This last week I had the opportunity to hook up once again with two dear friends. Jeff Reno and Ron Osborne wrote a pilot (some moons ago) called "McBride and Groom" which I shot with Debrah Farentino for CBS. Foolishly CBS did not pick up the show, but it remains one of my happiest experiences in this business. They went on to write the brilliant cult-classic "Duckman" , a cartoon that aired on A & E and Cartoon network (on which I did a number of guest voices) and more recently worked for a season on "The West Wing." Most recently they were asked to take over as Head-writers and showrunners on the syndicated show "She Spies" which stars Natasha Henstridge as the leader of a trio of "babelicious" crime-fighters. They asked me to be the guest star on the final show of the season, written and directed by Jeff. I was thrilled to work with these extremely talented writers again and even more thrilled when I saw how much fun the script was. I won't spoil the story for you, but suffice it to say that getting beat up by these secret agents was pretty enjoyable!
The set was easily one of the happiest and most welcoming of any I have worked on. Everyone was very kind and having a great time, but totally professional once we began the work. They even invited me to the "wrap party" the following weekend. They are now waiting to see if they are going to be picked up for more shows, and if there is any justice out there, I am sure "She Spies" will be around for a while. Try to catch it if you can, I think you will be pleasantly surprised.
In his guest starring role in the season finale of "She Spies: Bad Girls Gone Good". Charlie plays the part of Henry Harrington. The episode is titled "We'll Be Right Back" and is written and directed by Jeff Reno.
"She Spies: Bad Girls Gone Good" stars Natasha Henstridge as Cassie McBain, Natashia Williams as Shane Phillips, Kristen Miller as D.D. Cummings and Carlos Jacott as Jack Wilde. "She Spies" aired in syndication and was the top rated show in syndication.
The show described itself as follows: "Forget the CIA, the FBI and the Department of Defense - the fate of national security has been entrusted to a gorgeous and volatile trio of convicted felons. Not since J. Edgar Hoover have crime-fighters looked this good in black spiked heels. Meet Cassie, DD and Shane, the thieving threesome plucked from prison by a clandestine government organization and given a choice: either spend their best years under lock and key or enlist with the good guys, putting their considerable criminal talents to more patriotic use.
Working for the very feds that put them away, the career con-girls have turned their backs on their former lives, waging weekly war on the lowliest of the world's sleaze and scumbags, armed with sleek moves, street smarts and enough attitude to make a sailor blush.
Alone they were common criminals. Together they are crime's greatest adversary. It's a bad time to be a bad guy." To find out more about this very funny new show, including when it airs, visit the official "She Spies" website.
