Perhaps you saw the epic mini-series "The Bible" when it aired on the History Channel. After their success with the mini series, producers Roma Downey (Touched by and Angel) and Mark Burnett decided to go further and bring the life of Jesus to the big screen.
Following in the footsteps of Franco Zefferelli's "Jesus of Nazareth", Downey and Burnnett's "Son of God" was shot on location in Morocco. Painstaking care was taken to faithfully bring to life the places of Jesus' life.
This Friday, get a sneak peak behind the scenes of "Son of God" and see how it all came together: how Downey and Burnett "found" Jesus and the talented cast and crew who worked to bring the life and passion of Jesus to the big screen.
Tune in Friday, March 28 at 8:00pm ET to watch Son of God: Behind the Scenes.
