I suppose it was inevitable that The Witches of Eastwick would find its way back in front of our eyeballs at some point. The original is a pretty damn good film, and whenever that happens, there’s always someone in Hollywood looking to sequelize and/or remake it.
This time, out, it’s more the latter than the former, with ABC ordering a “Witches of Eastwick” TV show pilot that will be penned by “Dawson’s Creek” writer Maggie Friedman according to Variety. This isn’t the first time it’s been attempted either; in 1992 NBC had a pilot for a “Witches” show, and ten years later Fox tried their hands at it as well, both to no avail.
Perhaps this latest attempt will finally come to fruition? Only time will tell. For those who’ve not see the 1987 movie based on the John Updike novel (for shame!), it followed a trio of women who utilize witchcraft to get rid of the men in their lives, eventually conjuring up a devilish character who seduces all three.
We’ll keep our ears open for more on the new show and let you know when we hear it!
