ABC Eyes New Version of Charlie’s Angels


ABC is close to giving a pilot order to a modern version of the classic 1970s TV series “Charlie’s Angels,” reports Variety.

Josh Friedman, who recently adapted the “Terminator” franchise for his Fox series “Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles,” is on board to write and executive produce the new show.

Also involved are original “Charlie’s Angels” producer Leonard Goldberg, who launched the series with Aaron Spelling in 1976, as well as Drew Barrymore, who starred in and produced the 2000 film version and its sequel. Sony Pictures TV is the studio.

Friedman, Goldberg and Barrymore will executive produce with Nancy Juvonen.
