History has greenlighted The Bible, a five-part, 10-hour docudrama series from Survivor executive producer Mark Burnett to air in 2013.

It is set to film on location and will combine live action and state-of-the-art CGI. “This series will bring the historical stories of The Bible to life for a new generation,” History president and general manager Nancy Dubuc said. Burnett, who said he had been working on the project for the past two years, is executive producing the series with his wife, former Touched By an Angel star Roma Downey, and Richard Bedser.
