Shelley played Jackie Shea in her third TV series Jack and Mike which was aired from 1986 to 1987. She along with co-star Tom Mason, as Mike Brennan, played a busy yuppie couple trying to make their marriage work. It was a delight to watch and it would be wonderful to see it on DVD or even in iTunes.

A promo for the series is part of a commercial block/montage from 1986 and is on YouTube. The episode featured is "Personal Foul" and is a replay. It's about a college professor who is suspended for trying to flunk the school's star
basketball player. Mike is upset that Jackie's covering the story,
since it's his Alma Mater and he's the team's No. 1 supporter. Check it out.

In 1978, film producer Albert "Cubby" Broccoli was looking for Bond Girls for the upcoming James Bond installment Moonraker. Shelley's success as the Charlie Girl brought her to the attention of the producer who talked to her and wanted her to test for the part.
Shelley posed for this Penneys ad in the '60s. She modeled a white double-breasted mock-mouton acrylic pile peacoat with shiny vinyl trim. It may have been fake mouton, but at $28, the price was real. Shelley is so young and fresh in this ad.
Shelley and Tom Mason posed for some stills in 1986 for their TV series Jack and Mike. They played a busy yuppie married couple trying to find time to be together. These were taken around Chicago, the setting for the series whose working title was Our Kind of Town.
Shelley appeared in several Charlie perfume commercials throughout the '70s and the early 80's. Her debut commercial as the quintessential Charlie Girl was so sensational it spawned many versions. Some of these are on YouTube, check them out.
The sensational 1976 debut
This is the sensational 1976 commercial which made televison history.

Cowboys and the Angel, 1980s http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BWvRDa35jeU
The 1980s version of the commercial appears in this montage.
Cowboy themed, it takes Charlie Girl and Angel Shelley
into a sort of disco-square dance hall.
Thank you so much to those who posted these five commercials. And, by the way, there are more versions of the commercial with Shelley. YouTube postings of these others would be very much appreciated by Shelley Hack fans all over the world. That would be Kinda WOW!
A 1983 clipping about Shelley on her thoughts on her then new TV series Cutter to Houston. Her King of Comedy performance gave her a career boost and aside from her new series, she had Trackdown and Max and Sam (later renamed Found Money) as coming attractions. After Angels, Shelley was definitely going forward.
Charlie's Angels The Complete Series DVD box set is finally being released
on September 25, 2012 and many fans are excited.
Previous post: Shelley and Tanya should appear in the lower box with Cheryl.
A first glimpse of the box set cover design appeared on charliesangels.com and this blog was disappointed that Shelley and Tanya weren't featured on the front cover where they deserve to be (Super September News, Sunday, July 22, 2012.) This blog even suggested that maybe Shelley and Tanya can appear in the lower box (see above) with Cheryl.
Season 1 and Seasons 2 & 3 Angel teams appear on one side panel
Season 4 and Season 5 Angels teams appear on the other side panel
But as it turns out, the two do appear prominently but on the other side panel of the box set (see above) and all throughout. In fact, their characters are also equally acknowledged along with Charlie's first four Angels (see below).
Tiffany Welles and Julie Rogers equally acknowledged
Apologies and many thanks to the designer of the box set (Was it Mike Pingel of charliesangels.com?) Not only does it feature all the Angels, it's very eye-catching as well. Love it. Can't wait to get it.
Wanna preview the box set design?

Thanks, Mike, it's absolutely beautiful.
A clipping about the 1986-1987 TV series Jack and Mike which starred Shelley and Tom Mason as a married yuppie couple trying to strike a balance between work and play. The series was panned by some critics since its debut, but was found quite a delight by others. A break up to shake up the storyline was cooked up in 1987 to generate ratings. Sleeper hits were unimaginable at the time.
Shelley is shown above in a pic from the French mag Cine Tele Revue from June of 1980 (she also made the cover.) The caption translates to, "Shelley Hack, the latest Charlie's Angel: a harmonious blend of innocence and sex appeal."
Shelley was featured in a spread called "Shop The World Without Leaving Home" for Woman's Day magazine, October 1974. Shelley modeled a 2-pc. tunic-and-pants suit and a Guatemalan woven cotton jacket. Thanks to TJ for the mag.
In October of 2010, Shelley was interviewed by Allure magazine about her Charlie Girl persona. The article mentioned many interesting tidbits about her break into modeling and her thoughts about being the Charlie Girl. Thanks very much to TJ for the copy.
Watch the trailer at:
The trailer of Shelley's 1995 TV Movie, Freefall: Flight 174 is on YouTube. The film is based on a true story, an aviation incident that happened in 1983. The film keeps you on the edge of your seat. If you can find it, watch it, it's an interesting ride.
