HAPPY 40th Anniversary!


This month, Charlie's Angels is celebrating the 40th anniversary of its debut as a TV series. It took a lot of convincing from exec prods Aaron Spelling and Leonard Goldberg to get the pilot made and aired on the ABC network; but when it was, it was such an instant hit that it baffled everyone in Hollywood. When the pilot was re-aired and got the same reception, it was given the green light to go on as a series - and what a phenomenal hit series it was.

Charlie's Angels was re-released on DVD with a new package design

Charlie's Angels The Complete Series was re-released on DVD by Mill Creek Entertainment. The new DVD set came out September 6. With a new box design, the 20-disc set contains all the episodes from the original series. Thank you so much to CharliesAngels.com at Facebook for posting the box design. For more, check out:

To this very day, everyone remembers Sabrina, Jill, Kelly, Kris, Tiffany and Julie. Everyone has their favorite Angel - and everyone defends their favorite Angel. And why not? Each and every one of them had their own brand of style and appeal. From Kate Jackson as the smart no-nonsense Sabrina Duncan, Farrah Fawcett as the sporty California girl Jill Munroe, Jaclyn Smith as the sultry and mysterious Kelly Garrett to Cheryl Ladd as the cute and sexy girl-next-door Kris Munroe, Shelley Hack as the classy intellectual Tiffany Welles and Tanya Roberts as the street-smart tigress Julie Rogers - they were all gorgeous and they were all loved by fans. They were the biggest and brightest stars of the 1970s. They are icons of the era.
