Mark Burnett brings 'The Bible' to the History channel

May 24, 2011 |  8:23 am

Bible Behold, the man who brought you "Survivor," "The Voice," and "Are You Smarter than a Fifth Grader?" has found religion: executive producer Mark Burnett is bringing the new docudrama "The Bible" to the History channel, the network announced Tuesday. The five-part, 10-hour series will cover the Good Book from Genesis to Revelation, using CGI to re-create famous stories including Noah's Ark and the Resurrection of Jesus. Also, he'll pit the Bible's most famous characters against each other to see who can walk on water faster and who can sing Lady Gaga songs best.

Only kidding about that last part. But maybe it's no coincidence that so many "Survivor" contestants claimed to have Jesus watching over them this season. We're pretty sure Jesus is more of a "Voice" fan, but we'd love to see Jeff Probst snuff out Sodom and Gomorrah's torch, declaring, "Your tribe has spoken."
