​Channel 9 is to screen two episodes as its premiere of the 10-part docu-drama series The Bible from 9pm on Tuesday 16 July.

The series, from Survivor producer Mark Burnett, attracted more than 100 million viewers on cable television in the United States.

Mr Mark Reddy, the CEO of Christian Media Australia, urged Christians to watch the series to ensure its ratings success.

“We believe The Bible series is a significant opportunity to get the gospel out in Australia and we therefore need to get behind it and make the first night screening a success,” Mr Reddy said.

“We want to encourage every Christian in Australia to get behind the series and show Channel 9 that the Christian audience has a strong voice in this country.  As Christian leaders in our community we need to do all that we can to get behind this great series, and make a significant mark on the ratings.”
