LACONIA — The Bible is an epic five-week, 10 hour television miniseries premiering this Sunday, March
3, at 8 p.m. on the History Channel. Each week the History Channel will show episodes on Sunday and Wednesday nights. Lifetime will also show episodes on Monday nights.
Here in the Lakes Region, people interested in knowing more about what they see on the Mini-series are invited to join a discussion group that will meet every Tuesday evening at 7 p.m. following the Sunday filming. The discussion group will meet at the Skate Escape meeting room, located at 161 Court Street, Laconia. This discussion group is sponsored by the Community Fellowship Group and is free and open to everyone.
Created by producers Mark Burnett (four-time Emmy award winner: Survivor, The Apprentice) and Roma Downey (star of Touched by an Angel), the miniseries includes an international cast of actors. The Bible miniseries is not a documentary, it is a scripted, acted docu-drama filmed on location in the Middle East and Morocco. Inspired by re-watching the classic Ten Commandments film, Mark Burnett and Roma Downey set out to show the scarlet thread of redemption found in the Bible from Genesis to Revelation, using the latest special effects and quality film-making techniques.
