Like Wonder Woman, Charlie's Angels is being revamped for the 2011 pilot season. The new show is executive produced by Drew Barrymore and stars Rachael Taylor, Minka Kelly and Annie Ilonzeh. Robert Wagner steps into the late John Forsyth's role as the voice of Charlie. 'Battle Los Angeles' star Ramon Rodriguez is set to play Bosley.
In the new version the Angel's aren't former members of the police academy, rather they're reformed criminals given a chance by Charlie to redeem themselves in his Miami detective agency.
Unlike the recent theatrical releases of the iconic series that had a light-hearted tone, the new series promises to be a 'serious' take on the source material. In an interview, writer Alfred Gough expressed his desire to avoid doing anything "campy or retro." He went on to say, "The characters are real and emotionally grounded, but they still like to have fun, wear great clothes, solve crime and kick some serious ass... we hope to surprise people and bring a whole new generation to Charlie's Angels."
