Lifetime has a two-part Bible-themed special close to rolling out. The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed reports that the program, “The Women of the Bible,” comes from Mark Burnett and Roma Downey.
The program will be narrated by Downey and will retell stories from the Bible focusing on important women, such as Eve and Mary Magdalene, with interviews featuring female religious leaders such as Victoria Osteen, the co-pastor of Lakewood Church, the story notes. The program will premiere Sunday, Dec. 7, at 7:30 p.m., providing a lead-in to the network’s miniseries “The Red Tent.”
“The Bible is an inspiring source of some of the most timeless stories known today, and what lies within it are important narratives about the women who play a vital role in faith,” said Lifetime Executive Vice President Rob Sharenow. “There’s no one better than Mark Burnett and Roma Downey to create this special, which is the perfect complement to Lifetime’s miniseries event ‘The Red Tent.’”
