'Charlie's Angels' Series Steps Into Filming in Jan. 2011


The new head of ABC programming has revisited the revival project, tapping two new writers to replace Josh Friedman.

The production on "Charlie's Angels" TV revival is set in motion after a year of development. According to Deadline, Josh Friedman who wrote for the now-canceled "Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles" was initially tapped to write the pilot but ABC is now changing lane and has hired "Smallville" creators Al Gough and Miles Millar.

The plan to develop the show has been known since last November. ABC's president Steve McPherson wanted it to be fast-tracked along with four other projects, but it never went to pilot stage. McPherson then stepped down from his position and his successor Paul Lee revisited the plan and apparently is interested in the script by Gough and Millar.

It was once rumored that Drew Barrymore who portrayed one of the angels in the movie version would be involved in some way but the truth is casting director John Papsidera was only recently tapped to start some exploratory search for the leads. Deadline however reported that Barrymore would be executive producer along with Gough, Millar, Leonard Goldberg, and Nancy Juvonen.

Based on the production breakdown, there's a possibility that the series would be filmed in Miami in January 2011.
