ABC greenlights 'Charlie's Angels' remake, NBC shelves 'Rockford Files' for now

charlies-angels-logo-320.jpgPilot season is starting to grind into gear at the networks. Some of the latest developments:

ABC has given the official go-ahead to a pilot for a remake of "Charlie's Angels." The new one will be set in Miami, and "Smallville" creators Al Gough and Miles Millar will write the pilot script. Drew Barrymore, who starred in and produced the two "Angels" movies in the early 2000s, and her partner Nancy Juvonen are among the exec producers. Additionally, one casting hurdle may already be cleared: Robert Wagner is reportedly supplying the voice of Charlie. [ EW/ Vulture]

NBC isn't going forward with its prospective "Rockford Files" remake -- at least not at the moment. The network shot a pilot with Dermot Mulroney as Jim Rockford last spring, didn't pick it up and gave it back to "House" creator David Shore to rework. His duties on "House" didn't leave him enough time this development season to revise the script. [ Deadline]

FOX's first comedy pilot order of 2011 is called "I Hate My Teenage Daughter." It's a multi-camera show about two women whose daughters have become the types of girls who tormented the moms when they were in high school. Sherry Bilsing-Graham and Ellen Kreamer ("The New Adventures of Old Christine") are writing it. [ Deadline]
