What’s On TV?: Tune In For The Premiere Of ‘Noah’s Ark,’ a Television Event Movie

by Sandi Berg

NoahsArkThis new original movie is a poignant, new retelling of the classic bible story and it stars David Threlfall (Shameless) and Joanne Whalley (PBS’ upcoming Wolf Hall).

It is a timeless tale of Noah, a farmer and family man, is instructed by an angel to build an ark in the middle of a desert in order to save both his family and the faithful from a devastating flood. A seemingly impossible task, especially when his sons refuse to believe him and help, Noah risks ridicule and humiliation from the degenerate townsfolk as well as his loving but exasperated family, in his quest to carry out his God-given task.

Co-produced with the BBC, “Noah’s Ark” is a timeless tale; a story of family and faith; about one man’s belief and fixation with building the ark which will ultimately save his family and mankind. It is an obsession which leads to the fragmentation of his family, a test of their faith in their father and their father’s faith in God and everything he believes in.
