Aug. 24 (UPI) -- ABC has handed out a pilot production commitment to a reboot of classic 1960's sitcom Bewitched from black-ish creator Kenya Barris.
The reboot will be a half-hour comedy based on the original series which followed witch Samantha as she attempts to live a normal life with her mortal husband Darren. The new version will present the leads as an interracial couple with Samantha as black single mother who is married to Darren, a white male who is a slacker.
Samantha, in the reboot, is said to discover that despite being magical, her white husband holds more power in America as a tall, white male with a full head of hair.
Barris, who is also behind black-ish spinoff grown-ish on Freeform and upcoming Freeform comedy Besties, recently signed a multi-year deal with Netflix to develop new series exclusively for the streaming service.
