'THE RED TENT' EPIC TV SERIES
DAUGHTERS & WIVES OF JACOB
Yet another series that is about to premiere over at Lifetime at December 7th and 8th as a two night mini series is THE RED TENT! The historical mini follows Dinah (Rebecca Ferguson), a daughter of Jacob, who tells us of the world of the red tent, the place where women were sequestered during their cycles of birthing, menses, and illness! She speaks of Jacob's courtship with his four wives; of caravans, farmers, shepherds, and slaves; of love and death in the city of Shechem; and of her half-brother Joseph's rise in Egypt! Minnie Driver, Morena Baccarin, Iain Glen, Will Tudor, Debra Winger also star!


'A.D.' HISTORICAL TV SERIES
GETS FIRST EPIC TRAILER WITH PONTIUS AND JESUS!
Sticking to the Bible based series, NBC has released the first trailer for their A.D: BEYOND THE BIBLE historical series, which will air next year as a follow-up to History's THE BIBLE exploring the exciting  and inspiring events that followed the Crucifixion of Christ. To start on Easter Sunday it will begin with the fall-out from the betrayal of Christ by Judas, tracing how the gospel began to spread despite intense  opposition from the Romans. As most of the world knows, the Crucifixion was only the beginning of the story. The immediate aftermath of Christ's death had a massive impact on his disciples, his mother Mary, and key political and religious leaders of the era, completely altering the entire world in an instant. Watch as the disciples struggle to survive and share their beliefs, guiding us from the sorrow of  Christ's ultimate sacrifice to the awe-inspiring wonder of the Resurrection and beyond. Stellar cast includes Vincent Regan as Pontius Pilate, Richard Coyle, Emmet Scanlan, James Callis, Greta Scacchi and Juan Pablo Di Pace as Jesus!

  2. I agree with the above comment...it is a biblical season. My man and I are taking RCIA together so he can get baptized. All the priest kept saying last week is how can we keep Christ in Christmas. Maybe I should recommend your page.

    1. I will watch RED TENT since it is only two episodes and looks really epic, but will probably skip AD eventhough I love both Regan and Coyle

  8. I probably won't watch these. I've never been a fan of biblical shows. They rarely get them right.

  10. While I steer clear of most shows along the lines of religion, I do think The Red Tent looks good. I may have to record it and give it try. If not, the delete button is a good friend of mine :)

  12. A bunch of PMS-ing women trapped in a tent? Sounds like a roaring good time.

  13. I always like the concept of Biblical stories put on film, but unfortunately Hollywood often screws things up by promoting their own agenda and mixing in some weird stuff. Hope they do better with these films.

    1. This second one is done by Roma Downey who did THE BIBLE too and she is extremely religious, they even aired that show in churches and used it for their religious propaganda :)
