Inspired by the Updike novel
The Witches of Eastwick are back.
According to Variety, a pilot – penned by Dawson’s Creek scribe Maggie Friedman – has been ordered up by ABC. The take is said to be more in line with the 1987 film – starring Cher, Susan Sarandon, Michelle Pfeiffer and Jack Nicholson – itself an adaptation of John Updike’s novel.
The concept takes three women, with an assortment of dude problems, and introduces them to witchcraft. Meddling around one evening then call up the devilish Daryl Van Horne.
The road to bringing Witches to the small screen began in ’92 and, over the last decade, has seen actors, writers and directors come and go. Get a history lesson via this story.
