ABC Picks Up ‘Charlie’s Angels’

Charlie's Angels Original TV ShowIf I could sigh in text this is where I would do it. Here we have it folks, another old TV show turned movie turned back to a TV show. ABC is to blame for this one; a remake of the 70s classic, Charlie’s Angels. Wait did I miss something, or didn’t Drew Barrymore and Cameron Diaz kill that with Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle?

Even so, the network is determined to bring the one-hour drama to the small screen, pulling the Angels out of Los Angeles and them in Miami for this reincarnation. It shouldn’t come as much of a surprise that the film adaptation’s driving force, Barrymore is behind this version, serving as executive producer. Maybe the show will be a whole mess of action and girl power, but I have a hard time believing it will last more than a season. We’ve already got three iconic ladies in these roles in the 70s and modern versions thanks to Barrymore, Diaz and Lucy Liu; I really doubt there’s room for more here.

Celebrity Editor Kelsea Stahler was born in a pile of dirt. Okay, she was actually born in an old Naval hospital in San Diego, which then became a pile of dirt and remained as such for a number of years before becoming a parking lot perfectly sized for circus tents, and finally a museum. She eventually left San Diego to attend New York University, where she studied Journalism and English literature — two less-than profitable liberal arts degrees about which guidance counselors warned her. Against all odds, she now resides in Brooklyn, where she fights the constant fear that the locals will soon discover she isn’t quite cool enough to live there, and makes a living writing absurd, pop culture features about Batman, zombies, vampires, funny people, and Ron Swanson.
