TV Bites: Hello Again, Charlie


· ABC is gambling on another '80s remake by ordering a pilot for an updated Charlie's Angels. Josh Friedman (Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles) will write and executive produce, alongside the original Angels producer, Leonard Goldberg, and Drew Barrymore. Sony Pictures, who tried unsuccessfully to revive the franchise for TV in 2004, will house the project. If ABC pays proper homage to the original Aaron Spelling series, tweens can finally stop crediting Cameron Diaz for the pointed finger gun pose. [USA Today]

An Arrested Development star scores a pilot, Hayden Panettiere explores the medical field and more TV Bites after the jump.

· While waiting for the mythic Arrested Development script to drop from the Frozen Banana Stand in the Sky, Jeffrey Tambor is slated to co-star in NBC's Rex Is Not Your Lawyer pilot. Tambor will play a psychiatrist afflicted with anxiety disorders, who treats Rex, a top Chicago litigator, played by David Tennant. [THR]

· Congratulations are in order for Hayden Panettiere, who is making her co-producing debut with the CW's upcoming HMS, an hourlong drama about a group of students at Harvard Medical. The project, in development now, is being written by Mystic Pizza writer Amy Holden Jones. Annabeth Gish should also be available. [THR]

· Two clips from the Oprah-Sarah Palin sit down have surfaced, both monumentally disappointing compared to yesterday's Oprah segment with the chimp attack victim. In the first, the former Alaska governor admits that even she was disappointed with her Katie Couric interview last year. In the second, Palin skirts the issue of whether Levi Johnston will be carving her turkey. [Reuters]

· Minnie Driver is the latest star to jump aboard ABC's breakout hit Modern Family. [EW]

· Let's play the over/under game: Will Lady Gaga wear over/under 25 feet of dress during this Monday's Gossip Girl performance of "Bad Romance?" Answer below. [People]

  • FrancoisTrueFaux says:

    I wouldn't buy Hayden Panettiere as a med student, let alone as a producer on a show about med students. I smell arbitrary credits!

  • I keep myself pretty busy at school and my part time job...but one thing I have found to try and make my "work" and no fun environment a little better is to spice up my PC with a new background every now and again. I do it for my iphone as well (use to have android and did it with that as well). I always figured if I couldn't actually be at the beach, at least I could see it. Anyway, I get mine from They have over 10,000 wallpapers and any size you can image, for your phone, tablet, mac or PC...its all there.
