Prime Video has acquired the family drama series The Baxters from LightWorkers Media.

Based on the book series by Karen Kingsbury, The Baxters is a family drama that follows Elizabeth and John Baxter and their five adult children. Season One of The Baxters centres on Elizabeth and John’s daughter, Kari, who learns the shocking truth that her professor husband, Tim, has been secretly having an affair with one of his college students. As her relationship is tested, Kari must seek comfort in her faith and family to discover if love is truly a choice and if her marriage can be redeemed. In this moving faith-based journey, The Baxters must come together as a family to work through the challenges of life.

“With over 25 million fans of the Baxter series books we know audiences are going to love this family  drama brought to life, and I am personally so excited to bring more inspirational content to Prime Video,” said Downey.

Additional cast include Ali Cobrin as Kari Baxter Jacobs, Masey McLain as Ashley Baxter, Josh Plasse as Luke Baxter, Cassidy Gifford as Reagan Decker, Reilly Anspaugh as Erin Baxter, Emily Peterson as Brooke Baxter, and Brandon Hirsch as Tim Jacobs.

The Baxters is produced by LightWorkers Media, Will Packer Media, and Haven Entertainment. Jessie Rosen serves as showrunner and executive producer.
