Charlie’s Angels Set To Return To The Small Screen
Charlie’s Angels debuted in 1976 and ran for five seasons making fashion icons and sex symbols of stars Farrah Fawcett, Kate Jackson and Jaclyn Smith. Women clamoured to get the famous Fawcett “flip” and men plastered posters of the stars on their walls.
Then in the early 2000s Drew Barrymore, Lucy Liu, and Cameron Diaz took over the roles as a new team of beautiful butt-kickers in the movie version of the tv series. The movie was a popular, if slightly tongue in cheek, success and spawned a sequel in 2003. It also revitalized Demi Moore’s career, who had a small but important role in the film. This was the first time we had seen her and her incredible new body in a number of years.
Now, the beautiful crime-fighting trifecta has been reincarnated for Generation Y. Premiering on Thursday evenings Charlie’s Angels brings back original producer Leonard Goldberg. Former Angel Drew Barrymore will act as executive producer on the new show. As with the original series, three former bad girls (this time played by relative unknowns Annie Ilonzeh, Minka Kelly and Rachel Taylor) are brought together by the reclusive Charlie Townsend (voiced this time around by Robert Wagner). ABC promises the series will have “more action, more eye candy and more heart than ever before.” Series revamps can be a gamble because they end up being compared to the original, such as last years Hawaii 5-0, but if done right Charlie’s Angels could be quite heavenly.
