Super Night of Entertainment

Shelley in an ad for "Angels on the Street"
a Charlie's Angels episode aired in 1979

In 1979, Shelley joined the cast of one of the most entertaining shows on the tube, Charlie's Angels, joining incumbent Angels Jaclyn Smith and Cheryl Ladd. The show had been around for three seasons and was showing signs of wear and tear. During its 3rd season, Charlie's Angels dropped from #4 to #12 in the ratings. The series needed a big boost - which it got when Kate Jackson was suddenly fired and Supermodel/Charlie Girl Shelley Hack was hired to replace her. The publicity mill was non-stop; and the two women made headlines that year. The TV series got a lot of extra publicity out of it.
