'Bewitched' Reboot No Longer Happening at ABC

A reboot of the classic series Bewitched was announced to be in development at ABC last year, but the project is no longer moving forward.

Black-ish producer Kenya Barris was going to write and executive produce the reboot with Yamara Taylor. Variety reports that the series “would have focused on an black female witch who falls in love with a white mortal man.”

Kenya left his overall deal at ABC Studios last year right around the same time as the Bewitched news was announced. He signed a three-year deal at Netflix.

“I thought it was an incredibly smart rethink and re-telling of that story,” ABC president Karey Burke said recently. “Kenya is peerless in the television business as far as I’m concerned… [Kenya and I] decided together that the script wasn’t quite there.”
