Barris will write and produce the pilot alongside his black-ish producer Yamara Taylor. The network has committed to a pilot order for the series, which will represent a new take on the classic 1960s sitcom.
This project is officially the last one that Barris is to complete under his deal with ABC Studios before he is locked into an exclusive deal with Netflix. ABC has been pursuing an expansion of the series for the past five years now, looking at potential sequels shows and reboots before finally hearing Barris' pitch. It starred Elizabeth Montgomery as Samantha, a witch married to an ordinary mortal man, Darrin, and chronicles the way her powers and wicked family get in the way of her efforts to live a normal, magic-free life as a typical suburban housewife.
Bewitched originally ran for eight seasons and has remained popular all around the world thanks to syndication. Samantha's daughter Tabitha was given her own, short-lived spin-off in 1977.
Before that, the brand had been tainted courtesy Nora Ephron's 2005 movie version - a meta version, in which Nicole Kidman played a real witch who gets cast in a TV reboot of Bewitched opposite Will Ferrell. The classic sitcom also has also been embraced by new technologies with a streaming deal at Hulu.
Barris sold the idea for his Bewitched remake to ABC before he left the network. The next season of Black-ish will premiere on ABC on Tuesday, October 16 and Grown-ish will debut its second season on Freeform in January 2019.
Black-ish creator Kenya Barris is leaving ABC with one last project before heading to Netflix: a Bewitched reboot with an interracial family. She is repped by CAA, 3 Arts and Lev Ginsburg. This isn't the first time that there has been an attempt to bring the series back.
