'Awkward' Alum Sets Anti-'Charlie's Angels' Comedy at NBC (Exclusive)

Three years after ABC unsuccessfully attempted to reboot Charlie's Angels, NBC is trying another approach.

Awkward alum Annabel Oakes has set up In Security, a half-hour comedy at NBC, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

From Sony Pictures Television, In Security centers on four very un-Charlie's-Angels-like female bodyguards/private investigators whose invisibility in society makes their jobs easier — and everything else harder.

Oakes, who's currently a writer on USA Network's original comedy Sirens, will pen the script and executive produce alongside Phil Traill (Enlisted), who will direct should the project move to pilot. Kaplan Perrone Entertainment's Aaron Kaplan and Sean Perrone are also on board as EPs.

Oakes is repped by UTA and Kaplan Perrone Entertainment. Traill, who has directed episodes of Black-ish, Raising Hope and Men of a Certain Age, is with UTA, manager Josh Verney and attorney George Davis.
