First Look: The Babes of the New Charlie's Angels

When it comes to reboots of classic franchises, I don't like them. Give me originality over repackaging any day!

But if remakes must be made, networks should at least choose classic shows that involve hot chicks. Enter ABC's reimagining of the classic '70s program Charlie's Angels. Along with NBC's Wonder Woman, Charlie's Angels is one of the most high-profile pilots being created for the upcoming fall season. And just like we did with Wonder Woman, it's time to pass judgment on the show based on one promotional picture.

Above, you see (from left to right) former General Hospital star Annie Ilonzeh as Kate, Aussie actress Rachael Taylor as Marisa, and Friday Night Lights' Minka Kelly as Abby. I see what looks like a women's shampoo commercial.

Charlie's Angels is pretty much a lock to make it on ABC's schedule this fall. And with former Smallville showrunners Alfred Gough and Miles Millar taking control of the show, it may also be good!


It's never too early to ask: Which of the Angels above is your favorite? Also: Ladies, what is up with Taylor's outfit? Is that actually in style?

I will watch this show, just hope it does not get cancelled, and if it does, I hope it has an ending. Hate to start shows to be left hanging...

Great idea Dragonsi... I love the ""Well, this is all your department..." line!

I'll second XGalt's comment. Fastlane was soooo awesome. This looks awful.

Now what are the chances all 3 are completely straight? Nowadays, it's perfectly reasonable to have bi and gay characters and this should be no exception. I think they'll get great ratings if they have an early episode of a lesbian suspect, and Charlie asks one girl to go undercover as a potential date for her, and say..... both Abby and Kate turn to Marisa and laugh and say, "Well, this is all your department, you're elected!" Since they both already know about her and act nonchalant about it. And there is no mention of who Charlie will be played by. Is Sean Hayes or Richard SImmons currently available?

Puleeeeze!!!!! We need this like a remake of Happy Days!
Maggie Q-Grace Park, the 2 hottest!!!

The only way I'd watch this was if McG was running things. That dude knows how to make three annoying chicks watchable and his sense of action is just what a show like this needs. God I miss Fastlane.

Terrible clothes. Why they are strolling down the road? are they looking for johns? Shouldn't be an action series? Anyway I'm not gonna watch (another remake... lame!)

am I the only one that thinks those clothes are crap? especially Marisa looks like hell... I guess they must be undercover detectives at a party or smth. but they really don't need to be quite that flashy... but what do I know? I'm just someone who's not going to watch this show unless they make it more real. these barbie dolls seem to have nothing in common with the show. maybe they'll be investigating lipstick theft or some other similar crimes...

There are two ass-kicking women on TV at the moment, Maggie Q and Lyndsey Fonseca, and from the little I know about this Charlie's Angels reboot, it's going to stay that way. I fear Charlie's Angels are going to flop as much as Wonder Woman will.

It should be a small hit, however, it looks like it has all the ingredients to be a big flop also...

Hottest babes are Maggie Q and Grace Park! Nuff said!

Rachel Taylor is awesome and HOT as for Minka Kelly, Annie is not bad either

NOTHING WRONG WITH THE PHOTO the show will survive

This must really be a bad photo because I just don't find these women attractive, I mean they're just not Charlie's Angels material. I don't think this show will survive, maybe three or four episodes will air before it's canceled.

Two whites and a token black. That should ensure a hit.

Charlie's 2 dogs and 1 angel. Better show name for these 3.

the only one i really like is minka kelly (only cuz of FNL and parenthood) she is ridiculously pretty, curious to see how she's gonna handle the role of ass-kicking female. rachel taylor i'm not fussed on, don't really like her that much in grey's and the third i have never seen before having never seen an episode of general hospital.

I'll give it three episodes before they realize the ratings are just too bad, and they decide to cut the first season short and air the first 10 episodes. Don't get me wrong, I'd love to see shows like this one succeed. Why wouldn't I want to see more beautiful women on screen kicking ass? I'm looking forward to seeing Adrianne Palicki in a skin-tight Wonder Woman suit and I want to see Annie, Rachael and Minka on screen too. I don't want to have any preconceived notions about shows like this one. The women look beautiful, different from the first version, but still beautiful. But I have to be realistic. What are the odds that the show turns out good? A show like Charlie's Angels can only be a success once, after that the novelty wears off. There is no way this show will succeed, unfortunately.

I know Rachel Taylor only because of her latest recurring role on Grey's Anatomy - she is good. This outfit is terrible on the other hand.

Minka Kelly is awesome!

"With the guys behind Smallville taking control of the show, it may be good!"

No thanks. I'll just ignore this and wait for it to go away. It should only take a few episodes.

Yeah this won't last long either. Note to all studios, no more reboots please. Thank you.

I've watched Annie I. on GH. She is not a good actress. I don't see this show lasting long. The only way it will is because of Minka.

I will reserve judgement for later because when it comes to re-imagining old TV shows you never know if you are gonna get Battlestar Galactica or Knight Rider.

It's hard to say which is my favorite yet. I'd have to taste them first :)

I'm watching for Rachael Taylor hands down. She's awesome on Grey's Anatomy. Minka Kelly is only a plus.

i've never seen an episode of General Hospital (and don't remember her on the episode of How I Met Your Mother) so i don't know what Annie Ilonzeh is like, but Rachael Taylor has been alright on her Grey's Anatomy appearances, but i'm with CurlyMC, if i ever watch it it'd be because of Minka.

I'm 90% sure I won't be watching, but the only thing that could bring me in, would be Minka. So I agree Minka Hands down.

Minka Kelly, hands down. And at least she can act, as Friday Night Lights proved pretty clearly.
