ABC has put in a script order for a new TV series based on the supernatural movie The Witches of Eastwick.  The pilot will be written by Dawson’s Creek writer Maggie Friedman.

This marks the third attempt at a TV version of the 1987 film (and book of which it was based), which starred Jack Nicholson, Cher, Susan Sarandon and Michelle Pfeiffer.  In 1992, Warner Bros. TV commissioned writers Carlton Cuse and Jeffrey Boam to develop The Witches of Eastwick for NBC and in 2002, Fox developed a version along with Warner Bros. TV titled Eastwick, from excecutive producer Jim Leonard and writers Jon Cowan and Robert Rovner.
