The CW has ordered a pilot for a potential of revival of drama “Charmed,” which was originally produced by Aaron Spelling and aired on The WB from 1998 to 2006. The logline: “This fierce, funny, feminist reboot of the original series 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.”
When The CW originally announced its intentions to revive “Charmed” last year, the plan was to make it a prequel to the original WB series. That has now been scrapped for this present day version.
Katie Lovejoy will also executive produce in addition to writing. Bill Lawrence will executive produce with Jeff Ingold, president of Lawrence’s Doozer Productions. Doozer will produce in association with Warner Bros. Television.
