On the heels of its decision to take Charlie's Angels to the next level, ABC has ordered two more drama pilots that are sure to skew female if ordered to series in May. The first one is Partners from Ed Bernero (Criminal Minds) that centers on two female police detectives who are fiercely loyal to one another since they're also secretly sisters.

The second one is dubbed Grace, a one-hour from Krista Vernoff (Grey's Anatomy) and Carrie Ann Inaba (yep, that Inaba from Dancing with the Stars) that focuses on a dysfunctional family set in the world of professional dance. We trust it will boast a generous sequin budget and, with any luck, a cameo or two by Maksim Chmerkovskiy.
