Always the Panic Spreader
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.

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. ABC’s Charlie’s 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.

||Instead of remaking things badly, why not just give up and go into full time syndication with shows that worked? The same amount of energy expended without the embarrassment.|
