From reality producer Mark Burnett, The Bible is a five part/ten hour docudrama series which re-tells famous stories as they unfold and reveals new insights into these iconic characters in context of the Bible. The series will feature some of the most famous stories ever written from Noah’s Ark and the Exodus to Daniel in the Lion’s Den to the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus. The mini-series was produced by Lightworkers Media and Hearst Entertainment & Syndication.
