The CW is looking to bring back one of the signature drama on predecessor the WB. The network has ordered a script for Charmed, a reimagining of the original Aaron Spelling series. The new show will be set in 1976 and feature a new trio of witches.
The reboot hails from the team behind the CW’s dramedy Jane the Virgin — creator/executive producer Jennie Snyder Urman, executive producer Ben Silverman, writers/co-executive producers Jessica O’Toole and Amy Rardin, the pilot’s director Brad Silberling and studio CBS TV Studios.
The new Charmed will be written by O’Toole & Amy Rardin based on a story by the duo and Snyder Urman. The trio will executive produce with Silverman through Propagate Content and Silberling who is set to direct.
