NBC's upcoming series A.D. The Bible Continues picks up where The Bible miniseries left off and ET sat down with the series producers Mark Burnett and Roma Downey to discuss their latest faith-based project.
"I think The Bible with 100 million viewers just showed everybody, 'Okay, this deserves to be on network TV,'" Mark told ET. "It looks epic."
After The Bible brought in massive numbers for History, expectations seem to be high for this follow-up. Mark and Roma, who have been married since 2007, have gone on tour, travelling to churches across the country and getting encouraging feedback on the new series.
"People are loving it," Mark said. "They're saying that A.D. is kind of The Bible meets House of Cards meets Game of Thrones."
