A TV adaption of the story of the last hours of Jesus Christ's life on earth stars Michael W Smith and pop star Seal.

Fox's The Passion is a live TV show documenting the journey of Jesus of Nazareth from the Last Supper to his betrayal by Judas, trial by Pontius Pilate, conviction, crucifixion and resurrection.

Millions of people will tune into the American production which is narrated by Tyler Perry.

Fox said the story would "unfold live at some of New Orleans' most iconic locations, while featuring a procession of hundreds of people carrying a 20-foot, illuminated cross from Champion Square outside the Superdome to the live stage at Woldenburg Park on the banks of the Mississippi River".

The programme will be available in the UK on streaming website Netflix shortly after being broadcast in the US.

Jencarlos Canela stars as Jesus, Chris Daughtry takes on the role of Judas, Prince Royce is Peter, Seal plays Pontius Pilate, Trisha Yearwood is the part of the Virgin Mary and Michael W. Smith is one of Jesus' disciples.

The show will feature a number of contemporary songs and live music.
