Just days after NBC officially continued its biblical hot streak with a sequel series to History's epic miniseries titled 'A.D.: Beyond the Bible,' FOX has decided to get in on the religious miniseries fervor. The network has officially committed to David Mamet's'7 Deadly Sins' as a miniseries event, but how will the sinful new drama tell its tale?
A.D.: Beyond The Bible
'The Bible' miniseries proved a surprise smash for the History Channel in all its incarnations, but if the same week that saw a potential sequel for 'Shakespeare in Love' has taught us anything, it's that sequels can never be silenced. Ergo, prepare for NBC to go beyond the bible with epic new miniseries 'A.D.,' telling the post-Crucifixion tale in 2015!
Anyone following NBC in recent years would know of the network's occasional ratings trouble, but could the network's newest projects bring in an audience of biblical proportions? Following the mammoth success of History's 'The Bible,' NBC has won the rights to air Mark Burnett and Roma Downey's sequel series 'A.D.: Beyond the Bible,' and may look to develop a new sketch comedy series, as well.
