Delta Trivia

There was a pilot episode of the Delta TV show that was produced in order to sell the series but was never broadcast.

For some reason, Delta's first episode aired on a Tuesday night at 9:30PM and then its second episode was broadcast just two nights later on Thursday at 8:00PM. It remained there for the next ten episodes where it had to compete with "Top Cops" on ABC, "The Simpsons" on FOX, and "A Different World" on NBC. At that point, the ratings and ABC executives had dealt the series its death blow but there were still six more episodes that had already been produced. Typically when a series is canceled with unaired episodes they are just never seen but in this case ABC made Delta fans happy and aired them, albeit months later.

When Delta Bishop's husband refused to support her in her dream of country stardom, she dropped him like a hot potato! She also quit her job at Mona's House of Hair to head out for Nashville where country hopefuls become country stars! Like most people trying to break into show business, she worked a normal job to support herself by waiting on tables in a Nashville bar.
