Early life[edit]

Mark Burnett was born on 17 July 1960 in London, the only child of Archie and Jean Burnett, both Scottish Ford Motors factory workers,[5] and was raised in Dagenham, Essex. His father was a Roman Catholic and his mother was a Presbyterian, although it is not known in which denomination he was raised.[6] Aged 17, he enlisted in the British Army, and became a Section Commander in the Parachute Regiment. From 1978–82 he served with the 3rd Battalion, Parachute Regiment in C Company and saw action during the Falklands War.[5] He has been a naturalized United States citizen since 1990, according to some reports.[citation needed]

Early career[edit]

In October 1982, Burnett decided to immigrate to the United States, where he met up with a friend, Nick Hill, who had emigrated from the UK several years earlier and was working as a nanny and chauffeur. Hill knew of an open position for a live-in nanny position with the Jaeger family in affluent Beverly Hills, the interview for which was that night. Despite having no experience, Burnett took the opportunity. The Jaegers, realizing the advantage of having a nanny and security at the same time, hired him. After a year of working for the Jaegers, he moved on to another family in Malibu, taking care of two boys for $250 a week. He was eventually given a position in the insurance office owned by Burt, the father of the two boys. Two years later, he decided to rent a portion of a fence at Venice Beach and sell T-shirts for $18 each during weekends. Realizing he made more money selling t-shirts, he left his insurance job.[7] In 1991, Burnett, along with four others, joined a French adventure competition called the Raid Gauloises. After competing, Burnett saw a business opportunity in holding similar competitions. He purchased the format rights and brought a similar competition, Eco-Challenge, to America. Eco-Challenge launched Burnett's career as a television producer.[5]

Productions[edit]

Burnett is best known for producing the hit reality show Survivor, which premiered in the summer of 2000 and was the most watched summer series since Sonny and Cher.[8] Survivor was named the Number 1 reality series of all time by Entertainment Weekly in 2009.[9]

Burnett has produced several other television franchises including: The Apprentice, Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader?, Shark Tank, and The Voice.[10] He has maintained a strong presence in award show franchises, having produced the MTV Movie Awards (2007–2011), the annual People's Choice Awards (2010–present), the Video Game Awards and the 2011 Primetime Emmy Awards.[citation needed]

Burnett has produced over 1,200 hours of television programming which regularly airs in over 70 countries worldwide.[11] Past shows include Bully Beatdown, Combat Missions, The Contender, The Contender Asia, Expedition Africa, Expedition Impossible, How'd You Get So Rich?, Martha Stewart, My Dad Is Better Than Your Dad, On the Lot (a collaboration with Steven Spielberg), The Restaurant, Rock Star, Sarah Palin's Alaska, Stars Earn Stripes, Starmaker, Toughest Cowboy, and Wedding Day.

As well as his ongoing productions, Burnett and his wife, actress Roma Downey, produced The Bible, a 10 hour History Channel drama based upon stories of the Bible.[12] The Bible became the number 1 new series on cable TV in 2013[13] and was the #1 series in Canada, Spain, and Portugal.[14] In total, with subsequent airings, 'The Bible' has been seen by more than 100 million viewers.[15] According to 20th Century Fox, The Bible ranks as the fastest-selling TV title released on home video in the last five years, and ranks as the top miniseries title ever during its first week of release".[16]

In October 2013, NBC announced that it has reached a deal with Burnett and Richard Branson's Virgin Galactic to produce a television series on which contestants will compete to win a spaceflight aboard SpaceShipTwo. The series will be titled Space Race, although it is currently undeterminable when the show will begin airing.[17]

Personal life[edit]

In January 2004, Mark began dating actress Roma Downey. In November 2006, while the two were vacationing with their children in Zihuatanejo, Mexico, he proposed to her.[18] They wed on 28 April 2007 in their Malibu home. The ceremony was officiated by Downey's former costar, Della Reese.[19]

Burnett's first marriage was to Dianne J. Burnett (née Valentine); they have two sons, James and Cameron.[20] The couple filed for legal separation in September 2002 and a judgment for legal separation was granted in December 2003.[20][21] They later divorced.[when?]
