CHARLIE'S ANGELS (ABC) - Robert Wagner is set to reprise his role of the voice of Charlie in the drama pilot, a modern take on the "Angels" set in Miami. Alfred Gough and Miles Miller penned the hour, which is set up at Sony Pictures Television and Flower Films. The pair are executive producing alongside Drew Barrymore, Leonard Goldberg and Nancy Juvonen.


GARFUNKEL & OATES (HBO, New!) - Comedians Kate Micucci ("Raising Hope") and Riki Lindhome ("Enlightened") are set to team for a potential comedy at the pay channel based on their Garfunkel and Oates' musical comedy act.

They'll also executive produce with Principato-Young's Jonathan Stern.


GRACE (ABC, New!) - Krista Vernoff ("Grey's Anatomy") has booked a pilot order from the Alphabet for "a dysfunctional family drama set in the world of professional dance." "Dancing With the Stars" judge Carrie Ann Inaba is executive producing the hour alongside Vernoff for ABC Studios.


PARTNERS (ABC, New!) - Edward Allen Bernero ("Criminal Minds") has likewise snagged a pilot commitment from the network for "a police drama centered on two female police detectives who are fiercely loyal to one another since they're also secretly sisters." ABC Studios is producing.


THE VOICE (NBC) - Carson Daly ("Last Call with Carson Daly") is reportedly in talks to host the upcoming talent competition, in which "singers will be mentored by music industry professionals, compete weekly in front of a panel of coaches, and America will decide which singer will be worthy of the grand prize." John De Mol and Mark Burnett are behind the project, which is set up at Warner Horizon Television.
