Touched by an Angel (TV Series 1994–2003) Poster



The show was cancelled during its first season. It was brought back the next year after the fans staged a letter-writing campaign.
According to an interview with Roma Downey, many of the clothes Monica wears in the first season were Downey's own, because she was a such a small size the wardrobe department didn't have anything that fit her.
At the beginning of Season 4, Della Reese received a lesser salary, hence, she was threatened to leave the show if both CBS and Martha Williamson didn't up her salary.
Della Reese's character sent the other angels out on missions to help people redeem their lives and show them God's love, in real-life, Reese is an ordained minister.
Despite going against Della Reese's better judgment, she was the first and only choice to audition and reluctantly won the role of Tess.
In numerous interviews, Roma Downey has said that her child Reilly is the goddaughter to actress Della Reese.
Della Reese is not the only actress to sing Christian music on the show, when there were several popular Christian artists who also composed music.
Della Reese was 63 years old when the show started.
John Masius's original pilot script was much darker than that which was eventually shown on TV (In the original pilot, Tess was a chain-smoking angel who was frequently at Monica's throat.)
