Witches: the CW ordered the pilot of the reboot of “feminist”
Deadline announces that 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. They join Jessica O'toole and Amy Rardin as screenwriters and co-executive producers. The pilot will be directed by Brad Silberling (Lemony Snicket's A series of unfortunate events).
Last year, the station had tried to revive the Witches with a screenplay that was set in 1976, and three new witches as protagonists. The project stranded because Jennie Snyder Urman was too busy with Jane the Virgin.
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.
