Fashion Magazines will have New Angels to Write About 2011 marks the return of Charlie’s Angels to ABC. As far as introductions go, the new look of the re-imagined Charlie’s Angels cast is must have been a tough thing to do, but get it right the veteran network just may have. Starring Minka Kelly (Friday Night Lights, Parenthood), Annie Ilonzeh (Percy Jackson & the Olympians: the Lightning Thief) and Rachael Taylor (Transformers, Grey’s Anatomy). Character details remain mostly under wraps, but one of the girls may be a con artist and Mika Kelly plays an ex-Marine with weapons training. And the third ‘Angel’ is an athletic ex-cop. The series is all but locked into a spot on the ABC fall schedule. ABC network issued a new image of the crimefighting beauties in an effort to create some early buzz around the premiere of the new show and cast. Talk about fresh faces! As first impressions go, it should be safe to say that this one qualifies as fashionable. Past Charlie’s Angels always brings out the trend and is always the talk about of Fashion Magazines and the fashion world. Charlie’s Angels 3.0 will be unlike the light-hearted, physics-defying films starring Drew Barrymore, Cameron Diaz and Lucy Liu and this won’t be the vintage Charlie’s Angels. ABC promises the new show will be a “fairly serious, non-campy” version of the characters. Luckily, the series does have some real talent behind it. Smallville creators Alfred Gough and Miles Millar are executive producing and giving the pilot’s script some bling. How well it will be received from them on is still very much up in the air. Reports suggest that in this rendition of Charlie’s Angels action packed world we find ourselves suddenly in, the new girls are actually going to be reformed criminals who are offered the opportunity to make amends for their past crimes (instead of portraying police cadets like the first Angels). I would say that this is a borderline La Femme Nikita plot, but they might be able to pull it off. Like the late 1970s program, however, each episode will be a self-contained story — with a clear resolution at the end of each installment. Though certain plot elements will carry over from one week to the next. But ratings talk and everything else walks. The show may or may not gain the following it needs to keep its ABC spot. Only time will tell. Expect to see Charlie’s Angels debut sometime this fall on ABC. And expect some style and fashion tips for them too.
