Hot Shots! Charlie's Angels Swing Into Action

Although only in the pilot production stage, TV’s new Angels already are turning heads.

The cast of ABC’s new take on the seminal 1970s series Charlie’s Angels has been spotted filming scenes, giving gawkers a first gander at the trio of not-unattractive private eyes (as well as yes, you too, Bosley).

Penned by Smallville‘s Alfred Gough and Miles Millar, who are executive-producing with Leonard Goldberg (of the original TV series), Drew Barrymore (from the pair of feature films) and Nancy Juvonen, the new, Miami-based Charlie’s Angels stars Minka Kelly (Friday Night Lights) as Eve, Rachael Taylor (Transformers) as Abby, and Annie Ilonzeh (General Hospital) as Kate.

Ramon Rodriguez (Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen) plays a very different kind of Bosley, while Robert Wagner (Hart to Hart) will voice Charlie, whose Townsend Agency is seen in the background of several of these shots.

    MINKA KELLY! That’s all that it takes to keep me watching this amazing show.

  2. Ben says:

    I’m actually hoping this doesn’t get picked up as I want Rachael Taylor to stay in Grey’s Anatomy. Such a shame we know another Karev relationship is doomed from the start. Also the show needs a new OB/GYN regular.

    • jules says:

      Grey’s Anatomy absolutely does NOT need anymore characters. There are way too many to begin with. The show could cut back to its original cast for all I care – plus Callie, Mark and Lexie.

      • dee says:

        Well then they would have to loose Callie, Mark and Lexie since none of them were part of the original cast!!! Bring back George O’Malley!!!

        Cancel PP and bring back Addison!!

    • cosmogirlaz says:

      I agree! I loved her in transformers. super sexy… than was excited to see her on greys. she was only with us for a short time :( who wants to see yet another try at charlies angels?

    I just want to know if this show follows the continuity of the original series and movies. I probably won’t watch if it doesn’t.

  4. Bee says:

    can’t wait for this. they all look AMAZING.
    love minka and rachael (who cut her hair!)

  5. Abie says:

    This looks like they could be filming a classic style “Once upon a time there were three little girls…” opening credits sequence. Think, “but I took them away from all that. Now they work for me,” as they walk through the doorway all laughing and happy. I hope they can pull it off. The original show was pretty creaky story-wise, but there was no stopping the charisma of the original Angels, and Cheryl Ladd was pretty hot too.

    • Matt Webb Mitovich says:

      Best I recall, the new ANGELS are not police academy cadets/types, but, like, pulled from other walks of life.

    • belen pk says:

      shelley hack was fah-bulous! if nothing else, those publicity pics of the show with her are such fashion photograpy classics and glamour perfectly realized. shelley herself was pretty and funny (too bad the show was already declining when she joined it). and anyone remember the desperate attempt at casting softporn performer tanya? she was good for those steamy videos, at least. oooppps, those were not part of “angels”???

    i’m not sure about what i think of this new series, but i will certainly take a look..

  7. Michael Sacal says:

    To paraphrase Marge Simpson in the episode set in the future where Lisa got married, “the 21st Century turned into the 1970s so gradually, that I barely noticed”.

    Seriously. With revivals of Charlie’s Angels, Wonder Woman, a Superman origin movie, and rumors of a Hulk TV show, the 21st Century looks a lot like the 70s.

  8. JR says:

    I SWEAR Minka Kelly and Leighton Meester are the SAME person.

  9. Kiki says:

    As a fan of the wonderful and talented Connie Britton, I get really really really mad with all the attention Minka Kelly gets. If there’s an actress from FNL who should be on the spotlight, that would be Connie.

  10. Brock says:

    I’m keen. C’mon ABC. Perfect for 8pm Thursdays. :)

  11. Kevin says:

    Can’t wait for the new Charlie’s Angels reboot on ABC. Minka Kelly, Rachael Taylor and Annie Ilonzeh are always stunning and gorgeous and ready to kick into high gear. Please ABC pick up this reboot for the fall it could do the same thing with Hawaii Five – O on CBS.

  12. Kevin says:

    The real reason I can’t wait for the reboot of Charlie’s Angels is the NEW and IMPROVED Angels (Minka Kelly, Rachael Taylor and Annie Ilonzeh) and of course Ramon Rodriguez as the Mexican – American Bosley. The character is ALWAYS funny and really cracks me up just like the original TV series and the movie version with Bill Murray and the late great Bernie Mac.
