On Sunday night Nine premieres A.D.: The Bible Continues, a sequel to its 2013 series The Bible (which frankly, I thought was a stinker).
Again coming from producers Mark Burnett and Roma Downey, this 12 part series begins with the crucifixion of Jesus, and continues with the first ten chapters of the Book of Acts.
This time Jesus is played by Juan Pablo Di Pace not Diogo Morgado (would that make it a Bewitched-style switcheroo?) while Aussie-Italian Greta Scacchi plays Mother Mary.
Peter and the disciples experience their darkest hour in the premiere of this miniseries that dramatizes the impact of Christ’s death on his disciples and the era’s leaders.
9:35pm Sunday on Nine.
It will be followed by Stalker -and I don’t think they mean Judas…
