Touched by an Angel is an American fantasy drama series that chronicles the missions of a group of angels sent by God to Earth to assist people in crisis. Created by John Masius and produced by Martha Williamson, the show ran on CBS for nine seasons, from September 21, 1994 to April 27, 2003, and aired in many countries all around the world. Regular production was based in Salt Lake City, Utah. The show starred Roma Downey and Della Reese as an angel and a boss, who helped God's directional life. The show's premise was based heavily on non-denominational Christian concepts. The show usually revolves around a person or group of people who come to a crossroad in their lives, such as a big problem or a tough decision. Then angels enter the scene, bringing messages directly from God and helping people in their problems. Monica, the main angel character, is always learning how to assist humans with their needs and questions.
In the series premiere, bold supervisor Tess (played by Gospel singer, actress and pastor Della Reese) guides Monica (played by Roma Downey) on her first assignment as a case worker after being promoted from search and rescue.
