Charlie's Angels actress Rachael Taylor has compared the show to both 24 and Sex and the City.

The ABC reboot's executive producer Al Gough related Taylor's comparison to reporters at the recent Television Critics Association press tour.

"Rachel had the best description of, 'If [24 lead] Jack Bauer and [Sex and the City character] Carrie Bradshaw had a love child, it would be Charlie's Angels'," Gough explained.

Co-producer Miles Millar also insisted that the new Charlie's Angels will be more "emotionally resonant and less cartoony" than the '70s original.

"We looked back at the history and what worked for the TV series and film series and brought enough freshness and originality to it," he claimed. "We wanted our Angels to feel more dimensional to a modern audience, particularly those on ABC. That was very important to us."

Gough agreed: "We wanted to make these women feel real. When you launch a TV series, the success comes in following characters that make you want to come back... each week."

Charlie's Angels premieres on September 22 on ABC and will air on E4 in the UK.
