In 2016, on Palm Sunday, a Christian media mogul is teaming up with FOX to celebrate the life of Jesus Christ

Fox is going after a Christian audience for the upcoming Easter season.
The network will air “The Passion,” a live musical event, on Palm Sunday, with Tyler Perry as host and narrator of the two-hour special depicting the final hours of Jesus Christ’s life on earth.

Viewers will see Jesus at the Last Supper, being betrayed by Judas, on trial before Pontius Pilate, His conviction, crucifixion and finally, the resurrection.

Though traditionally themed elements will be included, Fox’s version will add a twist to the classic story.

The setting of “The Passion” is modern-day New Orleans, Perry’s actual hometown. According to Variety, the action will take place live at some of the Crescent City’s most iconic locations. A 20-foot illuminated cross will be carried by a procession of hundreds of people from Champion Square outside the Superdome to the live stage at Woldenburg Park.
