Sony Pictures Television Reimagining Charlie’s Angels for Kids


Sony Pictures Television—Kids (SPT—Kids) and the Sony Pictures Television-backed Brazilian company Floresta have partnered to produce a reimagined version of Charlie’s Angels for kids.

The live-action Portuguese-language series is being written by Brazilian actor and writer Suzana Pires (Sol Nascente, Flor do Caribe, Os Caras de Pau). It will center around three pre-teens from different backgrounds who are selected to join a secret school of spies called the Angels Academy.

Each episode will follow the angels as they solve crimes and save the world, all while navigating their first year of spy school. It will retain the iconic brand’s core tenets of high-octane action and comedy, a mysterious boss and empowered female characters.

“We’re excited to have an opportunity to evolve this incredible Sony IP for a younger modern audience,” said Joe D’Ambrosia, executive VP and feneral manager of SPT–Kids. “We’re leaning into must-see cliffhanger storytelling, while also staying true to the original premise of the show: mystery, adventure, comedy and empowered young females who balance homework, softball practice and being teenagers all while saving the world.”

“Floresta’s fiction department was extremely excited to team on this reboot with our partners at SPT–Kids,” commented Thiago Teitelroit, Floresta’s scripted creative director. “It’s rare for franchises to have crossed so many generations never failing to entertain massive audiences. It’s a unique opportunity not only considering the market, but especially because Brazilian viewers get to explore new venues of enjoyment with such charismatic and timeless characters. And there is no one better than Suzana Pires, given her talent and exceptional contributions to empower women in the audiovisual field, to bring the new Angels to life.”

Pires added, “When Thiago Teitelroit and Sony invited me to be a part of the adaptation of Charlie’s Angels in Brazil, I could only respond with a resounding yes. We will deliver elaborate spy plots and lots of adventure with the essential touch of comedy and a narrative spin. A great Latin entertainment piece for everyone to enjoy.”
