Oprah Winfrey hosts the Emmy-winning husband and wife team behind the History Channel hit The Bible Sunday night on her primetime show Oprah’s Next Chapter. One topic the pair will address is the controversy-sparking resemblance between Satan actor Mehdi Ouzaani and President Obama. “I honestly was horrified,” Downey tells Winfrey. “We love the President, we have nothing but respect for the President. We felt somehow hijacked.” And, on The Bible’s ratings coup: “We were delighted throughout the run of the series we saw various headlines — ‘God Beats Zombies’ — was my particular favorite”. The interview airs Sunday at 9 PM ET/PT on OWN.
