Victoria Osteen, co-pastor of Lakewood Church in Texas, and Kay Warren, co-founder of California’s Saddleback Church, will appear in a new TV special produced by Roma Downey and Mark Burnett that will be aired next month as a prelude to a new drama series on women from the Old Testament.
The wife of Pastor Joel Osteen and the wife of Pastor Rick Warren will take part in the special, called “Women of the Bible,” which will be narrated by Downey and produced by her LightWorkers Media, a unit of Burnett and Downey’s United Artists Media Group banner, Variety reports.
The special will include stories of Eve, Sara, Rehab, Mary Magdalene and Mary as well as interviews of today’s women leaders of faith, including co-founders of Going Beyond Ministries Christine Caine and Priscilla Shirer, Eva Rodriguez of the Latino Evangelical Women’s Association and Bible teacher Joyce Meyer, in addition to Warren and Osteen.
“Women have obviously played such an important role in biblical history, and Mark and I are excited to shine a light on these individual stories through the eyes of some of today’s most incredible women of faith,” the Hollywood Reporter quotes Downey as saying.
“Women of the Bible” is a prelude to a mini-series, called “The Red Tent,” starring Minnie Driver which will tell the story of Dinah, the daughter of Leah and Jacob.
Downey is also set to host a series for TLC in 2015 on people who have witnessed real-life miracles.
