Coming soon: The Bible

The Bible promises powerful performances, exotic locales and some dazzling visual effects that will breathe life into the book you last avoided in RE all those years ago. The Bible – the TV series, but also the book – has been a huge success in the USA.

“We are honoured and excited to bring The Bible series to the UK audience,” said executive producers Roma Downey and Mark Burnett. “This is such a wonderful time of year for families to be able to share the stories of the Bible and it is a great home coming for us.”

Narrated by BAFTA award winner Robert Powell (Jesus of Nazareth), The Bible features powerful performances from a formidable UK cast including Nonzo Anozie (Game of Thrones), Kierston Wareing (Eastenders), Louise Delamere (Waking the Dead), Matthew Gravelle (Broadchurch) Jake Canuso (Benidorm), Paul Freeman (Hot Fuzz), Simon Kunz (The Parent Trap) and Peter Guinness (Centurion). Portuguese actor Diogo Morgado stunningly portrays Jesus Christ and beloved Irish actress Roma Downey stars as Mother Mary.

Emmy® nominated epic The Bible will debut on Channel 5 on November 30th and comes to Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD on December 26
