ABC announced its new Fall 2011 schedule this morning, and it will be adding many new shows to its lineup. Two that immediately caught my eye were Charlie’s Angels and Once Upon a Time.
The original Charlie’s Angels series was such a pop culture phenomenon that during its first year, guys everywhere hung Farrah Fawcett posters on their walls, and girls all got her hairstyle (yes, I had those wings for years). This new Charlie’s Angels is a big, loud, fun take on the 1970’s smash hit. It will air Thursday nights at 8pm ET/PT before Grey’s Anatomy. Meet the cast and characters:
There’s Abby (Rachael Taylor) a Park Avenue Princess who became a world-class thief. Then there’s Kate (Annie Ilonzeh), a Miami cop who fell from grace, losing both her career and her fiance. Finally there’s Gloria, a disgraced army lieutenant who has a way with explosives. When one of the angels’ missions ends in Gloria’s tragic death, Charlie persuades them to partner with Gloria’s childhood friend, Eve (Minka Kelly), a street racer with a mysterious past.

Once Upon a Time
A new series from Lost’s Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis, Once Upon a Time, where fairytales and the real world collide. Jennifer Morrison (House, HIMYM) is Anna Swan, an ordinary 28 year old, until she discovers she’s a lost princess destined to save her world from darkness. Once Upon a Time also stars Ginnifer Goodwin (Big Love) as Snow White/Sister Mary Margaret.
Check out a preview of Once Upon a Time and let me know if you don’t say WOW!
As a true Lost fan, I can’t wait for this series to begin. Anything coming from an ex-Lost writer is worth trying and this looks truly amazing. Once Upon a Time will air on ABC on Sunday nights at 8pm ET/PT right before Desperate Housewives. It looks like a great television series for the entire family.
