She Spies is an action-adventure television show that ran from September 9, 2002 until May 17, 2004, in two seasons. The show was sold into syndication but the first four episodes premiered on the NBC network, whose syndication arm was one of the producers. Disappointing ratings during the show's second season led to its cancellation after season two ended. She Spies bore noticeable production and directive similarities with Charlie's Angels.

Plot[edit]

Three female convicted felons who were incarcerated for electronic crimes ("DD"), con tricks ("Cassie") and battery ("Shane") get paroled out of prison in exchange for work as secret operatives for the US government under 'ComCent',a branch of the ISD. In addition, the trio has to answer to a special agent in charge of success of their operations and of making sure that the terms of their conditional release are consistently abided by.

Comedic and chick flick elements[edit]

She Spies had very strong comic and chick flick elements which in many instances proved even more relevant to the storytelling than the spy-related situations and gadgets themselves. The type of humor changed markedly from season one to season two, with the former containing much self-referential humor and breaking of the "fourth wall", while both these elements were removed in season two.
