DESCRIPTION:
(from CNN's press release, February 2018) The new CNN Original Series, American Dynasties: The Kennedys, will debut on Sunday, March 11, at 9 p.m. ET/PT, followed by the premiere of Pope: The Most Powerful Man in History at 10 p.m. ET/PT on CNN. Golden Globe and Emmy Award-winning actor Martin Sheen and international actor Liam Neeson serve as narrator on The Kennedys and Pope respectively. "Ever since a man, claiming to be the Son of God, was nailed to a wooden cross over 2000 years ago, the Catholic religion has had a huge and profound influence and impact on our society," said Neeson. "As an amateur scholar myself, I was delighted to learn more about this by narrating a series that sheds a detailed light on how the Popes, past and present, and the Catholic Church came to be a prevailing force through fair means and foul, and along the way inspired some of the world's greatest works of art." Pope: The Most Powerful Man in History, from Glass Entertainment Group and Rearrange TV, is a six-part CNN Original Series that goes inside the Vatican to reveal the true power held by popes throughout the ages. The docuseries explores how 12 apostles became 1.2 billion Catholics today, linking recent news events surrounding the Vatican with their unexpected origins. The premiere episode, "The Rise of the Pope," examines the origins of the papacy and how Catholicism, against all odds, spread throughout Europe. Jon Hirsch, Nancy Glass, Randy Counsman, Amy Entelis and Lizzie Fox serve as executive producers.
