Through heart-wrenching interviews, thrilling re-creations and dramatic real footage, the hourlong episodes will paint vivid portraits of ordinary people who have faced extraordinary circumstances — and miraculously lived to tell the tale. From a young boy buried for hours under 11 feet of sand, to the horror of a pastor stabbed 37 times, to a family that survives their car plunging upside down into an icy river bank, the episodes focus on how each person’s unwavering faith and trust in the power of prayer transformed potentially heartbreaking situations into stories of true inspiration.
“Answered Prayers” is produced for TLC by Downey’s LightWorkers Media, a division of United Artists Media Group (a newly formed joint venture among MGM, Mark Burnett, Roma Downey and Hearst Entertainment). Executive producers for LightWorkers Media are Downey, Mark Burnett and Tom Shelly. Wendy Hinton is co-executive producer.
“Answered Prayers” premiers at 10 pm July 26 on TLC.
