Inspired by The Bible
Coming to Blu-ray, DVD & DHD April 2nd
In 1994, Roma Downey charmed audiences as Monica, the angel with a lot to learn, on CBS’s Touched by an Angel, and now, she is producing and starring in The Bible. Her husband, Mark Burnett, has made a name for himself as a successful television producer. Here, we will examine this creative duo’s career path and the different projects they are both involved with.
From Executive Producers Mark Burnett (The Voice, Survivor) and Roma Downey (Touched by an Angel) comes The Bible — an epic 10-hour miniseries, coming to Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD April 2 from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. Breathtaking in scope and scale, THE BIBLE features powerful performances, exotic locales and dazzling visual effects that breathe spectacular life into the dramatic tales of faith and courage from Genesis through Revelation.
Touched by an Angel
Roma’s best-known role was in Touched by an Angel. In the series that ran from 1994-2003 audiences got to know Monica, Tess, and Andrew, a trio of angels sent to earth to tell depressed and troubled people that God loves them and God hasn't forgotten them.
Roma’s next notable role was in The Division, in which she starred in three episodes as Reagan Gilancy. The Division ran from 2001-2004 and followed five female cops in San Francisco as they struggled with their personal and professional lives.
Throughout her acting career Downey also executive produced TV movies such as Breach of Trust, Second Honeymoon and The Survivor’s Club. Downey’s last work as an executive producer before The Bible was in 2004 when she worked on Funky Monkey.
Burnett made his producing name with Survivor, a reality show where a group of contestants are stranded in a remote location with little more than the clothes on their back. The lone survivor of this contest takes home a million dollars.
Are You Smarter than a 5th Grader?
Burnett’s career as a producer ramped up after 2007 when he began working on Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader? Burnett executive produced 70 episodes of the quiz show, which ran until 2010 and featured adult contestants and questions directly from the textbooks of first through fifth graders.
In 2011-2012 Burnett executive produced 16 episodes of the series The Voice. In this show, four famous musicians including Adam Levine and Christina Aguilera search for the best voices in America and mentor these singers to become artists. America decides which singer is worthy of the grand prize.
MARK BURNETT AND ROMA DOWNEY
Downey and Burnett finally came together to produce The Bible. This 10-hour, five-part, mini-series will tell some of the best-known stories from one of the most popular book in human history, from Noah's Ark and the Exodus to Daniel in the Lion's Den to the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus. This will be the first time they have produced together and the first time that Burnett has produced a series in which Downey stars.
