    Tonight is the premiere of Charlie’s Angels, the new television show adapted from a movie franchise that had been adapted from an iconic 70s series starring Farrah Fawcett and Jaclyn Smith.
    And a new series in a new era means new agents. Minka Kelly (Friday Night Lights), Annie Ilonzeh (General Hospital) and Rachael Taylor (Grey’s Anatomy) will play the Angels this time around.
