In the 1970's model-turned-actress Shelley Hack went from “Charlie Girl” to “Charlie's Angel.” As the radiant star of Revlon's Charlie perfume campaign, Hack became a household face in ubiquitous commercials and print ads. It was that easy, breezy public persona that led to her being chosen to replace Kate Jackson when she exited Charlie’s Angels after its third season. After casting her in the coveted role of Tiffany Wells, series producers at Spelling-Goldberg were quoted as saying, "We feel that Shelley Hack has exactly the talent, style and intelligence we were looking for." Hack did bring an air of sophistication to the role, but after a single season on the ABC series, her wings were prematurely clipped. At the time a statement issued by Spelling-Goldberg read: "When she signed her contract for the series, Miss Hack had a personal agreement that she could review her continuation with the show at the end of her first season since series television represented an enormous change in her career and lifestyle."
