Charlie’s Angels remake proceeds to Pilot

The new-look Charlie's Angels will be set in Miami.

ABC’s remake of Charlie’s Angels will proceed to Pilot stage.

The reboot of the classic 70s female crime-busting show will be set in Miami. These Angels are expected to be geared toward a new generation while paying homage to the past.

For several months the show has been in the hands of Smallville writer-producers Miles Millar and Al Gough took over from  Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles‘ Josh Friedman. Drew Barrymore is one of 3 producers.

Mark Piznarski (Gossip Girl) is already rumoured be Directing.

Wonder if Ian Thorpe is available to revive his Undercover Angels role and play Charlie?

Hmm. On second thoughts….

On the subject of remakes, David E. Kelley is optimistic his new Wonder Woman series will still see the light of day, despite being knocked back by some US networks.

Finally Dynasty creator Richard Shapiro has now announced a big screen prequel for his soap showing how Blake Carrington discovers he is heir to an oil fortune.

The role was made famous by John Forsythe -also the voice of Charlie in Charlie’s Angels.

  1. Most of these ‘updates’ and remakes have fallen flat. Bionic Woman was one (it was panned by Lee Majors too!). They just try to have the biggest explosions, action scenes etc etc now. If you recall the originals of these show’s they are brilliant, but mainly for the time they were (e.g the 70’s). Doesn’t anyone have original ideas anymore?

  2. They will have to be soooooooooooo careful with casting this. It will all come down to finding 3 girls who are immediately likeable and incredibly good looking.

    If any of these girls don’t measure up to the Diaz, Liu, Barrymore angels then the show will just drown in comparisons.

  3. Another reboot – obviously the ideas pool is very shallow where US TV is concerned. I guess it’s safer to use an idea that you know works and not take the risk on something new and original.
