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.
