Levin said that principal photography is to begin on December 23, 2009 in Bethlehem and Jerusalem and will include footage of some Christianity’s holiest sites, including the Church of the Nativity which marks the spot where Jesus was born and the Cenacle or Upper Room, site of the Last Supper and other epochal events in the history of the Faith.  All production will be in 1080P HD and the series will be shot throughout the Middle East and also in France, Italy and Greece.  

The series will be presented by Jonathan Phillips who has been appeared prominently in numerous documentaries including Christianity: A History for UK Channel 4 and The Crusades: Crescent and the Cross for History Channel.

Veteran director Hector Galán will helm the entire 8 hour series and will Executive Produce along with Levin.  Galán’s most recent credits include the acclaimed feature film Los Lonely Boys:  Cottonfields and Crossroads, the popular PBS series Visiones and History Channel’s Cinco de Mayo.
