James Bond franchise

Broccoli started in the Bond franchise at the age of 22 as an assistant director on Octopussy in 1983. Soon after she had worked her way up further to become an associate producer on the film The Living Daylights in 1987. However, her most notable role was being a producer of the Bond films starring Pierce Brosnan and Daniel Craig.

Chitty Chitty Bang Bang

Following her father's death in 1996, Broccoli created the stage musical version of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang based on the 1968 musical film starring Dick Van Dyke and Sally Ann Howes. Broccoli rehired the original songwriters from the film to write the new material for the stage version. The Sherman Brothers wrote six new songs for the show which debuted on April 16, 2002. The show ran at London's largest free house, the London Palladium and was the most financially successful show to have ever played there, breaking numerous other impressive records as well. Chitty Chitty Bang Bang went on to play successfully in both the United States and throughout the United Kingdom.
