All episodes of “The Dovekeepers” were made available prior to broadcast.
Throwing its shawl into the Biblical recreation ring, CBS’s two-night miniseries The Dovekeepers looks to take the dry bedrock of history and chisel it into well-sculpted TV drama. It’s not the only recent attempt. With the help of reality show guru Mark Burnett and executive producer Roma Downey, History Channel’s good book adaptation The Bible received great ratings back in 2013. When the network tried to recapture that magic earlier this year with Sons of Liberty, a hunked up “interpretation” of the revolutionary war, the payoff was nowhere near as divine.
CBS is looking to court Bible fans and ratings with The Dovekeepers, an antiquity story shepherded to the network by Burnett and Downey. Based on Alice Hoffman’s historical fiction of the same name, The Dovekeepers has everything you’ve come to expect from the hormonal »

It wasn't all that long ago -- just back in 2010 -- when the world became enraptured by the plight of 33 Chilean miners who became trapped in a 121-year-old San José copper-gold mine for 69 days. After its conclusion, the story seemed naturally made for film. There were many heroes involved in keeping the miners alive and in the rescue, leading to an almost unbelievably triumphant happy ending to what began as pure horror. The 33, directed by Mexican filmmaker Patricia Riggen (Under the Same Moon) and written by Mikko Alanne (5 Days of War) and Jose Rivera (The Motorcycle Diaries), details the events of the mine collapse, the plight and survival of the 33 men who were trapped 2,300 feet underground and 3 miles from the mine's only entrance, and the government's role in stepping in to devise a plan to free them. James Horner also created the sweeping score. From the trailer, the film »

The Collider Weekly TV Guide is a rundown of notable episodes, premieres, returns, finales, and opportunities to catch up on great shows (or cast an eye to the occasional TV train wreck). Here are the picks for the week beginning Monday, March 30th: Monday, 3/30: Better Call Saul, "Pimento" (AMC, 10 p.m.) -- The penultimate episode of Season One will answer (maybe) whether or not Chuck (Michael McKean) is cured, and also what the status is of the class action lawsuit he and Jimmy (Bob Odenkirk) levied against Sandpiper Crossing. Further, Mike's (Jonathan Banks) ability to finish a job is called into question … but don't they know he doesn't do half measures? Tuesday, 3/31: [caption id="attachment_136915" align="alignright" width="350"] Image via TBS[/caption] Cougar Town Series Finale, "Mary Jane's Last Dance" (TBS, 10:30 p.m.) -- The sixth season finale (and the third on the show's second home of TBS) will also be the »

Designed to play as a moving adaptation of Alice Hoffman’s bestseller, “The Dovekeepers” is more of a wounded duck. Similar in tone to Lifetime’s “The Red Tent” by entering into such a story from a female perspective, the entire first half of this two-part miniseries essentially feels like an extended preamble to night two, which closes on a sobering note but proves dramatically flaccid until then. Producers Mark Burnett and Roma Downey have made a splashy migration into scripted epics with “The Bible” and NBC’s sequel “A.D.,” but anyone who can endure this with their wits is a true survivor.
Granted, it’s been a generation since the 1981 miniseries “Masada,” but assuming it’s available somewhere, going back and watching that splendid pairing of Peter O’Toole and Peter Strauss is an infinitely preferable prospect.
As is, “Dovekeepers” should be most notable to fans of “NCIS »

Debuting just before Passover starts this year, The Dovekeepers is not the only story of faith from the First Century A.D. to show up on network television in the next week or so, and it certainly isn't the best. As the video review above says, this epic two-night tale of the siege of Masada – starring Cote De Pablo – by Rome’s bloodthirsty legions proves that big is not always better on the small screen. Based on the best-selling Alice Hoffman novel of the same name and… »
The Dovekeepers — the newest TV event from Roma Downey and Mark Burnett under their LightWorkers Media banner — is based on a bloody chapter of human history. But, says Downey, the tale’s true foundation is love and the resilience of the human spirit. “We’re most interested in telling stories that find light in the darkness,” she explained at a recent press event. “Dovekeepers is really a love story … a love story in the face of this incredible tragedy.” Inspired by Alice Hoffman’s heralded 2011 bestseller, The Dovekeepers tells the intertwined tales of mistreated beauty Yael (Rachel Brosnahan), mystical Shirah (Cote … Continue reading →

There's a one-of-a-kind TV event coming to CBS, and you won't want to miss it.
Mark Burnett and Roma Downey (The Bible) are once again combining their brilliance as executive producers of the new four-hour limited series The Dovekeepers – and only ETonline has your exclusive behind-the-scenes first look.
In our sneak peek video above, Burnett and Downey are on location in Malta and they reveal how they were able to devise the look and feel of the first-century Seige of Masada, along with the goals, research, challenges that came along with creating The Dovekeepers.
Based on Alice Hoffman’s bestselling historical novel, The Dovekeepers centers on a group of extraordinary women whose lives intersect in a fight for survival at the siege of Masada. The project stars Cote de Pablo (NCIS), Rachel Brosnahan (House of Cards) and Kathryn Prescott (Finding Carter) in the title dovekeeper roles.
It doesn’t require a “spoiler alert” warning to say that almost nothing happens on this week’s installment of The Good Wife.
And yet, if the seeds randomly scattered over the course of the hour take root, it could be the start of everything that’s to come in the complicated, mixed-up, ethically murky life of Alicia Florrick — political candidate, power spouse, occasional trial attorney and most certainly a woman in denial about her mourning over the tragic death of her lover Will Gardner.

After being forced out of their homes in Jerusalem by the Romans in 70 C.E., 900 Jews were ensconced in a fortress at Masada, a mountain in the Judean desert. Based on Alice Hoffman’s bestselling historical novel and airing Tuesday, March 31 and Wednesday, April 1 on CBS, The Dovekeepers presents »
Not so long ago, the Easter holiday, as far as mainstream TV networks were concerned, was defined by ABC’s annual airing of Cecil B. DeMille’s 1956 epic “The Ten Commandments.” Local stations might cue up the Fred Astaire-Judy Garland chestnut “Easter Parade.”
But the success of History’s “The Bible” miniseries in 2013 has spurred networks to take a second look at Holy Week leading into Easter as a showcase for event programming. National Geographic Channel has set March 29, Palm Sunday, as the premiere date for “Killing Jesus,” the latest in the series of telepics based on historical novels by Bill O’Reilly and Martin Dugard.
CBS is airing miniseries “The Dovekeepers,” set in biblical times, over four hours on March 31 and April 1. And NBC is launching its 12-hour “A.D: The Bible Continues” series on Easter Sunday, April 5. Both “Dovekeepers” and “A.D.” hail from the producers behind “The Bible, »

News: Why NCIS is the No. 1 Show in the World
The four-hour series event, airing March 31 and April 1, is based on Alice Hoffman's historical novel about the Siege of Masada in 70 C.E. where 900 Jews stood their ground against Roman armies after being forced out of their home in Jerusalem and ensconced in a fortress at a mountain in the Judean desert. The project will recount the events from the perspective of a few extraordinary women with different backstories who share a common bond for survival. Cote plays Shirah, a healer accused of practicing witchcraft.
The 35-year-old actress was in full wardrobe as she gave a tour of the set in Malta and spilled details on the show.
