But it’s also not every day that a Hollywood power couple produces a 10-hour miniseries taking viewers from the Garden of Eden to the Book of Revelation, all in HD.
Reality TV producer Mark Burnett (of “Survivor” fame) and actress wife Roma Downey’s series, “The Bible,” premiered Sunday night on the History channel and took viewers from “In the beginning” to the Ten Commandments. You can watch a clip from behind-the-scenes below.
Said Burnett, whose hit shows include “Shark Tank” and “The Voice”: “It’s a really important series because the Bible is the book that changed the world.”
Combining celebrity starpower with the story of a savior born in a stable, CeeLo Green performed “Mary Did You Know” in a promotional video for the series published to YouTube in December. It’s been viewed nearly 3 million times.
