Executive producer Mark Burnett’s miniseries The Bible was a massive ratings hit on the History Channel when it aired this past March, and now NBC hopes to replicate that success with a sequel series of sorts.  THR reports that NBC has acquired the rights to A.D.: Beyond the Bible, another miniseries that Burnett will produce with his wife Roma Downey.  The series will apparently have a much narrower focus than The Bible, as it centers on the events in the days after Jesus’ betrayal and death.

The miniseries—or “limited series” as some are dubbing it—has become a new network favorite in the wake of The Bible’s success, with FX getting in on the game with Fargo and the recently-announced Last of the Mohicans adaptation, and Fox planning a limited return for 24: Live Another Day.  No word on when A.D.: Beyond the Bible might premiere, but the ratings-challenged NBC is likely hoping it comes to fruition sooner rather than later.

      So NBC shouldn’t go after a ratings hit?

    it would make since to call this a miniseries because all this “LIMITED SERIES stuff” that this people want to called now is more of a gimmick name. “LIMITED SERIES= GIMMICK NAME”
