‘Black-ish’ creator Kenya Barris most recently made headlines for a highly publicized departure from ABC, which was followed by the signing of a multi-million dollar Netflix deal. But, before he brings his exclusive content to the streaming service, he reportedly sold ABC a reboot of classic television comedy series, ‘Bewitched’…with a twist.
“In Bewitched, written by Barris and Taylor, Samantha, a hardworking black single mom who happens to be a witch, marries Darren, a white mortal who happens to be a bit of a slacker. They 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.”
The project is helmed by Barris and writer/producer Yamara Taylor. As of time reported, no casting announcements or tentative premiere date have been revealed.
