Cheryl Ladd shot to stardom on the iconic 1970's TV show Charlie's Angels, where she played the younger sister of Farrah Fawcett's lead character. Now she is a recurring guest star in a sitcom on, the faith-based and family-friendly streaming service.

The program is called Malibu Dan the Family Man and Ladd plays the mother of the eponymous star, a morning TV show host. That role is played by Christian actor David A.R. White, who is also the founder of Pure Flix. Another heavyweight in the Christian film sector, actor-producer Kevin Downes - partner of Andrew Erwin and Jon Erwin, with whom he made last year's smash hit movie I Can Only Imagine - also stars on this program.

In an interview with Fox News, Ladd was full of praise for White, calling him "a wonderful actor and delightful to work with." Now 67 and a grandmother of three, she says she's a fan of Pure Flix in general and this show in particular.

"I think for a parent it can sometimes be difficult to find something you can all watch together these days. This is a really safe place to go and it’s just really funny."

Ladd, who first went to Hollywood in 1970 to pursue a music career - she was the voice of Melody for the Saturday morning cartoon Josie and the Pussy Cats - also spoke about the importance of her Christian faith.

"I’m an avid churchgoer. I have a personal relationship with the Lord since I was a child. I just think it has gotten stronger and deeper as the years go by."

Malibu Dan the Family Man is available on Pure Flix's subscription-based streaming service. You can check out the trailer right here.
