PILOTS: ABC officially greenlights ‘Charlie’s Angels’

Charliesangels...
No surprise here, as casting has been already underway: ABC has given a pilot greenlight to a new take on “Charlie’s Angels.”

“Hart to Hart” star Robert Wagner, who owns 50% of the TV show via a deal he did long ago with Aaron Spelling, is already on board as the voice of Charlie. The three major roles, however, are still being figured out.

The one-hour drama comes from Sony Pictures Television and Flower Films; “Smallville” alums Alfred Gough and Miles Millar wrote the new adaptation and will exec produce, while Leonard Goldberg, Drew Barrymore and Nancy Juvonen are also exec producing.
Barrymore is said to be taking a very active role in helping cast and mold the new version, which updates the 1970s classic and sets it in Miami.
