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.
Though History's epic miniseries 'The Bible' proved at times controversial, particularly during an incident in which its portrayal of Satan had a striking resemblance to US President Barack Obama, the conclusive miniseries has continued to break ratings records for the channel. Now, series producer Mark Burnett has revealed plans to potentially market a theatrical version, and a potential sequel series, so how much more of 'The Bible' can we expect?
Controversy alert! The History Channel's new 10-part miniseries 'The Bible' has already become a hit. It's apparently so good that even conservative political personality Glenn Beck can't seem to find anything to pick apart, calling it "one of the most important shows in decades." Oh wait! He did mention a striking similarity between Satan and President Barack Obama.
