Even with a couple of big screen adaptations already out there it looks like the venerable Charlie’s Angels franchise is going to be rebooted yet again. Only this time, it will be back on the small screen where it all started and ABC has chosen the writing team to make it happen.
Former Smallville executive producers Alfred Gough and Miles Millar are taking over writing duties on Angels, which ABC is developing for a potential pilot order and midseason launch. The dynamic duo will replace Josh Friedman, who initially was hired to adapt the project but obviously isn’t working out.
Gough and Millar created and launched Smallville and then ran it for seven seasons before leaving the show in 2008. Even with the addition of these two, the rest of the Angels creative team remains the same, which includes the movie’s producers Drew Barrymore, Leonard Goldberg and Nancy Juvonen.
Not that we necessarily need another Charlie’s Angels (nor do we probably need a reboot of Hawaii Five-O or Rockford Files but it seems we may get one of those too), but it might be fun. Plus, these two guys are pretty talented and have shown they can develop a show, get it launched and carry it a long way. Let’s hope they can inject some of the same into their new project.
