LOS ANGELES, Dec. 21 /Christian Newswire/ -- The box office hit "One Night With The King" will make its television broadcast premier on Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN), the world's largest religious network and America's most-watched faith channel, Sunday, December 31st at 7pm, 9pm and 11pm Pacific Standard Time.
"One Night with the King (Gener8Xion Entertainment) is the perfect film to ring in the New Year and we are thrilled that this epic motion picture is making its television broadcast premier on TBN," says Paul Crouch, Jr., TBN's Vice President of Administration. "The film is based on the book of Esther and commemorates that historical time when the Jewish people living in Persia were saved from extermination at the hands of its arch enemy, while bringing to life the story of Esther's courage and faith on behalf of God's people."
One Night With The King stars two of Hollywood's most legendary living icons, Peter O'Toole and Omar Sharif, along with the renowned John Rhys-Davies (Lord of the Rings trilogy), Luke Goss (Blade II, ZigZag), John Noble (Lord of the Rings: Return of the King), Tommy 'Tiny' Lister (Next Friday), James Callis (Bridget Jones Diary, Battlestar Galactica), Jonah Lotan (24, The Jacket) and Hollywood newcomer Tiffany Dupont.
Drawn from the best-selling novel "Hadassah: One Night With The King" by Tommy Tenney and Mark Andrew Olsen, this dramatic film chronicles a young woman's rise from peasant to princess, her courageous role in the redemption of her people from destruction and death, and her winning of the love of the most powerful man in the kingdom -- by seeking his heart rather than the riches of his kingdom.
Crouch noted that TBN is the undisputed leader in producing and airing quality inspirational programming, including the best in faith-based and family-friendly movies. "TBN partnered with Gener8Xion Entertainment to produce this moving and powerful motion picture based on one of the Old Testament's most beloved characters," Crouch said. "One Night with the King" is a deeply moving story that proves that anyone, no matter their circumstances, can rise to greatness when guided by the hand of destiny."
