Breaking the Da Vinci Code to air on SciFi Channel

From an e-mail I just received:

Loveland, CO May 10, 2006 - Grizzly Adams® Productions, Inc. (GAP), producers of family friendly network television shows, announced that the SciFi Channel will air GAP’s Cracking Da Vinci’s Code program examining Dan Brown’s controversial novel, The Da Vinci Code. The SciFi Channel, owned by NBC Universal, will broadcast the two-hour DaVinci special, as a world premiere during prime time on May 18.

The broadcast of this program is timed to coincide with the release of the Sony Pictures major theatrical movie The Da Vinci Code on May 19. The Ron Howard directed film, from Columbia Pictures and Imagine Entertainment, stars Tom Hanks and Audrey Tautou. GAP’s Cracking Da Vinci's Code, based on the best-selling book of the same title by Dr. James Garlow and Dr. Peter Jones (Cook Communications), will examine the facts and the fiction behind Dan Brown's best-selling novel. A variety of church groups, and even Opus Dei, a Catholic organization portrayed as a sinister group in Brown’s book, are asking that the Columbia Pictures movie include a disclaimer that the show contains fictional elements.

I think that the title of the program is actually Breaking the Da Vinci Code which is described on the GAP website as follows:

The best-selling fiction thriller The Da Vinci Code ignited a world-wide controversy with this opening statement - “FACT: All descriptions of artwork, architecture, documents and secret rituals in the novel are accurate.” But everyone wants to know – is the novel really fact or fiction? Was Jesus really married to Mary Magdalene? Was she one of his disciples? Did they have a child together that became France’s royal bloodline? Did Leonardo try to warn us through his The Last Supper painting? Find out the answers!

Based on three best-selling books—Breaking the Da Vinci Code, The Da Vinci Deception and Cracking Da Vinci’s Code – this DVD answers all the lingering questions and sets the record straight.
