ABC has given a pilot production commitment to a half-hour single camera comedy reboot of classic sitcom “Bewitched” which ABC Studios and Sony Pictures Television will produce.
The new take reimagines the story as one featuring a bi-racial couple. The original 1960s series starred Elizabeth Montgomery as a witch with magical powers who marries an ordinary mortal man, Darren.
“Black-ish” creator Kenya Barris generated the reboot earlier this year prior to his departure for Netflix where he now has a $100 million three-year agreement. Barris will still write and executive produce the project with Yamara Taylor. John Davis and John Fox will also executive produce.
