The ABC Network in the US is said to be close to greenlighting a new version of Charlie’s Angels.
America continues to look to the past for its future with the ABC Network is said to be close to greenlighting a new version of Charlie’s Angels.
The update will be helmed by Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles‘ Josh Friedman, and Leonard Goldberg, who produced the original series with Aaron Spelling in 1976, plus Drew Barrymore.
Barrymore also featured in the 2000 feature film adaptation.
The new Angels is expected to be geared toward a new generation while paying homage to the past. Maybe Ian Thorpe can play the executive?
The series made news recently following the death of iconic cast member Farrah Fawcett.
Several remakes lately have been shadows of their former glories: Knight Rider, Melrose Place, 90210, The Bionic Woman while Battlestar Galactica and V have succeeded. The latter took a 25% dip in its second week, after a strong debut.
Another Spelling title, Fantasy Island, is also getting a revival too, but as a reality show by Mark Burnett.
