Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) May 4, 2005 - Emmy Award-
winning producer Drew S. LevinÂs TMC Entertainment today announced completion of principal photography on the forthcoming PBS miniseries Walking the Bible based on the New York TimesÂ bestselling book by acclaimed author Bruce Feiler. Walking the Bible will be broadcast on PBS as a major primetime event later this year. KQED Public Television, the San Francisco PBS affiliate, has signed an agreement with TMC to be the presenting station.
Filmed on-location in high definition digital video throughout the Middle East, Walking the Bible is one part adventure story, one part archeological detective work, and one part spiritual exploration which describes author and host Bruce FeilerÂs 10,000-mile inspiring odyssey by foot, Jeep, rowboat, and camel through the greatest stories ever told. Viewers will travel to the forbidding and hostile environment of the Mesopotamian highlands, the Nile Delta, and the Sinai Desert to experience the travails of the patriarchs and the dangers of Exodus.
ÂWalking the Bible captures some of the most dramatic and extraordinary footage ever taken about the Bible,Â said Drew S. Levin, Executive Producer. ÂViewers will be awed by the beauty and imagery of this program as well as inspired by the truly unforgettable people and places visited. We have assembled one of the most talented groups of individuals to bring a truly monumental project to broadcast television.Â
Walking the Bible is executive produced by TMC EntertainmentÂs Drew S. Levin and his long-time associate, Jim Coane. Levin and Coane each won an Emmy for their critically acclaimed PBS series, Future Quest. Levin also assembled an impressive international production team which includes renowned British producer Rebecca Dobbs, best known for the BBC/PBS miniseries, Conquistadors and In the Footsteps of Alexander the Great and BAFTA award-winning director David Wallace (In Search of Shakespeare). Alex Gregory, a multiple Emmy Award winner (The Living Eden and The Secret Life of 118 Green Street), served as co-writer with Bruce Feiler on the miniseries.
