ABC and Hallmark Entertainment Thursday announced plans to develop “The Ten Commandments,” a four-hour miniseries. The two-part epic, which will present the biblical story of Exodus and an authentic portrayal of 13th century B.C. Egypt, will be executive-produced by Robert Halmi, Sr.

Robert Dornhelm (“Spartacus–The Miniseries,” “Anne Frank”) is directing Ron Hutchinson (“Traffic–The Miniseries,” “The Josephine Baker Story”) is writing and Howard Ellis (“Mitch Albom’s The Five People You Meet in Heaven”) is producing.

Quinn Taylor, ABC’s senior VP of motion pictures for television and miniseries, will oversee the project.
