The Bible Mini is a Respectable Effort by Mark Burnett and Roma Downey
The Bible (History - Sunday, 8pm) - Producers Mark Burnett and Roma Downey have reached out to a faith-based
community that’s often wary of Hollywood as they promote their
five-part, 10-hour epic, and if history is any guide (think The Passion
of the Christ), that could yield boffo ratings for History. As for
this handsome, sober but somewhat unimaginative project, the first half
plays like a medley of the Old Testament’s greatest hits, before the
true star of the show, Jesus Christ, finally arrives.
