NBC Plans “Heaven Is For Real” Sequel Series

Sony Pictures TV and NBC are putting together a drama series sequel to last year’s faith-based film adaptation of Pastor Todd Burpo’s bestselling book “Heaven Is For Real”.

The project is based on Todd and Sonya Burpo’s sequel book “Heaven Changes Everything” and revolves around a small-town pastor who must find the courage and faith to lead his parishioners after the news of his son’s visit to Heaven due to a near-death experience begins to capture worldwide attention.

Randy Brown (“Trouble with the Curve”) will executive produce alongside the Burpos, Joe Roth, DeVon Franklin and T.D. Jakes. TriStar/Sony’s “Heaven is for Real” film grossed more than $100 million on a $12 million budget.
