Though 2005's big screen adaptation of Bewitched was a flop at the box office, CBS is turning to the husband and wife team of Douglas Wick and Lucy Fisher, responsible for the reboot on that film, to bring the franchise back to television.

Douglas Wick and Lucy Fisher will executive produce this third iteration of the property, bringing Bewitched back to the small screen. Sony Pictures Television has ordered a pilot script, which will be penned by Marc Lawrence (Did You Hear About the Morgans?), also an executive producer.

It is not known what sort of shape this new version of Bewitched will take. The original featured a mortal man marrying into a family of witches, while the 2005 movie starred Nicole Kidman as a real-life witch asked to star in a reboot of the series.

Bewitched is just one of many scripts that Sony has bought early in this development season. »
