ABC is planning to broadcast a new mini-series version of The Ten Commandments in April, just days after its annual showing of Cecil B. DeMille's 1956 classic starring Charlton Heston as Moses. "We think it's a nice thing to run both," ABC Entertainment chief Steve McPherson told the Philadelphia Inquirer. Some people will watch one or the other, or both." But Robert Halmi, Sr., Chairman of Hallmark Entertainment, who produced the miniseries, told the newspaper, "It's probably overkill to run both, but I have nothing to do with that. The main thing is that mine is first. I am 100 percent sure. Mine is new, so it should be seen first." Not so, said a network spokesperson, Halmi's miniseries will air after DeMille's movie.
