ABC might still go ahead with the planned Holocaust miniseries that it dumped earlier this month in light of actor Mel Gibson's anti-Semitic remarks. The series, based on the memoir of Dutch Jew Flory Van Beek, was originally helmed by Gibson's production company, Icon, but ABC abandoned the project amidst the media storm that surrounded Gibson's controversial comments made during a July 6 arrest for drunk driving. But ABC is still interested in the miniseries and might give it the green-light under another production company, TV Guide reports.

Should ABC run Mel Gibson`s mini-series about the Holocaust, even after his meltdown and anti-Semitic remarks recently?

Is it his opinion on how the holocaust never happened?

Sure. Everyone makes mistakes, he apologized for his remarks, time to forgive and forget.

No, what's he doing making a series about the holocaust anyway?

It can air but I'll make a point to not watch it.
I never liked that dude anyway.

I don't think so. Even if Gibson is truly contrite, his anti-semitic meltdown is still too fresh in the public's mind.

What is he even doing making a series about the Holocaust?

First he makes a movie about being Jesus and now he wants to make a series about the Holocaust. I think he needs to get over himself, because number 1 hes not that great, and number 2 this new series could be offending just as much the Passion of the Christ was.

I think it should air.
