History Channel to air miniseries 'The Bible'

Famed reality show producer Mark Burnett has brought Americans popular programs like “Survivor,” “The Apprentice,” “Shark Tank” and “The Voice.” But his next project, “The Bible,” a mini-series set to air on the History Channel in 2013, may come as a surprise to some. The program, which takes the holy book from Genesis to Revelation and re-enacts it, will air in two-hour intervals over a five-week period.

Recently, TheBlaze attended a screening that was hosted by Burnett and his wife, actress Roma Downey (“Touched by an Angel”).
