"Ten Commandments" is a ten-part scripted event series on WGN America from The Weinstein Company (TWC). Over 10 nights, 10 different visionary filmmakers will take on a single Commandment with their modern interpretation of that Commandment. Five of the 10 filmmakers committed to direct episodes are Gus Van Sant, Lee Daniels, Jim Sheridan, Wes Craven and Michael Cera.

Michael Cera ("Scott Pilgrim vs. the World," "Juno"), best known for his acting, has been nominated for several Critics Choice, SAG, MTV, and BAFTA Awards, among others, and was a writer/producer on "Arrested Development;" Wes Craven ("Scream," "A Nightmare on Elm Street") won the Lifetime Achievement Award at the NYC Horror Film Festival last year; Lee Daniels received two Oscar nominations for "Precious" and his cast was nominated for a SAG Ensemble Award for "Lee Daniels' The Butler;" Jim Sheridan ("In the Name of the Father," "In America") is a six-time Oscar nominee and Gus Van Sant is the twice Oscar-nominated director of "Milk" and "Good Will Hunting."

Academy Award winning producer Bruce Cohen ("American Beauty," "Silver Linings Playbook") and Bob Weinstein will produce "Ten Commandments."
