Reimagining of WB series will center on four sisters who use their witchcraft for good
Get ready for more witches on TV. Possibly.
CBS is developing a reboot of the WB series “Charmed,” an individual with knowledge of the project told TheWrap on Friday.
The project, as first reported by Vulture, so far consists of a script deal, with no pilot or broadcast commitment as of yet, but is billed as a reimagining of the original series centered around four sisters who discover their destiny – to battle against the forces of evil using their witchcraft.
Chris Keyser (“Party of Five”) and Sydney Sidner (“The Rite”) are writing the project, with Keyser executive producing and Sidner co-executive producing.
The Tannenbaum Company is executive producing the project, with CBS Television Studios producing.
Witches have been a hot property this television season, with Lifetime’s “Witches of East End” and FX’s “American Horror Story: Coven.”
