About the show
In the beloved series “Touched By An Angel,” an angel named Monica (Roma Downey) and her supervisor, Tess (Della Reese), are tasked with bringing messages of love from God to troubled people.
From the third season on, Monica and Tess are frequently joined by Andrew (John Dye), the angel of death (who first appeared as a recurring character in season two). In the later seasons, they are joined by Valerie Bertinelli, another rookie angel. Many guest stars appeared in the series, including Jasmine Guy, Delta Burke and many others.
“Touched By An Angel” ran for 211 episodes and nine seasons until its conclusion in 2003. Created by John Masius and produced by Martha Williamson, the series served as the launch pad for the series “Promised Land” where there were a number of crossover episodes.
