Premiering in 1964, the television show “Bewitched” told the story of a bi-species couple made up of a witch and a human being, and how just a wiggle of a nose could make magic happen.
Fast forward more than fifty years, and talk is that this beloved show is ready for a comeback. According to Deadline Magazine, the show is soon to get a remake by ABC Network featuring an interracial blended family this time.
According to the Deadline exclusive, the couple will ‘struggle to navigate their differences as she discovers that even when a black girl is literally magic, she’s still not as powerful as a decently tall white man with a full head of hair in America.’
This is just one of the many attempted reboots of the classic American sitcom, which originally starred Elizabeth Montgomery and Dick York. Recently, Erin Murphy, who played “Tabitha” on the hit show talked about working with Montgomery on the set.
“She and I are very, very much alike,” Murphy says in the Fox News interview. “She had a really dirty sense of humor and so do I! She was just one of those people who was so beautiful, but she wasn’t afraid to look silly –kind of like Lucille Ball… They could be really campy and funny. There was no fear there.”
