A new unscripted TV project has a religious theme, focusing in particular on divine intervention. The Los Angeles Times’ Show Tracker reports that the untitled series from Mark Burnett and Roma Downey is in the works at TLC.

The show will spotlight people who say they have experienced divine intervention, the story reports. Downey will executive produce with Burnett, her husband, and will also host the six-part series.

“This is a wonderful opportunity to work with TLC and host a series that will inspire and encourage viewers to remember that even in the worst circumstances prayer can lead to divine intervention,” Downey said.

The project may roll out in 2015, potentially near the holidays.

Burnett and Downey created the successful miniseries “The Bible” for the History Channel last year, which drew 13.1 million viewers for its debut and wrapped up on Easter Sunday with almost 12 million viewers turning out for the finale.
