"A.D." (TV miniseries), formerly known as both "A.D.: After the Bible" and "A.D.: Beyond the Bible," on NBC is a 12-hour project from award-winning executive producer Mark Burnett ("The Voice," "Celebrity Apprentice") and his wife, Roma Downey, that is a follow-up to History Channel's popular ten-part miniseries "The Bible."

"A.D." begins in the dark days after Jesus' betrayal and death. A perfect storm brews in the Holy Land, fueled by social injustice, Roman military oppression and religious unrest. High priests and the Herod dynasty vie for power. Zealot revolutionaries turn to violence to regain what they believe is their promised land. And in the face of terrible odds and brutal persecution, the small band of Jesus' disciples stand against the combined might of Rome and their own local authorities. In a generation of rebellion, war, famine, and carnage, who can they trust? Who should they fear? Will tomorrow bring a violent death? For many, it does ... but others survive, and as the storm around them breaks, the fate of Israel, of Rome and of their faith is decided.

NBC's "A.D." is executive produced by "The Bible" team of Roma Downey, Mark Burnett and Richard Bedser. It is a co-production between LightWorkers Media, Hearst Productions and Universal Television. The writer is Simon Block, who is two-time BAFTA-nominated for the TV movie "The Shooting of Thomas Hurndall."
