What is the latest in Roma Downey and Mark Burnett projects? Burnett, has six television series in the U.S. His Bible mini-series with his wife, Roma Downey, has been extremely popular and successful.

"There really aren't any rules," says Burnett. "Someone once said, 'Nobody knows anything,' and I think that's so true. People said to us, 'Nobody's going to watch the Bible on primetime television,' and those same people were so shocked when millions of people tuned in. But we weren't surprised."

The series has earned three Emmy nominations and has been the top-selling miniseries of all time on DVD and Blu-ray. It has been so successful that Downey and Burnett are working on a sequel for NBC. It is entitled A.D.: Beyond the Bible for NBC. Further, they are producing the movie, Son of God, which will center on Jesus' story. It will use content from the miniseries and some extra scenes.

Fox is scheduled to release the movie, Son God, Feb. 28. "It's been great for us to be able to do this together. Most people can't even work on the yard together and still be best friends," says Downey. "It's been quite a journey."
