NBC has announced it will team up with producers Mark Burnett and Roma Downey for the follow-up to their popular cable mini-series, “The Bible.” The new initiative, “A.D.: Beyond the Bible,” will focus on the story of Jesus’ betrayal and death, and the aftermath that ensues, according to NBC.
Although the story line is in the early stages of development, executives anticipate the new show will be a major hit.
“I followed the development process of ‘The Bible’ closely with Mark and knew that the story was far from over after Christ’s Crucifixion. In fact, what happened in the aftermath – which is essentially the beginning of Christianity – is utterly fascinating,” said Bob Greenblatt, chairman of NBC Entertainment, in a statement.
“The day after ‘The Bible’ premiered, I told Mark we were on board with no hesitation for the follow-up miniseries. This will be attention-getting in every way, and we’re proud to continue our association with Mark which has just grown exponentially from ‘The Voice,'” he added.
