KILLING JESUS (NGC)
BROADCAST HISTORY:
3/29/15
STATUS:
telefilm/mini-series in the can
DESCRIPTION:
(from National Geographic Channel's press release, February 2015) It's a story nearly the whole world knows, with more than 2.2 billion people around the globe following the teachings and principles of Jesus of Nazareth. But the intimate historical details of his life and the political collusions that led to his brutal demise bring intriguing context to the familiar story. This spring, National Geographic Channel's KILLING JESUS, produced by Scott Free Productions and based on the New York Times best-selling book by Bill O'Reilly and Martin Dugard, dives deep inside the historical story of how Jesus' message and preachings led to his persecution and execution by a group of conspirators who saw him as a threat to their power. KILLING JESUS, a three-hour television event, will premiere on Palm Sunday, March 29, at 8 p.m. ET/PT on National Geographic Channel in the United States, globally in 171 countries in 45 languages and in Spanish on Nat Geo Mundo. The film is the third collaboration between NGC, Scott Free and Bill O'Reilly, whose first two projects together, Emmy-nominated Killing Kennedy and Killing Lincoln are respectively the two most-watched programs in the network's history.
