I’m pleased to announce that a new documentary series will begin airing on History beginning Monday, November 11, 2013 at 10:00pm / 9:00 Central.
The series is entitled, Bible Secrets Revealed, and is produced by Prometheus Entertainment for the History channel.
The titles of the six episodes and their schedule of appearance are as follows:
“Lost in Translation” – November 11, 2013
“The Promised Land” – November 18, 2013
“The Forbidden Scriptures” – November 25, 2013
“The Real Jesus” – December 2, 2013
“Mysterious Prophecies” – December 16, 2013
“Sex and the Bible” – December 23, 2013
The documentary features dozens of the world’s top biblical scholars, religious studies scholars, archaeologists, and historians, who offer different points of view while addressing some of the more difficult readings in the biblical and extra-biblical texts.
It is also worth note that portions of the documentary were filmed on site during the 2013 season of archaeological excavation at Tel Azekah.There is a 30 second trailer available here:

I have not yet seen this myself, though I was interviewed for the programme last summer here in North Carolina. It looks like we will also see James McGrath and Robert Cargill (who was also a consultant) among many others.
Update (4.29pm): Robert Cargill provides a list of some of the scholars who will be appearing in the series.
