It was "an extraordinary moment," said filmmaker Roma Downey of a cross just appearing in a blue sky over Morocco as a crew was filming "A.D. The Bible Continues." The TV series begins Easter night on 12 News.
"A.D." continues where the mega-popular "The Bible" series left off. Downey and her husband, Hollywood producer Mark Burnett ("The Voice" and "Shark Tank"), are co-producers of the new series.
Their original "The Bible" drew millions of viewers around the country,.
"A cloud showed up in the perfect shape of a cross," and everyone started taking out their iPhones and snapping pictures on the filming location, Downey said.
They couldn't help but think that it was a "blessing of God for the project we're doing," said Downey.
