Downey, Burnett to make TLC series on divine interventions
Jun. 11, 2015
NEW YORK (AP) — The spiritual franchise of the husband-and-wife television team of Roma Downey and Mark Burnett is expanding into reality television.
The TLC network said Thursday that it will air their new series, "Answered Prayers," starting next month. It will feature stories of people in life-threatening situations who have experienced moments they regard as divine intervention.
The first episode on July 26 features an Indiana woman who said she heard the voice of God telling her to protect her family from a storm, moments before a tornado struck.
Downey, the "Touched by an Angel" star, and Burnett, executive producer of "Survivor" and "The Voice," made the miniseries "The Bible" and "AD" together.
