Denver Isaac is James in the new epic miniseries A.D. which premieres Easter Sunday on NBC. Brother to John, James is boisterous and outspoken, and one of the hands-on leaders of the fledgling Christian commune in Jerusalem.
Mark Burnett and Roma Downey‘s follow-up to their highly rated miniseries The Bible that aired on History earlier this year. The project, produced by LightWorkers Media with Burnett, Downey and Richard Bedser serving as executive producers, is eyeing a premiere in spring 2015.
A.D. traces the story of the harrowing birth of Christianity. How did a group of 12 men grow to become the largest, most powerful religion in history? How did a mere handful of believers break from Jewish orthodoxy, challenge the might of Rome…. and survive? This is the dramatic true story of how Christianity almost never happened, an epic tale that begins with a very human story – with a group of individuals struggling towards the light in a generation of rebellion, war, famine, carnage and annihilation.Overview
