Witches: Melonie Diaz will be the witch gay Mel in the series reboot
TVLine announces that Melonie Diaz (Next stop Fruitvale Station) will be one of the stars of the Witches, the reboot of the tv series aired from 1998 to 2006, in the role of Mel, a feminist with a strong will and a little bit despotic. It is a twenty-year-old lesbian, sister of Madison. After a tragic accident, Mel becomes short-tempered and sloppy, even violent, rejecting those who could help, including his girlfriend, Detective Soo Jin. Mel has the ability to stop time.
And in the course the casting for the other two protagonists, Macy's, and Madison.
The CW has ordered the pilot for the tv series reboot of the Witches that will be produced by Jennie Snyder Urman (creator and showrunner of Jane the Virgin) and from executive producer Ben Silverman. The pilot will be directed by Brad Silberling (Lemony Snicket's A series of unfortunate events).
The new screenplay, written by O'toole and Rardin, based on a subject of Urman, is set in the present. It will be “a reboot, fun, intense, and feminist from the original series, which focused on the three sisters in high school who discover they are witches. Between the battles with demons, supernatural, and the conflict with the patriarchate, and the family ties, the work of a witch never ends.”
The original series, created by Constance M. Burge, was in the cast Shannen Doherty, Holly Marie Combs, Alyssa Milano, Rose McGowan and Kaley Cuoco.
