Keynote Conversation: Mark Burnett

Husband and wife team Mark Burnett and Roma Downey comprise the dynamic duo behind one of television's biggest miniseries, The Bible for History, as well as AD The Bible Continues for NBC airing on Sunday nights and Women of the Bible for Lifetime. 

Their upcoming series for TLC, Answered Prayers, will premiere on July 26th, and following the success of Son of God, they have moved further into the theatrical feature world, currently producing the epic film Ben-Hur, a remaking of the classic story with MGM and Paramount Pictures, set for release in Spring 2016.

In this keynote conversation, Burnett, the executive producer behind such iconic series as CBS's Survivor and NBC's The Voice among many others, and Downey, star of the CBS hit Touched By an Angel and President of LightWorkers Media,  will share their thoughts on life as a "power couple" in the content industry; their business initiatives including the formation of United Artists Media Group, and their vision for the content they plan to develop within it. They'll also discuss their recent forays – both scripted and unscripted – into family-friendly and inspirational content; and provide a look at their careers to this point, sharing the valuable lessons they’ve learned through successes and challenges.
