In July, it was announced that Mark Burnett and Roma Downey had decided to work on a follow-up miniseries to the popular miniseries The Bible with NBC. The network has now officially decided to move forward on the miniseries, which will air in Spring 2015.
The miniseries is titled A.D. and it will be 12 hours long, Variety reports.
NBC has been eyeing this production since the first miniseries aired, explained Robert Greenblatt, chairman of NBC entertainment. “Last year when Mark Burnett was launching The Bible on cable, I told him, without hesitation, that if he wanted to tell more of the story, we’d love to do it at NBC,” said Greenblatt.
Entertainment Weekly added that the first miniseries from Burnett aired on the History Channel and gave the network some of its highest ratings to date. It frequently topped programming on the broadcast networks.
Simon Block is set to write the new series A.D., but no director or cast has been announced.
