Cheryl Ladd auditioned for the role of Nancy Lawrence in Aaron Spelling's 1976 critically acclaimed family drama, Family (1976). As it often happens in Hollywood, she was turned down for this role, but saved for another Spelling production a year later, Charlie's Angels. The Nancy Lawrence role that Ladd was turned down for ended up going to Meredith Baxter. See more »
Throughout the series a shot of the Townsend Agency building with the Angels' cars out front is used whenever establishing the next scene. Which cars are out front rarely match which Angels are in the next office scene.
BTW, when all three cars are parked, they are almost always in the same order, left-to-right on the screen (white, yellow and orange).
Also note that the one on the left (normally the white one) and the one on the right (normally the orange one) are always parked in "no parking" spots (the red paint). Note also that there is only one parking meter. See more »
Once upon a time, there were three little girls who went to the Police Academy; and they were each assigned very hazardous duties. But I took them away from all that, and now they work for me. My name is Charlie.

Three Beautiful Detectives...What More Could A Man Want?
I loved Charlies Angels very much. Okay, I could ignore the cheezy plots because in front of me each week were three beautiful young ladies working as private detectives.
The original girls were Farrah Fawcett-Majors as Jill Monroe, Kate Jackson as Sabrina Duncan and Jaclyn Smith as Kelly Garrett. They were my favourite line up in the show. Their bosses were John Bosley (played by the late David Doyle) and the faceless Charlie Townsend (voiced by John Forsythe).
Each week the girls happened to go undercover on a case which required them to strip down in places such as health-spas and holiday camps. They used their seductive (and detective) skills to bring down the bad guys.
It was fun throughout even when the line-up changed and there were some really weird and surreal episodes at times. But who cares-when you've got three lovely women on the screen, great plots matter little.
