Mark Burnett and Roma Downey’s LightWorkers Media banner is shepherding a drama project for NBC and Universal TV about guardian angels.

“Unveiled” is a procedural revolving around a group of people who are tasked with intervening to help people in crisis. John Sakmar and Kerry Lenhart penned the script and are exec producing with Burnett and Downey.

The project is a fit with the heightened interest in spiritual themes at most of the broadcast networks for the 2015 development derby.

    Right, this “unbelieving world,” where something like 90% of the population believes in a Supreme Being. If they want to “spread” the Gospel, how about they give up their wealth to poor people, as Jesus commanded.

  3. This will no doubt be a gripping drama, providing answers to us as we all gather around our screens in search of spiritual fulfilment.

      Or it will show “angels” saving people from things like plane crashes and disease, without explaining why people in the real world still die from those things. It will certainly not try to explain why, if angels and God exist, bad things still happen.

      If you are looking at a TV screen for spiritual fulfillment, you have more problems than you realize.
