Lifetime Orders 'Witches of East End' Pilot


Undeterred by the failure of recent witch-based programming on television (Oh Secret Circle and Witches of Eastwick, we hardly knew ye!), Lifetime has ordered an adaption of author Melissa de la Cruz's Witches of East End to pilot.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the show, "based on Melissa de la Cruzs best-selling novel of the same name, centers on the adventures of a mother and her two adult daughters --both of whom are not yet aware that they are their family’s next generation of witches-- who lead seemingly uneventful lives in Long Island’s North Hampton."

"Witches, for its part, comes from Maggie Friedman (Dawson’s Creek, Jack and Bobby), who will write and executive produce the Fox 21 project. 3 Arts Entertainment’s Erwin Stoff (The Matrix) is also attached as an EP on the project."

What do you think, can a witch show still make it on TV these days?
