Charlie's Angels is being remade for ABC
The deadly remake virus sweeping Hollywood has reached into television, past the 1980s (re: V) and into the '70s, where Charlie's Angels is the latest victim ready to be ruined for prime time, Variety says. Weren't the movies bad enough?
The 1976-81 Aaron Spelling series will be adapted for ABC by Josh Friedman, the guy who was responsible for the ill-fate Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles. So, he obviously knows how to modernize a classic franchise, right?
Original Angels producer Leonard Goldberg and movie-version star and producer Drew Barrymore are on board to lend a hand (and some cash). Maybe this version will have the same fate as a failed 2004 bid, but we doubt it: those angels are very resourceful.
