The new television series version is to feature a serious but 'knows how to let her hair down' angel named Kate.

"" television remake is taking shape with the casting of one of the angels. Deadline reported that who stars in "" as Maya Ward, is going to be Kate, "a very smart and very athletic ex-cop and a master of martial arts."

As previously reported, the new TV series which is co-produced by will feature three new angels living in Miami to battle crimes as private eyes. Kate, Abby and Marisa are working for Charlie whose voice would be provided by Robert Wagner. Kate is said to be "the most serious of our 3 Angels but also knows how to let her hair down and have a great time."

The pilot has been ordered by ABC and the script would be provided by "" scribes Miles Millar and Al Gough. Original series producer Leonard Goldberg is also on board.

"I would imagine [the show] will probably be quite different, because the technology is quite different," Wagner offered his take. "I would imagine [I will communicate] on cell phones wherever these gals are. I could be tweeting them; I could be doing a lot of things with them."

Two more angles are yet to be cast. Barrymore, who portrayed one of the angels in the movie versions, said they are looking for actresses who are "incredibly capable, but not take themselves too seriously. That's a tough combination to find."
