"The Bible" History Channel's New Docudrama Miniseries
"Survivor" producer Mark Burnett and "Touched By An Angel" leading lady Roma Downey are a little more than a week away from releasing their spiritual epic series "The Bible" on the History Channel.
The 10-hour docudrama will cover highlights of the Bible from the book of Genesis to Revelation. The inaugural episode is set to air March 3rd of this year, concluding on Easter Sunday. The 10-hour docudrama is broken into five two hour episodes.
Here's an exclusive look at "The Bible":

This isn't the first time someone has tried to compress the entire story of Christianity into a viewer-friendly format. In 1966 Fox released The Bible: In The Beginning, to little success. One of Charlton Heston's most famous roles was Moses in The Ten Commandments. Pre-tabloid lunatic Mel Gibson directed The Passion of the Christ, which starred Jim Caviezel as Jesus during his last days on Earth.
Where Burnett seems like the industrial L.A. type, only in it for the money, Roma Downer seems a little more spiritually connected to the project.
She told online entertainment site TheBlaze after a 90-minute screening of "The Bible" late last year: "We really felt called to do this. [It] just kept tugging at our hearts," Downey told reporters, later adding, "We really felt God's hand there with us."
In March we'll find out if viewers are engaged by the seemingly exploitative topic or if the show destroys the History Channel similar to how Sarah Palin single-handedly ruined John McCain's chances at the 2012 presidential election.
