“Good Morning Angels”: Secrets From The Set Of Charlie’s Angels

Female Led Action Series

Charlie’s Angels was produced by power-producer Aaron Spelling. When he first proposed the show to ABC executives they almost put a stop to it before it even got started. They apparently hated the idea of a female-led action series.


Frankly, at the time, the 1970’s, female-led anything was nearly unheard of, much less having women as the sole stars of a TV show. The network allegedly said “it was the worst idea that they’d ever heard” because Aaron Spelling had his own money to invest in the show, it made it possible to actually shoot the pilot, which obviously changed the network’s mind because Charlie’s Angels made it to air.
