Tyler Perry will be producing a 2-hour live special called ‘The Passion’ that reenacts the crucifixion of Christ live on TV.
Before we wave the #WTF flag, here are the details:
‘The Passion’ will follow a modern day Jesus of Nazareth as he carries his illuminated cross from Championship square outside the Superdome in New Orleans to the live stage at Woldenburg Park on the banks of the MIssissippi River, Deadline reports.
Tyler Perry will be spearheading the musical which is set to air March 20th at 8pm the week before Easter.
Fox Entertainment president David Madden said of the event:
“The Passion is both wonderfully entertaining and genuinely inspirational,” said Fox Entertainment president David Madden. “Tyler Perry is the perfect host to lead the cast – and viewers – through the streets of New Orleans in this contemporary re-telling of a timeless story.”
This sounds like an episode of Boondocks.
