Dynamite Entertainment's final NYCC announcement for today is that they've partnered with Sony Pictures Television to produce a new Charlie's Angels comic book series to premiere in 2018.
Based on the Ivan Goff and Ben Roberts series that started in 1976, the comic series would be based on the characters and look created in the five-season run. The series followed the crime-fighting adventures of three female detectives working for a Los Angeles based agency led by the mysterious and unseen Charlie Townsend.
Charlie's Angels has become an iconic symbol of powerful, determined women and made stars out of Farah Fawcett, Jaclyn Smith, Kate Jackson, Cheryl Ladd, Tanya Roberts and Shelly Hack. In the early 2000s there were two Charlie's Angels films featuring Cameron Diaz, Lucy Liu and Drew Barrymore. There is talk of another reboot being led by Elizabeth Banks and rumored to be eyeing Kristen Stewart and Lupita Nyong'o for two of the new Angels.
Nick Barrucci, CEO and Publisher for Dynamite Entertainment, said of the partnership:
"We could not be more excited to have the opportunity to work with the team at Sony Pictures Television, the premier name in television programming for decades. The team at Dynamite all grew up watching the adventures of these strong female role-models, and we're proud to present the upcoming Charlie's Angels comic book series to an entirely new generation of fans!"
This is just an initial announcement — no creative teams or schedules have been released. But we'll keep you updated as new information becomes available.
