Based on the book by Bill O’Reilly and Martin Dugard, “Killing Jesus” stars Haaz Sleiman (“The Visitor”) in the title role, with Kelsey Grammer as King Herod the Great and “True Blood” alum Stephen Moyer as Pontius Pilate.
The special begins in the era of Jesus’ birth and chronicles his path as he spreads his message and amasses a following of devout believers. Eventually, through a mixture of “collusion, conspiracy and influence,” he is arrested and (spoiler alert) crucified.
