"Kingdom" (TV show) is an original drama series on DirecTV's Audience Network.

The story is about family, loyalty, ambition, glory, lust, betrayal and the raw-nerve needs and desires that inspire people to greatness or drive them to unthinkable treachery. The raw family drama is set against the world of Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) in Venice, California. Alvey Kulina (Frank Grillo) owns Navy St. MMA with the help of his girlfriend Lisa Prince (Kiele Sanchez). He is willing to go through extraordinary means to make sure his fighters are taken care of, but all of this responsibility comes at a steep price. He has complicated relationships with both of his sons, Jay (Jonathan Tucker) and Nate (Nick Jonas), who are both struggling with their own identities and places within Alvey's life and gym.

The cast includes Frank Grillo ("Captain America: The Winter Soldier," "Homefront," "Warrior") as Alvey "King" Kulina and Kiele Sanchez ("The Glades," "Lost") as Lisa Prince, his long-time girlfriend. Matt Lauria ("Friday Night Lights") plays Ryan Revis, the intelligent, good-looking world-class athlete who had it all, including Lisa Prince, who shows up at Alvey's gym after doing time in prison, which was precipitated by a spiraling drug addiction. Jonathan Tucker ("Parenthood") plays Jay, Alvey's eldest son, once a promising fighter, who is struggling with addiction. Nick Jonas plays Nate, Alvey's youngest son and the prized fighter at the gym. Joanna Going ("House of Cards," "Mad Men") plays Christina, Alvey's estranged wife and mother to Jay and Nate.

"Kingdom" is produced by Endemol Studios ("Hell on Wheels," "Low Winter Sun," "Red Widow"). Series creator Byron Balasco ("Detroit 1-8-7") is executive producer and showrunner. The series will be distributed internationally by Endemol Worldwide Distribution.
