LOS ANGELES (AP) — Hollywood power couple Mark Burnett and Roma Downey are launching a faith-and-family entertainment broadcast network next month.

Light TV will air on Fox stations and affiliates and capitalize on MGM’s film and TV library.

According to a release Wednesday, the round-the-clock network will feature “wholesome family and faith-based” properties, including the films “Rocky” and “Fame” and the TV series “Highway to Heaven.”

Reality TV producer Burnett is known for shows including “The Apprentice,” ”The Voice” and “Survivor” and Bible-based miniseries. He is president of MGM Television and Digital.

His wife, who starred in “Touched by an Angel,” is president of LightWorkers, Media, a division of MGM.

Light TV will launch in December in more than a dozen major TV markets including New York City, Los Angeles, Chicago, Philadelphia and Dallas.
