Light TV To Launch in December
Roma Downey and her husband Mark Burnett, producers of Son of God and the Bible miniseries have announced their latest project, Light TV, a faith and family television network aiming to serve families with wholesome entertainment.
The network is set to launch next month with 24 hour programming in partnership with FOX and MGM. The network will be introduced first in major markets around the U.S. including NY, Chicago and L.A. on several major providers according to CBN.
In a recent interview with Variety Magazine Burnett says he believes the family market is underserved and this is an opportunity to reach an audience looking for quality content. The couple is partnering with Fox and MGM to bring the network to market.
Roma Downey told Variety,
"This is the beginning of our new, multi-platform faith and family network, where the demand is greater than ever for family-friendly entertainment."
Downey believes this is the last unclaimed vertical market looking for inspiring programming.
