*CBS will premiere ‘DOVEKEEPERS’, the 4-hour Mini-series, from the executive producers Mark Burnett and Roma Downey on March 31 and April 1 at 9 PM/8c.
*ABC will most likely have Charlton Heston as Moses in ‘THE TEN COMMANDMENTS’, around Easter, since they have shown it annually since 1973. No confirmed time has been given, yet, for this film, or the sweet Peanuts Gang cartoon, ‘IT’S THE EASTER BEAGLE, CHARLIE BROWN’. I will update here, if and when times are released.
*TBN will have many Biblical Movies during the Easter Season, including ‘JESUS OF NAZARETH’ and the box office hit ‘THE PASSION OF THE CHRIST’. Both films detail the life, final hours, and crucifixion of Jesus Christ.
*TCM will also have many Biblical Movies on Easter day, April 5, 2015, including ‘KING OF KINGS’ at 1:30 PM/12:30c., and ‘THE GREATEST STORY EVER TOLD’ at 4:30 PM/3:30c. In Primetime, get out your Easter bonnet, because TCM will have not one, but two classic Easter Musicals, ‘EASTER PARADE’, starring Fred Astaire and Judy Garland at 8 PM/7c., and a rare TCM showing of the sensational ‘HOLIDAY INN’ at 10 PM/9c., starring Bing Crosby and Fred Astaire, which features and celebrates every holiday with song and dance!
