couldn't take the James Bond role the first time it was offered to
him because NBC held him to his contract for more "Remington Steele"
episodes (or was it TV movie/specials that last season?). And
Farrah Fawcett was actually taken to court by ABC for breaking her
contract on "Charlies Angels" back in the 1970s. The result there
was a settlement that Fawcett was released from her contract as a
regular cast member but had to appear in several guest-appearances
over the following seasons of the series.
