BURBANK - January 14, 2004 -- NBC will present "Behind the Camera: The
Unauthorized Story of 'Charlie's Angels'" -- the story of how the sexy

The announcement was made by Jeff Gaspin, Executive Vice President,
Alternative Series, Longform, Program Strategy of Bravo and NBC
Entertainment. "The success of the blockbuster movie franchise and
continuing popularity of the classic TV series demonstrate the
enduring popularity of 'Charlie's Angels,'" said Gaspin. "Through our
franchise of 'Behind the Camera' movie events, we want to take viewers

"Charlie's Angels" became an instant cultural phenomenon and shot to
the top of the Nielsen ratings after premiering on September 22, 1976.
It made overnight stars of its original crime-fighting "Angels" --
Farrah Fawcett-Majors, Kate Jackson and Jaclyn Smith. The trio even
made the cover of Time magazine that fall when TV celebrities rarely

"Behind The Camera: The Unauthorized Story of 'Charlie's Angels'"
stars Emmy Award winner Dan Castellaneta ("The Simpsons") as Aaron

Unauthorized Story of 'Three's Company'" as Jay Bernstein, and
actresses Tricia Helfer ("Battlestar Galactica") as Farah
Fawcett-Majors, Christina Chambers ("Sunset Beach") as Jaclyn Smith
and Lauren Stamile ("Off Centre") as Kate Jackson. In addition, Bruce
Altman ('Matchstick Men") portrays Leonard Goldberg, and Ben Browder
("Farscape") plays Lee Majors."
"'Charlie's Angels' was the original 'jiggle TV' show, and Farrah
Fawcett was the original blonde bombshell of television," said
writer-executive producer Matt Dorff ("Growing Up Brady," "Mr. Rock
'n' Roll: The Alan Freed Story"). "It was extremely influential in

As the former head of VH1 movies, Michael G. Larkin ("Red Water,"
"Murder in the Heartland") was responsible for over a dozen
pop-culture TV movies, including TV movies on The Monkees, Ricky
Nelson and Meat Loaf. Larkin also said "The dramatic story behind the
show's first season makes this a perfect fit with NBC's direction for
movies. Love it or hate it, the impact of this show is still with us
27 years later."
Last May's "Behind the Camera: The Unauthorized Story of "Three's
Company'" was one of the top five made-for-television movies of that
season among adults 18-49, averaging a 4.5 rating and an 11 share. The
May 12 telecast also attracted 9.9 million viewers overall.
The main source consulted for the movie is the book "Charlie's Angel's
Casebook" by Jack Condon and David Hofstede. Condon, who is considered
to have the world's largest collection of "Charlie's Angels"
memorabilia - topping off at more than 8,000 items - has interviewed
all six "Angels" series actresses and counts several of the women as
"Behind The Camera: The Unauthorized Story of 'Charlie's Angels'" is
executive produced by Dorff and Larkin in association with
Jaffe/Braunstein Films. I'm actually looking forward to this movie despite my natural regurg reflex to the series.
