THREE FUN, FEARLESS, GLAMOROUS DETECTIVES SEEK REDEMPTION IN ABC’S
NEW ACTION-PACKED TAKE ON THE 1970SHIT, “CHARLIE’S ANGELS”
Everyone deserves a second chance -- even a thief, a street racer and a cop who got in a little too deep. After all, the three women who solve cases for their elusive boss, Charlie Townsend, are no saints. They’re angels... Charlie’s Angels. Set and filmed in Miami, this fun, glamorous, action-packed take on the 1970s smash hit series introduces us to three new angels, all fearless detectives, head-turning beauties and close friends. There’s Abby Sampson (Rachael Taylor), a Park Avenue princess who became a world-class thief. Then there’s Kate Prince (Annie Ilonzeh), a Miami cop who fell from grace, losing both her career and her fiancé. Finally there’s Gloria, a disgraced army lieutenant who has a way with explosives. “Charlie’s Angels” premieres THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 22 (8:00-9:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.

Charlie persuades them to partner with Gloria’s childhood friend, Eve (Minka Kelly), a street racer with a mysterious past. They may not know each other yet, but one thing’s for sure: Abby, Kate and Eve will always have each others’ backs.
