Signed, Sealed, Delivered is a wonderful combination of romance, comedy and drama that follows the lives of four postal detectives who transform themselves into a team of detectives to track down intended recipients of undeliverable mail. Their missions take them out of the office and into an unpredictable world where redirected letters and packages can save lives, solve crimes, reunite old loves and change futures by arriving late but somehow always on time.
The team includes charming Oliver O'Toole, a genius postal detective and the group's leader; new team member Shane McInerney, a technophile who brings 21st century sensibility to the group; free-spirited, "girl next door" Rita Haywith who has a photographic memory; and lovable Norman Dorman, a master in conventional research methods.

“Signed, Sealed, Delivered I'm Yours” is a soul single by American musician Stevie Wonder, recorded for Motown's Tamla label. Released in June 1970, the song spent six weeks at number one on the U.S. R&B chart and peaked at number three on the U.S. Pop chart. In the same year, the song was also released on the album Signed, Sealed & Delivered. The song was arranged by Paul Riser and featured a distinctive “sitar-guitar” in the introduction. The song was a series of firsts for the 20-year-old Wonder: “Signed, Sealed, Delivered I'm Yours” was the first single Wonder produced on his own, and was also the first to feature his female backup singing group composed of Lynda Tucker Laurence (who went on to become a member of The Supremes), Syreeta Wright (who also co-wrote the song), and Venetta Fields. During a 2008 appearance on Friday Night with Jonathan Ross, Wonder credited the song title and chorus “signed, sealed, delivered, I'm yours” to his mother Lula, who exclaimed the words after listening to her son experiment with the melody. This song also marked Wonder's sixth Grammy nomination. The award went to Ronald Dunbar and General Johnson for writing the Clarence Carter song “Patches”.
