Portuguese actor Diogo Morgado stunningly portrays Jesus Christ and beloved Irish actress Roma Downey stars as Mother Mary.
British Directors Christopher Spencer, Crispin Reese and Tony Mitchell expertly craft the series, alongside cinematographer Christopher Titus King. And for the first time since their award winning collaboration on Gladiator, Oscar® and Grammy® winning composer Hans Zimmer reunites with acclaimed vocalist Lisa Gerrard to create the majestic musical backdrop for this epic production.
