Date November 27, 2017

Roma Downey, who is best known for playing Monica in the Sunday hit TV show “Touched by an Angel”, and New York Times bestselling author Karen Kingsbury have teamed up to bring to the small screen the acclaimed novel series “The Baxter Family”.

This new development is very promising.


Roma’s spiritual stability amidst public success

Roma Downey was raised in a Christian home and has remained true to her childhood faith. She once said in an interview:

I have always had a deep connection with my faith and I was fortunate to have been brought up in a Christian environment. My faith is a very important part of who I am.


Combining faith with work

Roma considers it a blessing to have been able to combine her faith with her work, which has garnered her worldwide fame and fortune. Merging her open devotion to the Christian faith and her passion as a Hollywood practitioner has further led to the co-launch of LightWorkers Media.

The media production company, also known as the faith and family division of MGM, has been responsible for notable TV shows.


Bringing a novel to life

"The Baxter Family" is the latest project by LightWorkers Media.

Redemption is the first installment in the 22-book serial and is centered on the eponymous, Baxter family: John, Elizabeth, and their six grown-up kids. The drama unfolds in and around them, highlighting the value of faith, love, and community.


Karen Kingsbury is confident in Roma Downey and quite certain in the auspicious outcome of the project as she expressed in an interview,

In her (Downey) 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.

If you know about Roma and her work, you would agree with Karen that this is going to be a blockbuster!
