Hallmark Looks to Crack Da Vinci Code

5/31/2006 6:36 AM Eastern

Hallmark Channel will present the U.S. television premiere of documentary Opus Dei and The Da Vinci Code Sunday from 10 p.m.-11 p.m. (EST/PST).

The network will air the documentary in association with Faith & Values Media.

Its producers were granted exclusive access to Opus Dei, the Catholic organization that plays a large role in the book and movie versions of The Da Vinci Code.

Examining the myths that circulate about Opus Dei, journalist and former monk Mark Dowd visits its centers around the world, including the group's $69 million New York headquarters, known as the “Tower of Power,” Hallmark said.

Opus Dei and The Da Vinci Code was produced by Canada’s CCTV and had its world premiere on Channel 4 in the United Kingdom.
