Options for Easter-time TV viewing once were limited to Snoopy frolicking in bunny ears and Charlton Heston carrying the Ten Commandments. Then, the History Channel aired the 10-part miniseries “The Bible” in 2013 to record-setting ratings. Fast-forward a few years, and the tube has become crowded with faith-based stories. Last Sunday National Geographic kicked off their ‘Killing Jesus’. Tonight CBS airs a two-part mini-series called ‘Dovekeepers.’
In the follow-up to the eye-opening success of “The Bible” miniseries on History, the 12-hour miniseries “A.D. The Bible Continues” will look at the lives that were instantly altered following the death of Christ.
His disciples, mother Mary and key political religious leaders at the time saw their world turned upside down and their lives forever altered.
Beginning at that fateful moment of the Crucifixion and the Resurrection, part two of the greatest story ever told will focus on the disciples who had to go forward and disseminate the teachings of Christ to a world dominated by political unrest and the start of a whole new religion that would dramatically reshape the history of the world.
Mark Burnett, Roma Downey and Richard Bedser serve as executive producers. Simon Block will write the script. “”A.D. The Bible Continues” is a production of LightWorkers Media.
