‘Bewitched’ Reboot Rolled To Off-Cycle By ABC

  • Deadline
There will be no Bewitched pilot at ABC this pilot season but the high-profile reboot centered on an interracial blended family is not dead at the network.

New ABC Entertainment president Karey Burke and her team opted to roll the project to off-cycle development to do more work on the script with the same creative team, which includes Black-ish creator Kenya Barris, in his last sale to ABC before moving to Netflix for a rich overall deal, Black-ish writer/producer Yamara Taylor, ABC Studios; Sony Pictures TV, which has the rights to the title; and Sony-based Davis Entertainment (The Blacklist).

Bewitched was bought by Burke’s predecessor at ABC, Channing Dungey, with a big pilot production commitment which I hear involved a $2 million penalty. It explored casting before ultimately being rolled.

Deadly Blessing Blu-ray Review

Director: Wes Craven

Running Time: 104 Minutes

Certificate: 15

Extras: Interview With Wes Craven, Retrospective On Michael Berryman’s Career, Deadly Desires, Audio Commentary, Trailer

Wes Craven is often seen as a horror icon thanks to his films Last House On The Left, The Hills Have Eyes, A Nightmare On Elm Street, and Scream. Buried away among such classics is a forgotten film which many have never heard of, Deadly Blessing.

Deadly Blessing takes place in an Amish-like community, run by a religious group known as the Hittite. As described by one character “they make the Amish look like swingers.” Jim Schmidt has recently been expelled from the group due to his marriage to an outsider the Hittite refer to as an ‘Incubus’; a devil that seduces you in your sleep.

Deadly Blessing Blu-ray review

Review Ryan Lambie 19 Mar 2013 - 06:54

One of Wes Craven's less prominent early movies makes its Blu-ray debut. Here's Ryan's review of the 1981 horror, Deadly Blessing...

In the early 1970s, Wes Craven made the leap from academic to filmmaker, working at the sleazier end of the movie industry with director and producer Sean S Cunningham on films with titles like Together, Honey Pie and Hot Cookies. It was with his horror films The Last House On The Left (1972) and The Hills Have Eyes (1977) that Craven became recognised as a director in his own right, and their shocking subject matter and violence gained him a considerable amount of notoriety among critics and censors.

Although Craven continued to dabble in exploitation cinema after The Hills Have Eyes (he served as cinematographer on The Evolution Of Snuff in 1978), the end of the 70s saw him gradually shuffle towards the mainstream; 1978's Stranger In Our House
