Touched By An Angel


Rediscover the heartwarming, moving and award-winning drama Touched by an Angel. Starring Della Reese and Roma Downey, Touched by an Angel was one of North America’s highest rated shows during its original, nine season run.

Throughout the series, Monica (Downey), an Earth-bound angel, is assigned to bring guidance and inspiration to people who are at a crossroads in their lives. Monica reports to Tess (Reese), her tough, wise and always loving supervisor. In season three, Monica and Tess are joined by Andrew (John Dye), who, in addition to his duties as the Angel of Death, helps out as a caseworker on the divine assignments. While the angels may not bring absolute answers to the troubled people they encounter, they always deliver a message of hope.
