Capitalizing on the success of the History Channel series The Bible and the movie Son of God, producers Mark Burnett and Roma Downey created A.D.: The Bible Continues.

Set to debut on Easter Sunday, the miniseries follows the events of the biblical book of Acts where the Christian church must contend with persecution while trying to spread the word of Jesus Christ. The premiere will air April 5 on NBC at 9 p.m.

StumbleUpon

StumbleUpon is a mobile app that lets users discover new things online quickly. Launched as a website in 2001, the app finds photos, videos and articles tailored to your interests. Its ability to find things you might be interested in with the tap of a button makes it an underdog among other discovery apps like Tumblr or Pinterest.

The free app is available from the Apple App Store, Microsoft and Google Play stores.

Live at Madison Square Garden

Netflix added comedian Aziz Ansari’s fourth comedy special, Live from Madison Square Garden, in March.

Ansari’s brand of observational comedy peppered with social commentary borders on absurd.

He invites audience members to let him read their texts, and does a hardly relevant yet incredibly amusing Ja Rule impersonation. Ansari draws laughter from his undeniable likeability and fearless delivery.
