Skinner and Susan Easton Black are the series' coexecutive producers.
"Joseph" focuses on parts of Joseph Smith's life that have a lasting
impact on members of the Church two centuries later.

"Hopefully viewers will take away an understanding that Joseph lived
an incredible life," said Susan Easton Black, also host of the series.
"It's a wonderful story that needs to be told again and again."
