Christian romance writer Karen Kingsbury signed the deal of a lifetime with THE BIBLE star and producer Roma Downey. Kingsbury’s popular The Baxters series makes a perfect addition to the growing faith and family-based market hungry for stories that are both mainstream and tailored to their interests.
From the press release:
“The Baxter Family” series – starting with the book Redemption – tells the story of how John and Elizabeth Baxter, and their six adult children, come together over love, loss, laughter, and life in an epic, unforgettable drama that proves the strength of faith and family.
“Working with Roma Downey to see the Baxter Family become a TV series is the most exciting thing to happen in my entire career,” said Karen Kingsbury. “I couldn’t be more thrilled. Roma’s heart is engaged in this project because she is a reader. In her capable and talented hands, we all believe the Baxter Family will become a longstanding beloved series that will run for many years to come. My 25 million readers have been begging to see the Baxter Family on TV, and now their dreams will come true.”
“At LightWorkers, we are always looking for uplifting projects and because I am such a fan of the series, it makes so much sense to bring our two brands together,” said Roma Downey, President of LightWorkers Media. “In partnership with Karen, we want to bring this beloved family drama to the small screen so families can enjoy it together.”
