While "The Chosen" is not an explicilty Catholic show, the character who plays Jesus (Jonathan Roumie) is a devout Catholic and very open about his faith. Check out the videos of Jonathan speaking about his faith in the videos below. While there are small issues with the show - as pertains to Catholic doctrine, such as the low depiction of Mary or some dialogue that may not fit with Catholic understanding or teaching - "The Chosen" is attempting to be a faithful, plausible depiction of the possible struggles the Apostles underwent during their encounter and ministry with Jesus of Nazareth. With those caveats in mind, the Chosen would be something we'd recommend to contemplate Christ, the Gospels, and the witness of the Apostles.
