After the unexpected success of History Channel’s miniseries ‘The Bible’ earlier this year, the network has a new show in the works about Jesus’ so-called ‘lost years.’
Deadline.com exclusively reported Tuesday that the project is being produced by Eli Roth and Eric Newman, veterans of the horror genre, with Scott Kosar as the writer.
History Channel’s ‘The Lost Years’ will shed light on Jesus of Nazareth’s life between the ages of 13 and 30 – a period of time the New Testament largely does not cover.
In the gospels, Jesus reappears on the scene as a grown man nearly 17 years after his pilgrimage to Jerusalem with his parents.
He is then baptized in the River Jordan by John the Baptist and goes on to gather a group of disciples who follow him to Jerusalem, where his ministry presumably ends in crucifixion and subsequent resurrection.
The cable network’s new series is based on an original idea by Kosar, whose credits include The Machinist with Christian Bale and the 2010 horror flick The Crazies.
