LOS ANGELES, April 2, 2004—Jody Eldred Productions today announced it has just completed filming and is in the final stages of production on an inspirational documentary called, “Changed Lives: Miracles of The Passion,” which will air nationwide Easter weekend.

With rave reviews from Diane Sawyer on ABC’s “Good Morning America” and Joe Scarborough on MSNBC’s “Scarborough Country,” this one-hour T.V. special was shot in High Definition and documents the true stories of people whose lives have been forever changed by Mel Gibson’s incredible motion picture “The Passion of The Christ.”

“I knew instantly that people’s lives were going to be radically changed by the “The Passion,” said Jody Eldred, award-winning Executive Producer, Director and Writer of the show, “and there was no question in my mind that these stories—these miracles—needed to be shared with the public.”

In their own words, the people interviewed for the special tell stories of relationships restored, rescues from addiction, diseases healed, lives saved from the brink of death, and even a confession to murder. “It’s unprecedented!“ says Eldred, “God is using the film as a catalyst to bring healing, reconciliation, and peace to people across the nation and around the globe. These are profoundly inspirational messages of hope everyone needs to hear, especially at Easter time.”

Discussions with major cable and network channels are still underway, and an airdate for “Changed Lives: Miracles of The Passion” will be announced soon. For more information, please see
