The on-a-roll production duo of Roma Downey and Mark Burnett are launching a new project in which they enlist female faith leaders of today to help tell the stories of some of the key women portrayed in the Bible.
Women of the Bible will examine the stories of Eve, Sarah, Rehab, Mary Magdalene and Mother Mary and feature interviews with Christine Caine and Priscilla Shirer, co-founders of Going Beyond Ministries; Victoria Osteen, co-pastor of Lakewood Church; Eva Rodriguez of the Latino Evangelical Women’s Association; Kay Warren, co-founder of Saddleback Church; and Bible teacher/best-selling author Joyce Meyer.
Women of the Bible is the latest in a stream of projects coming from Burnett and Downey since the two set the United Artists Media Group partnership with MGM and Hearst Corp. Downey is set to host a series for TLC next year revolving around stories from people who believe they witnessed real-life miracles, according to a report on deadline.com.
