A.D. will be a 12-part miniseries and will likely premiere in spring 2015. "Last year when Mark Burnett was launching The Bible on cable, I told him, without hesitation, that if he wanted to tell more of the story, we'd love to do it at NBC," NBC chairman Robert Greenblatt said in a statement. "We are firmly in the 'event' business and nothing has more event potential than A.D. as it continues immediately after the The Bible ended."
A.D. will be written by Simon Block (The Shooting of Thomas Hurndall).
NBC just picked a four-hour miniseries adaptation of Rosemary's Baby last week. Burnett and his wife and producing partner Downey are also working on a second miniseries, The Dovekeepers, for CBS.
