Another TV show based on the Bible is now in development. Queen Latifah has partnered with Fox and producer Holly Carter for a new series called The Scroll, which will be based on the Bible. From Deadline:
"The Scroll" will reimagine some of the Bible’s most popular stories in present day through a group of friends and colleagues that are modern-day versions of some of the Bible’s most notable characters.
The Bible has been a popular source for new TV projects since the breakout hit miniseries The Bible aired on History. CNN is getting ready to air its new season of the documentary series Finding Jesus (March 5), and CBS recently announced it was developing a sitcom about a modern-day guy who decides to live out the Bible has literally as possible in Living Biblically.

This week, 13-year-old Robert Irwin visited The Tonight Show (along with some of his cool animal friends), and he brought the same energy that made his late father Steve Irwin “The Crocodile Hunter” so beloved.
It’s pretty cool to watch. Here’s the clip: Discuss
The network CBS has ordered a pilot for a new sitcom called Living Biblically, that, literally, is about living exactly as the Bible mandates. The show—which is being produced by The Big Bang Theory’s Johnny Galecki—is based on the book A Year of Living Biblically, in which journalist A.J. Jacobs chronicles his life of following every command of the Bible “as literally as possible.” The show’s actually been in development for a few years.
You may remember, Jacobs was featured on the cover of RELEVANT at the time, where he detailed more of the story. Discuss
A trailer for the second season of CNN’s historical documentary series Finding Jesus has been released, and it looks like an interesting examination of Jesus’ life. The show focuses on the historical impact of His ministry, and even looks for forensic evidence of events referenced in the Gospels.
