Check out the CFDb Interview with Greg Batiansila.
Leaving Eden is an ensemble drama series about Ben Nicholson, a pastor, his wife Jill and family, and the new vicar (pastor-in-training) who has just arrived to change the world – and all the tensions, joys, and pains they face.
At the heart of Leaving Eden is the tension that naturally exists in the very nature of being a pastor. The statistics surrounding the calling are startling: 50 percent of pastor’s marriages end in divorce. 70 percent of pastors battle depression. 78 percent of pastors have no close friend. Only 10 percent will retire a pastor. 1,500 pastors quit each month.
Too often, Hollywood storytellers take a character who is a priest or a pastor and create tension by making him an alcoholic or a pervert. The true tension is just as powerful and far more subtle. What if a pastor got into a fight with his wife just minutes before he gave a sermon? What if a little boy dying in the hospital demands as much time as the pastor’s own son who wants to throw the baseball?
In a post-Christian world, telling a story about a man with a job like Ben Nicholson’s is an untold tale.
