The series was initially co-produced by Uplifting Entertainment and Cornerstone Television; when the series debuted, it was one of the first regularly scheduled religious television series to be produced in High Definition. However, to achieve this notoriety, Cornerstone added more infomercials to its schedule and cancelled some of its other programs in order to defray the cost of two HDTV cameras bought for the show.[2] In addition, following the lead of many American series (especially dramas), production would later shift to Canada; the show's second season was filmed in Orangeville, Ontario.[3]
