Mark Burnett and Roma Downey at the NRB 2014 Convention

Mark Burnett & Roma DowneyEmmy award-winning producer Mark Burnett and his wife, Emmy-nominated actress Roma Downey, will make a special appearance at the upcoming NRB International Christian Media Convention in Nashville, TN, where thousands of Christian media and ministry professionals will gather to get trained, connected, and equipped.

The couple behind the hugely popular TV miniseries The Bible will give a presentation and participate in an interactive discussion during the Saturday evening session on February 22. The following evening, in Delta Ballroom A, there will be a full screening of Son of God, the feature film based on The Bible.

“We are excited to have Mark Burnett and Roma Downey join us at NRB 2014,” commented NRB President & CEO Dr. Jerry A. Johnson. “We are also excited to host a full screening of Son of God before it reaches theaters on February 28. Convention attendees will be blessed to hear from this faithful couple and to be among the first to witness what promises to be a major motion picture event.”

Told with the scope and scale of an action epic, Son of God features powerful performances, exotic locales, dazzling visual effects, and a rich orchestral score from Oscar-winner Hans Zimmer. The film spans from the humble birth of Jesus (portrayed by Portuguese actor Diogo Morgado) through His teachings, crucifixion, and ultimate resurrection. Son of God marks the first major motion picture about Jesus’ life since Passion of the Christ, which was released 10 years ago.
