The History Channel has big plans to make must-see-TV out of the Bible. Many years ago there was a mini-series that portrayed the Old Testament of the Bible. We have seen many interpretations of the Bible. We have several versions of the story of Jesus Christ. Unlike the previous versions we have seen, this will venture through the entire bible.
“The Bible” mini-series comes from reality producer Mark Burnett, which will air as a five-part, 10-hour scripted docu-drama with live-action and state-of-the-art CGI. Given both its scale and production value, The Bible won’t appear on History’s schedule until 2013. The 10-hour religious docu-drama for 2013 that will include live-action and state-of-the-art CGI.
“This is probably the most important book in mankind, regardless of your beliefs or religious affiliation,” History president and general manager Nancy Dubuc tells The Hollywood Reporter. “This series will bring the historical stories of the Bible to life for a new generation.”
The series, which was conceived by Burnett and his wife, actress Roma Downey will set out to tell the tome’s stories, including Noah’s Ark, the Exodus and the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus.
