This is just a quick update to let you all know that I recently interviewed Rodrigo García, the director of 'Last Days in the Desert.' Fun factoid: he is the son of Gabriel García Márquez, the Nobel prize-winning author of "Love in the Time of Cholera" and "One Hundred Years of Solitude." Rodrigo's new film starring Ewan McGregor, which tells an imagined chapter during Jesus' 40 days in the wilderness, is a stunning cinematic experience. It's certainly the most beautiful desert photography I've ever seen.
The National Geographic Channel’s new mini-series, called The Story of God, starring actor Morgan Freeman, premiers Sunday, April 3, 9/8c. Morgan Freeman and the crew who traveled with him, including producer James Younger, wanted to dive headfirst into the various religions found on earth (including Christianity) and try to put themselves in the shoes of other people. I had the chance to speak with James about the mini-series, and we had an interesting chat about Jesus and what “The Story of God” is aiming for in its globetrotting exploration of religion.
The film "Saints & Strangers," which airs on National Geographic in two parts beginning Sunday, Nov. 22 9/8c, tells the true faith-themed story behind Thanksgiving, and it features actors like Ron Livingston ("Office Space"), Anna Camp ("The Help"), and Raoul Truillo ("Apocalypto"). Now, in my latest podcast episode, you can listen to my audio from the red carpet as if you were there by my side at the world premiere in Beverly Hills.
