"I'm on location in Spain, shooting in high definition for the miniseries Secret Files of the Inquisition. This docudrama reveals true and untold stories about the Roman Catholic Church's centuries-long crusade against heretics, based on transcripts that have been locked away in the church's archives for as many as 600 years. Pope John Paul II granted access to these files in 1999 to create a millennium cleansing for the church. Now, an international crew has gathered to bring these stories to life. Broadcast to critical acclaim in Canada, the UK, Australia, and France, the series will have its American premiere on PBS in May. "
