Discovery+ has ordered Breaking Hillsong, a three-episode limited docuseries about the controversial megachurch Hillsong and its once-celebrity pastor Carl Lentz, from The Content Group’s Breaklight Pictures and the New York Post.

Breaking Hillsong will take viewers into the world of Hillsong, the Australia-based Christian megachurch with more than 150,000 global members that has recently come under scrutiny.

The non-fiction subscription streaming service has partnered with New York Post and investigative journalist Hannah Frishberg, who has written a series of articles on Hillsong and Lentz. Drawing on Frishberg’s articles as source material, Breaking Hillsong will chronicle the headline-making world of Hillsong, with exclusive, never-before-seen interviews, including Ranin Karim, the New York-based fashion designer whose five-month affair with Lentz led to his downfall.
