Reza Aslan

Religion scholar, author & TV host

The scholar-producer-host first came onto the scene as author of 2013’s Zealot: The Life and Times of Jesus of Nazareth and after a subsequent interview with a Fox News host on whether he, a Muslim man, could credibly write about Jesus went viral. He’s also host of Ovation talk show Rough Draft with Reza Aslan and CNN’s six-episode series Believer, in which he explores world religion. Prior to serving as a host and on-air personality, Aslan sought to diversify and bring more Middle Eastern characters into pop culture by launching BoomGen Studios in 2008.
