Hollwyood star Drew Barrymore is making plans to bring the hit TV series

Charlie's Angeles

back to the small screen.



The 34-year-old actress has produced and starred in two film adaptations of the 1970s show and now she's breathing new life into the franchise, which launched Farrah Fawcett's career, by reviving it for TV,

Aceshowbiz

reported.



The actress is currently looking for a new trio of sexy crime fighters and insists that they must be, "incredibly capable, but not take themselves too seriously. That's a tough combination to find."



Meanwhile filmmaker Joseph McGinty Nichol, better known as McG, who directed Barrymore in her Angels films, will serve as consultant on the project and is aiming to diversify the team of secret agents.



"This is a more progressive, 2010 take on the idea. We want to be even more progressive in terms of racial background," McG said. The filmmaker has named R&B singer Rihanna as his dream Angel.
