Diaz will play Mel, one of the three witch sisters. The character is described as a passionate, outspoken activist who loses her way in the wake of family tragedy.
Diaz was seen in the 2013 biographical drama Fruitvale Station opposite Michael B. Jordan, based on the true story of Oscar Grant III, a 22-year-old who was fatally shot by Bart Police in the morning hours of New Year’s Day 2009. The film won the Grand Jury Prize and the Audience Award at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival.
Her other recent film roles include “The Belko Experiment,” which was written by “Guardians of the Galaxy” writer-director James Gunn. She is also set to star in the upcoming film “The First Purge.” On the TV side, Diaz has appeared in shows like “The Breaks,” “Room 104,” and
Charmed 2.0 — which is being shepherded by Jane the Virgin’s Jennie Urman, Jessica O’Toole and Amy Rardin — is being billed as “a fierce, funny, feminist reboot” centered on “three sisters in a college town who discover they are witches.
Blain will play Galvin, who is described as “the ideal boyfriend — funny, mellow, in touch with his emotions, totally on board to follow his lady across the country for her dream job. An aspiring filmmaker, he has yet to catch the break he’s sure is just around the corner.”

The new Charmed is described as a “fierce, funny, feminist reboot of the original series which centers on three sisters in a college town who discover they are witches. Between vanquishing supernatural demons, tearing down the patriarchy, and maintaining familial bonds, a witch’s work is never done.”
Let’s be honest: With all this talk of the Charmed reboot — which many fans, and even one of the original show’s stars, are actively trying to vanquish — it’s hard not to get nostalgic about the show that started it all. And when you look back at its 178 episodes, you start to notice things you didn’t before, including how many famous faces crossed paths with the Halliwells.

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle‘s Ser’Darius Blain, whose small-screen credits include Survivor’s Remorse and Jane by Design, has been cast in the pilot for The CW’s reboot, our sister site Deadline reports. Blain will play Galvin, the aspiring filmmaker boyfriend of Macy, one of the yet-to-be-cast sisters. (To his credit, Galvin is actually described as the “ideal boyfriend.”)
Other roles still to be cast include Macy’s sisters — Mel and Madison — as well as Madison’s ex-boyfriend, Mel’s girlfriend and
By adding two more hours to the network’s schedule (8 p.m. to 10 p.m. Et), The CW will program 12 hours of original scripted fare in-season — likely more than Fox in the fall, which will devote at least seven of its 15 hours to sports (and a few more hours toward reality fare).
“We’re increasing our scheduling by 20 percent,” The CW president Mark Pedowitz said. “That’s a big-sized bite. We will do this with the same quality programming we do on Monday through Friday, on Sunday nights.”
Sunday is already a competitive night for networks, with some of
That means the network will now offer 12 hours of primetime series each week, up front 10. And unlike the last time The CW expanded its slate — in the late ’00s, when Sunday was outsourced to Media Rights Capital and gave us the likes of Valentine and Easy Money — this time Sunday nights will be programmed by the network itself.
The move bodes well for
The five networks have collectively ordered 74 pilots, with 45 of those being dramas and 29 comedies. In 2017, the networks also ordered 74 pilots total, with 41 of those being dramas and 33 being comedies. 2017 was also down approximately 16 percent from the 88 pilots ordered in 2016.
Multi-camera comedies, whose imminent destruction has been trumpeted for several years, made a major resurgence this year. Of the 29 comedies ordered to pilot, 16 are multi-cams. That is more than double the seven multi-cams ordered to pilot in 2017. The move to more multi-cams is not surprising, as the format is typically less costly than single-camera comedies at a time when networks are looking to reduce costs.
Reboots, revivals, and adaptations also remain hot commodities across broadcast. CBS has ordered pilots for new versions of “Cagney and Lacey” and “Magnum P.I.” as well
TVLine reported the casting breakdowns of three sisters in a college town who suddenly discover they are witches. Among the sisters is Mel Pruitt who is dating female Detective Soo Jin.
Mel is also a “strong-willed feminist” who experiences a tragic accident that leaves her angry and unable to deal with her emotions, which might cause some problems with her time-freezing abilities.
Madison Pruitt is Mel’s younger sister who is “horrified” to learn of her witch abilities — hearing people’s thoughts.
TVLine has obtained the casting breakdowns for The CW’s in-the-works Charmed reboot, and they reveal that the three familial leads bear the unofficial names Macy, Mel and Madison. As previously reported, the new series — penned by Jane the Virgin scribes Jessica O’Toole and Amy Rardin— is set in the present day and is described as “a fierce, funny, feminist reboot” centered on “three sisters in a college town who discover they are witches.
“I use language to pierce the brain,” she said. “If I spoke like everybody else spoke, it would just dull everything. I might just know what I’m talking about.”

She spent the first stage of her acting career contending with performances that restricted her potential and simmered with silent rage against the misogynistic industry that put her on the map.
