Well it's a story nearly everybody knows tool like never before an epic ten part mini -- brings like the Bible.
Retelling stories from the scripture for a whole new generation.
-- pretty powerful join us now the power couple.
Behind the mini series called the Bible reality TV creator Mark Burnett you know from the show survivor.
And his wife actress from town to deceive both of you together.
More so wonderful I think -- -- Forward to this series because it looks like the entire family can watch together.
Really used them reprogramming.
And it's the youngest old.
-- -- -- it's the team he's with three teenagers and gave us some advice as we left from Morocco six months that police guys.
Don't like the special -- blame you and I love this.
Hope it lord the rings and and we really knock -- the -- the.
With -- -- and the great news is just this last week they took a clip and to their high scope.
And they screened it for the whole school -- -- we -- that we must have got it right we'll -- this topic because I kids that age you know let's hope so hard to get him to put down their iphones and -- taxi for a minute so.
That would really becomes critical -- are the stories that you tell because they've got somehow be you know something that the kid.
And the best you're not sensible and do well -- find it.
Just show you a big battle scenes in the old system obviously.
-- stuff without parting of the Red Sea Jericho walls come down.
Gang lines then of course Jesus walking -- -- Just really really -- -- really -- -- two revelation.
So you usually in the old testament and the new testament how is it broken Dowling how many how many would go into each series we have five episodes the old testament.
-- for the new -- beyond five weeks that's -- next Sunday.
With the finale on Easter Sunday I thought it was amazing to -- -- that best seller become a movie that was intimidating.
How we can easy get the best seller the Bible to -- into a TV series luck than that even into what you do.
You know it within a very seriously hot lots of advisors and theologians and Rick Warren's question -- bonds as -- Austrian bishop -- it was a big big advisors.
But what you commit.
It is go do it.
If that let me ask you why that's why -- was so important for you personally to do this because let's face it sometimes in Hollywood talking about christianity.
And the fact that Europe a big believers not necessarily really popular to make into a TV series.
Well you know I think worry we're ahead of it and I kind.
In that next -- the -- will be really popular in honey -- -- -- -- -- With Russell -- -- -- but looking on knows his folks are working on knows this threat has apparently is going to be punches kind of will be having.
So I think actually we go cyclically.
We -- because we love the Bible.
-- -- think there's that sense of biblical illiteracy so embarrassingly slow within America right now -- did you -- Series let America know -- that they care.
The success -- TV series let everybody know you can put out a series that had the right values and I think absolutely I think people are hungry for hope.
People are hungry for meaning in their lives people are hungry for god.
And the series is presents the Bible.
But ultimately I think it really connect to -- it sounds terrific and we've seen little of -- so we look forward to watching at the Bible's gonna smear on the History Channel Sunday at 8 PM.
Eastern march the third and you can find the series on dvd a month later on grains and what is hole water dealing with.
The Bible or Donald Trump especially Celebrity Apprentice.
