JESUS' DISCIPLES TAKE TV BY STORM
Producers of 'A.D.' tell WND about riveting new series
Husband-and-wife team Roma Downey and Mark Burnett, are bringing the Bible back.
In 2013, executive producers Roma Downey (of “Touched by an Angel” fame) and Mark Burnett (executive producer of “Survivor,” “Shark Tank” and other hit shows) blew the roof off cable TV ratings with “The Bible” miniseries. Now the duo is moving to broadcast television with a 12-part follow-up series: “A.D.: The Bible Continues.”
Debuting on Easter Sunday, April 5, at 9 p.m. Eastern / 8 p.m. Central on NBC and continuing on Sunday nights, “A.D.” will dramatize the days following Jesus’ death and resurrection, as the first Christian disciples endured both Jewish and Roman persecution to spread the good news that would change the world forever.
Downey and Burnett told WND they hope this riveting new drama – which has already been described as “‘Game of Thrones’ meets ‘The Bible’” – will captivate audiences the way “The Bible” did and become destination TV for many seasons to come.
“When we brought ‘The Bible’ to the screen, many people thought we had lost our minds and no one would want to see the story of our Bible on television,” Downey recalled, “but we now know that 100 million people showed up [to watch 'The Bible']. We wanted an opportunity to take a deeper dive into the story, particularly into the Book of Acts, to bring to life the journey of the remaining disciples and the tumultuous time they were living.”
