day, a soldier named David Shepherd is hailed as a national hero when he takes down a Goliath tank single-handed with a make-shift anti-tank grenade while rescuing the King's son, Jack Benjamin.

David is taken to Shiloh where Silas promotes him to Captain and makes him military media liaison. At court, he meets the king's daughter Michelle and an attraction begins between them. Jack is upset that David is being treated as a hero while Jack is being investigated for negligence resulting in the ambush.

The rest of the series follows the lives and political manipulations of the characters in the capitol of Shiloh.

Thats an edited version of the Wikipedia page found here because anything else would be a spoiler.

The concept may seem pretty dry but its actually very involving. Its an alternative history show with a political/military feel to it. Ian McShane from Deadwood plays King Silas along with a bunch of actors and actresses who to this point haven't had very major roles (except for some guy who was in Gossip Girl).
