ABC Developing Remake of 'Charlie's Angels' TV Series

ABC is working on a remake of the classic 1970s 'Charlie’s Angels'.

Drew Barrymore, Nancy Juvonen and Leonard Goldberg, all of whom made up the three producers of the two 'Charlie's Angels' movies, are on board to executive produce.

Josh Friedman, who adapted 'Terminator' for Fox's 'Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles' is slated to write and produce.

ABC Entertainment President Steve McPherson is said to be extremely high on the project and is close to officially giving it the green light for a pilot.

The original series, about three women who work for a private investigation agency, aired from 1976 to 1981. It originally starred Kate Jackson, Farrah Fawcett-Majors, and Jaclyn Smith, however, Majors and Jackson both eventually left the show for other projects.

Fawcett was replaced by Cheryl Ladd and Jackson was replaced by Shelley Hack. Another change came in the final season when Tanya Roberts replaced Hack,

It was regarded as one of the first shows to showcase women in roles traditionally reserved for men. But the format had its critics with complaints that the show had no substance and viewers were only tuning in for the scantily and provocatively dressed Angels.

Farrah Fawcett didn't skirt around the issue when asked about it in an interview during the show's peak: "When the show was number three, I figured it was our acting," she said. "But when it got to be number one, I decided it could only be because none of us wears a bra."
