When it comes to a show exploring the religions of the world, who better to host than the man who played God himself?

Morgan Freeman’s new National Geographic docuseries The Story of God will premiere April 3 at 9 p.m. ET. Each episode will follow the actor as he discovers the religious experiences and rituals in different parts of the world, traveling to places like Vatican City, Jerusalem, Egypt, Guatemala, and Texas.

“I have always been fascinated by God,” Freeman says. “It’s my quest to understand human faith and discover how our beliefs connect us all in one epic story.” The actor previously played God in Bruce Almighty and its sequel, Evan Almighty.

Watch the trailer below to catch a glimpse of Freeman’s journey.
