The Will Ferrell-Nicole Kidman film version may have been a flop, but CBS wants to try a small screen remake of “Bewitched.”
The network has ordered a script from Sony Pictures Television for a potential TV remake of the hit ‘60s show, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
The producers behind the 2005 movie – spouses Douglas Wick and Lucy Fisher - are lined up to produce the series.
Elizabeth Montgomery and Dick York (and later Dick Sargent) starred in the original series, which ran from 1964 to 1972. The story, of course, followed a suburban witch (Montgomery) married to an advertising executive (York) who couldn't help using magic in her everyday life.
Who should play Samantha and Darrin this time around?
