From FOX NEWS:

It’s a story that’s been told many times before. But Mark Burnett and his wife  Roma Downey hope special effects and epic story lines will bring their series “The Bible” to life.

In a 10-part miniseries, airing on The History  Channel beginning March 3, the couple told Fox they aimed to retell the stories  of the Bible in a way that appeals to a young audience. 

“It really  is family programming,” Burnett said. “It’s for young. It’s for old. And equally  importantly it’s for teenagers.”

He said their three teenage children  advised them not to “make the special effects lame.” The “Survivor” producer  added he hopes the effects for the series will be comparable to those seen in  films like “The Hobbit,” and “Lord of the Rings.”

Downey explained that  the series would contain five episodes that focus on the Old Testament and five  episodes about the New Testament.
