She was one of Charlie's Angels, portrayed Grace Kelly in Princess Grace, and most recently played Robert Shapiro's wife in The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story.

Cheryl Ladd is arguably South Dakota's most famous female celebrity.

What you may not know is that she was once Cheryl Stoppelmoor, a talented youngster born and raised in Huron. Chuck Anderson, a native Huronian himself, naturally had to find out how the town contributed to her success.

On July 8th, 1995, he got that chance.
