The hit television series is now available on DVD.

“Audiences embraced The Bible in numbers and with passion we never could have anticipated,” producers Roma Downey and Mark Burnett said the morning after the finale aired on Easter. “What a great statement for American television viewers to make for the last five weeks:  More than 100 million of them chose stories of God’s deep and sacrificial love for all of us over anything else on cable or broadcast networks. It proves once again why the Bible is called the greatest story ever told.”

Featuring hours of never before seen behind-the-scenes footage and making-of featurettes in a stunning high bit rate HD transfer and immersive 5.1 audio, the Blu-ray and DVD exclusively feature an all-new cut of the miniseries.

Narrated by Emmy winning actor Keith David, The Bible features an international cast including Portuguese actor, Diogo Morgado as Jesus Christ and producr Roma Downey as Mother Mary.  And for the first time since their award winning collaboration on Gladiator, Oscar and Grammy-winning composer Hans Zimmer reunites with acclaimed vocalist Lisa Gerrard to create the musical backdrop for this epic production.

The four-disc Blu-ray and DVD set dives deeper into the making of the series and features a behind-the-scenes look at how the groundbreaking docudrama came together.  Interviews with producers, directors, and cast illustrate creative collaboration on-set and off and show how the remarkable Moroccan scenery was transformed into the world of the Bible.
