Discovery+ is gearing up for the release of the new faith-based film “Resurrection” from “The Bible” Producers Roma Downey and Mark Burnett.
The MGM and LightWorkers production, which takes place immediately after the crucifixion of Jesus, will debut on March 27.
According to the synopsis of “Resurrection,” which follows the record-breaking mini-series “The Bible,” the movie focuses on Jesus’ followers who are now “hunted, leaderless and desperately searching for understanding, but when Jesus rises from death, they realize that hope didn’t die on the cross. It lives on in them.”
“Faithful audiences crave content that speaks to their faith and values, and we can think of no better home for this film than discovery+,” Downey and Burnett said in a statement shared with CP. “David Zaslav and his team have created an incredible home for family friendly entertainment.”
“We look forward to sharing ‘Resurrection’s’ ultimate story of hope with the discovery+ viewers and are grateful to be able to share this epic story with families just in time for the Easter season.”
