Mark Burnett, producer of the History Channel's "The Bible" miniseries, which has skyrocketed to record-breaking ratings since its premiere on Sunday, said in a previous interview that "weird things happened during filming" of the show, and he believes "the hand of God" was helping to complete the series.
Diogo Morgado portrays Jesus Christ in Mark Burnett and Roma Downey's "Bible" series which will premiere on The History Channel on March 3, 2013.
Burnett's miniseries gained a whopping 14.8 million viewers for its season premiere on Sunday, making it the no. 1 cable television event of the year.
Before the series premiered, however, Burnett predicted the show's success in a recently published interview with Entertainment Weekly, saying that a number of strange incidences happened during filming which possibly pointed to divine intervention.
"It will be, over the next 40 or 50 years, the most watched thing that Roma and I have ever made," Burnett told EW in a January interview, referencing the production efforts put into the series by himself and his wife, Roma Downey of "Touched By An Angel."
"I really believe what I'm going to tell you right now. The hand of God was on this ... the edit came together perfectly, the actors came together perfectly, it just comes to life," Burnett continued.
Burnett went on to give several examples of strange incidences that happened on set, telling EW: "Weird things happened during filming."
