DESCRIPTION

Charlie Picernie started his career as a stuntman by doing many big stunts that caught the eye of Hal Needham and Ronnie Rondell. He worked on some of the biggest films of that time like "Tora Tora Tora", "Tobruk" and "Che!"...this is what led him being asked to be one of the original members of Stunts Unlimited! Charlie then moved up to stunt coordinating TV shows. He got his big break on "Starsky and Hutch", he was the stunt coordinator and Paul Michael Glaser's stunt double. Aaron Spelling and Duke Vincent saw what direction Charlie was heading in - "Directing"! He started second unit directing Starsky and Hutch and then moved up to Directing episodes of Starsky. He continued stunt coordinating and second unit directing such shows as "Kojak" and "Magnum PI". He then started First Unit Directing Television for producers Aaron Spelling, Leonard Goldberg and Steven Cannell, for such shows as, "Tj Hooker", "Matt Houston", "Vegas", "Hard Castle and McCormick", "Hunter", "Stingray", "Finders of Lost Loves", "A-Team", "JJ Starbuck", "Spencer for Hire", "Blue Thunder", "Gavilan" and HBO's "Tales From the Crypt". Considered a legend in the action directing and stunt arena, Charlie Picerni continues to work and says he will never retire - he is still performing and directing and enjoys teaching novice directors and stunt performers.
