Charlie’s Angels Reboot Gets the Boot

Minka Kelly, Rachael Taylor and Annie Ilonzeh in Charlie's Angels

Apparently hot girls in fashionable clothes kicking ass wasn’t nearly enough to lure in the requisite TV watching audience after all. Go figure.

As a result of less-than-spectacular ratings, ABC has shut down production on the reboot of the “Charlie’s Angels” TV series, with the show’s remaining episodes still scheduled to air. And then? Who knows. The fact that the network has shut down production is a pretty good sign that the show has been canceled, though it won’t be official until ABC releases a press release making it official.

The show, from “Smallville” creators Alfred Gough and Miles Millar, starred Minka Kelly, Rachael Taylor and Annie Ilonzeh as replacement Angels. The most often cited criticism against the show is that it takes itself way too seriously, a major flaw for a show about a bunch of skinny girls who are apparently masters of combat and other TV writer’s nonsense.

But the biggest lesson to take from this? When Pamela Anderson has already lampooned your genre (via the ridiculous “V.I.P.”) ten years earlier, it probably means the genre is dead. Or at the very least, not open to be taken seriously.
