Mythical series of the 70s, funny ladies, they are 3 girls whose mysterious employer contacts them via the phone and a man named Bosley.

These 3 women are common to have wanted to enter the police to help the population but to have been confined to vulgar administrative tasks despite their undeniable qualities. Charly has therefore hired them as private detectives and they will often find themselves in dangerous situations ...

With the exception of the nature of the representatives of justice, it is a good old traditional policeman, the female charm in addition.

The thunderous arrival of this program, in the mid -1970s, had the effect of a bomb, because, for the first time, the cast was made up of actresses, which was not necessarily a major innovation, but , above all, because they participated in a police series, a territory usually reserved for muscular males like "Starsky and Hutch" with Paul Michael Glaser and David Soul or "Vegas" (1978/1981) with Robert Urich.

A few months after its first broadcast, the heroines made the headlines of all the newspapers. Farrah Fawcett became the darling of all of America, being on the cover of the main magazines of the People press, without forgetting no less than 16 million posters sold in its effigy. However, to look more closely, we see that this detective series has all the ingredients that help to classify it in kitsch or even bad taste. It is true that in the baguette of production, we find a duo in the assertive profession: Aaron Spelling and Leonard Goldberg, great specialists in large -speaking television productions and who, at the end of the 1970s, already had a few flashes Memorable such as "Starsky and Hutch" (1975/1979), "La Croisière has fun" (1977/1986) or "The Fantastic Island" (1978/1984).

Their big intuition was to respond to a demand from American society by adding a little glamor and charm in the world of police series, and giving women to women as part of a series of action. Because, it must be recognized that the bet was not minimal at the time. In this type of programs, men had a large monopoly, so well, that in rare exceptions, they constituted elements of the decor, the storage of male actors and they were confined to second roles : victims, widows, orphans, battered women, martyred, subject of assaults, prostitutes or secretaries of the hero (the archetype being Gail Fisher in "Mannix"), which was not more rewarding. This is why, as early as 1974, the situation evolved with the programming of "Sergeant Anderson", a police series of 92 episodes broadcast from September 13, 1974 to August 30, 1978, on the NBC network, with Angie Dickinson in the title role. "Get Christie Love" will follow, unfortunately never programmed in France, the first police series with a woman of color at the top of the casting. 26 episodes were broadcast from September 11, 1974 to July 18, 1975, on the Network ABC.


It has been a long time since we present Aaron Spelling, maybe the largest of television series producers with Glen A. Larson and Stephen J. Cannell. Since his first production, in 1959, Johnny Ringo (the only series of which he is a full -fledged creator) in the year 2000, he produced series, TV movies and quality films and he has constantly renewed, understanding the eras, show what the public asked. "L'Homme à la Rolls", "The new team", "Starsky and Hutch", "The cruise is having fun", "Vegas", "For the love of risk", "Hooker", "Beverly Hills" , "Sunset Beach", "Charmed", here are some examples of success that allowed Spelling to survive and adapt to fashions.

As for Leonard Goldberg, if he was a long -standing companion in Spelling, he nevertheless separated from him in the late 1980s. Less invested in the series, he is more concerned with feature films. This did not prevent him from producing with his friend, "Hooker" and "the fantastic island". Cinema succeeds in him: he produced successes like "Wargames" or "Double game", with Tommy Lee Jones. Holder of the license, he also produced the large screen version of "Drôles de Dames", whose second episode was released on French screens in July 2003.

Funny ladies (Charlie's Angels in original version) is an American television series which was broadcast between 1976 and 1981.

Their boss, Charlie, communicates with them via a hidden intercom in a car dashboard, and gives them missions that they must accomplish by using their detective skills and using high-tech gadgets.
