After getting the green light back in December 2013, we haven't heard much about NBC's A.D. mini-series. Today, the network has released the trailer, offering our first look at this 12-hour program that serves as a follow-up to last year's The Bible. A.D. picks up where the smash hit, The Bible, left off, continuing the greatest story ever told and exploring the exciting and inspiring events that followed the Crucifixion of Christ.

As most of the world knows, the Crucifixion was only the beginning of the story. The immediate aftermath of Christ's death had a massive impact on his disciples, his mother Mary, and key political and religious leaders of the era, completely altering the entire world in an instant. Watch as the disciples struggle to survive and share their beliefs, guiding us from the sorrow of Christ's ultimate sacrifice to the awe-inspiring wonder of the Resurrection and beyond. From Executive Producers Roma Downey and Mark Burnett comes an uplifting spiritual journey through the later chapters of biblical history.

Check out the first footage from NBC's A.D., which is slated to debut on Easter Sunday, April 5, 2015. Stay tuned for more details, images and scenes from this highly-anticipated mini-series.
