Synopsis by Hal Erickson

T.J. McKenna (Alan Rosenberg), a jaded executive at the NNT television network, once cared about living the best and most worthwhile life possible. Now all McKenna concerns himself is NNT's ratings, and accordingly he brashly promotes his network's programming as "bigger, better, absolutely shocking". Enter Monica (Roma Downey), who throws McKenna for a loop--and turns his life around--by suggesting that he put on a weekly TV show about angels. As part of Monica's "pitch", the viewer is treated to highlights from previous Touched by an Angel episodes, wherein Monica, Tess (Della Reese) and Andrew (John Dye) show the benefits accrued by caring for others rather than oneself. Conchate Ferrell costars in the pivotal role of McKenna's long-suffering secretary.
