CBS Twitches Nose, Orders 'Bewitched' Script
Douglas Wick and Lucy Fisher, the producers behind the 2005 Will Ferrell-Nicole Kidman film, are on board to produce.

by Lesley Goldberg

CBS could be in the market for a Darrin.

The network has ordered a script from Sony Pictures Television for a potential remake of Bewitched.

Miss Congeniality scribe Marc Lawrence has been tapped to pen the script and executive produce. Husband-and-wife team of Douglas Wick and Lucy Fisher who produced the 2005 feature film starring Will Ferrell and Nicole Kidman will produce through their Red Wagon shingle.

The script order for Bewitched joins a growing number of classic TV series returning back to the small screen. ABCs Charlies Angels also from Sony Pictures Television -- will premiere in September, and CBS Hawaii Five-O returns for its second season in the fall.

Bewitched ran for eight seasons on ABC, from 1964 to 1972 and starred Elizabeth Montgomery as Samantha, a witch who marries Darrin, a mortal (Dick York and later Dick Sargent), and attempts to become a typical suburban housewife.
