U.S. cable network TLC has ordered an unscripted series from Roma Downey’s LightWorkers Media, about people who claim they have experienced miracles.
Downey (pictured) will host the six-hour series, which does not yet have a title. Casting is underway and production will begin this fall.
According to the casting notice, producers are looking for people with “stories of answered prayers, of miracles, of divine intervention in our daily lives. If your story is chosen for the series, we will interview you and may even try to recreate your experiences for our television audience.”
“This is a wonderful opportunity to work with TLC and host a series that will inspire and encourage viewers to remember that even in the worst circumstances, prayer can lead to divine intervention,” Downey said in a statement.
In September, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios (MGM) acquired a 55% stake in Downey, Mark Burnett and Hearst Entertainment’s production companies One Three Media and Lightworks Entertainment.
