Tyler Perry built his career by creating musical productions and now he will use the same platform to help bring the last hours of Jesus Christ's life to the stage for "The Passion," which will air on FOX.
"I'm excited to host and narrate #ThePassionLive, a musical event that airs LIVE March 20 on FOX," the 46-year-old playwright, director, producer and actor tweeted.
The two-hour musical will take place in Perry's hometown of New Orleans, and bring a modern-day account of the story of Jesus of Nazareth, which will include famed biblical events like the Last Supper, his betrayal at the hands of Judas, his trial by Pontius Pilate, the crucifixion and resurrection.
