“Religious-themed offerings, like `The Ten Commandments,’ have been perennials for broadcast television. Not surprisingly, the attention given to `The Passion of the Christ’ has again sparked renewed interest in the topic of religion and religious-based dramas on television.”
Bill Carroll, VP, director of programming, Katz Television Group
“The box office for `The Passion’ clearly indicates a broad-based appeal, which is what television is all about. We’re thrilled at the spotlight that the film has thrown on the potential audience for multifaith programming, which we, through a new venture, are committed to producing.”
Stephen Ellis, president, Ellis Entertainment
