Quaid said in an interview with The Christian Post, "I was drawn to this project not just because of its intriguing concept but also the way it deeply connects the universal human experience of faith and belief systems. This series is a unique opportunity for me to reinvest my religious interests and investigate the rich history of these holy marvels and the importance they hold for people around the globe."

Viewers of the show will get a mix of historians' insight, as well as authors and professors of archeology and religious studies weighing in on the events and the impact across different cultures and religions.

"It's been said that seeing is believing," the actor said in a promo for the series. "So it makes sense that when some of life's biggest questions are believed to have left behind physical clues, we want to go see for ourselves. Noah's Ark, the Holy Grail, the Ark of the Covenant, join me as we explore the facts behind some of history's greatest leaps of faith."

Eli Lehrer, executive vice president and head of programming for The History Channel, is excited to have Quaid a part of the project. "His connection to the subject matter adds a layer of depth and intrigue to these thought-provoking narratives of diverse spiritual practices and captivating religious experiences that will resonate with viewers," he said
