Louis Febre has been hired to score ABC’s Miami-set TV reboot of Charlie’s Angels. The new Angels are played by Minka Kelly (Friday Night Lights), Rachael Taylor (Grey’s Anatomy) and Annie Ilonzeh (Melrose Place). Ramon Rodriguez is co-starring as Bosley. Alfred Gough and Miles Millar wrote the pilot and are executive producing. Marcos Siega (The Vampire Diaries) directed the pilot and Drew Barrymore, Leonard Goldberg and Nancy Jovoven, who were all involved in the two Charlie’s Angels feature adaptations directed by McG, are producing the project. Febre previously scored the last four seasons of the CW hit show Smallville, which was created by Charlie’s Angels showrunners Millar and Gough. Among his best known feature projects are the 2002 thriller Swimfan and the sci-fi comedy Alien Trespass. Charlie’s Angels is set to premiere on September 22, 2011 and will be airing every Thursday night on ABC. For updates on the series, visit the network’s official show website.

  1. Justin Boggan says:

    Is he scoring from the second episode on, or is he also replacing Jeff Russo’s score to the pilot?

    • I believe Febre is scoring from the 2nd episode on. (And any reshoots that might have been done on the pilot..) But from what I’ve heard, the pilot will feature Jeff Russo’s score exclusively.

  2. Gil Weisner says:

    Fabre? Really? Is he going to use cheap synth like he did on Smallville and go the cheesy obnoxious melodramatic route? Or is he going to step up his game and give us something memorable.

  3. Don J says:

    I thought Febre’s score for Smallville was great. It’s not really his fault that they weren’t able to use a live orchestra.
