Roma Downey lights up New York with Little Angels

Little Angels Executive Producer Roma Downey

Roma Downey spent 10 years coming into our living room’s as Tess’ angel in Touched by an Angel. Now, she is behind the camera as Executive Producer of her newest venture “Little Angels”. As I mentioned last week, she is launching 3 interactive DVDs on Valentine’s Day. Today I had the honor of meeting her in an intimate blogger Q&A with my two monkeys at the Four Season’s Hotel in midtown Manhattan.

Roma talked us through her inspiration to create this brand as well as a look ahead to the future for Little Angels. In a nutshell, twin brother and sister Alex and Zoe are the central characters of the DVDs, books, iPhone app and toys to come soon. They have 8 very different angels that live on their ceilings and help them to be more understanding, love and helpful children. The little angels only come to life to give advice when the parents are not around. The voice of the mother is done by Roma herself, allowing her to have a small part in the actual animations. She mentioned that her son and daughter also did voice work and guitar on the very catchy theme song. You could truly feel that this project has been a labor of love for Roma, and her enthusiasm on the eve of its launch was infectious.

When asked how she manages life as philanthropist, wife and mother, she equated it all to a juggling act. She admitted that sometimes she drops the ball, but she just picks up the balls and keeps going again. Testament to all the plans she has coming up for the Little Angels brands plus a project in the works with husband Mark Burnett to bring The Bible to television.

I asked her about her input in the character development of the very distinct Angel characters. You can hear her response in the video below.

Roma is on Twitter and can be followed at @RealRomaDowney (someone had already taken @RomaDowney!) for inspirational quotes, positive sayings and prayers.

God in Heaven, my Savior dear Watch over my children and draw thou near Send your little angels to be at their side To light and to guard to love and to guide.

– Inspiration for Little Angel, a prayer Roma’s mother used to say every night
