Get bewitched with Eastwick
No brooms and top hats required for the modern day witches of Eastwick. Unique characters, addictive storyline and mysterious happenings conjure a series that’s not to be missed. The 13-episode pilot series will be aired at 11.00 p.m. till midnight on Saturdays, starting 6th August, only on ntv7.
In the rustic suburban village of Eastwick, there live three seemingly ordinary women who possess unique personalities and lead very distinctive lives. Roxanne "Roxie" Torcolleti (Rebecca Romijn), an uninhibited artist and a financially-challenged single mom, Kat Gardener (Jayme Ray Newman), a frustrated wife and an overworked mother of five, and Joanna Frankel (Lindsay Price), a shy and subdued newspaper reporter, are suddenly brought together through a strange encounter at the town park. Different they may be from each other, they quickly learn that all of them have one common yearning – to experience change in their lives.
Incidentally, a charismatic yet enigmatic man named Darryl Van Horne (Paul Gross) arrives in town determined to make their wishes come true. With Van Horne's help, Roxie, Kat, and Joanne soon discover their extraordinary talents and harness them to fulfill their innermost desires. As these enchanting women unleash their magical powers, Eastwick, once peaceful and idyllic, is never quite the same.
An adaption of John Updike’s novel, The Witches of Eastwick, and popular 1987 movie of the same title, the series continues to have a cult following. While the series itself is shortlived, the supernatural drama is a favorite for fans of the occult. The pilot episode, which achieved 8.53 million viewers in the U.S., has remained as the highest viewed telecast on ABC at the Wednesday 10pm hour since September 2009, with the second episode, "Reaping and Sewing", a close second. The premiere episode also became one of the highest-viewed pilots of a supernatural series based on witches, even beating cult favorite Charmed (7.70 million viewers). In August 2010, it was "pick of the week" in The Times, where the journalist speculated the show would get a cult following.
Eastwick also stars Ashley Benson as Roxie's daughter Mia, Jon Bernthal as Kat's husband Raymond, Johann Urb as Joanna's boss Will, Sara Rue as Roxie's best friend Penny, and Veronica Cartwright as Bun Waverly, the head of the Eastwick Historical Society. Created by Maggie Friedman for the small screen, the ABC dramedy is produced by Warner Bros. Television. Acting as executive producer along with Friedman is David S. Rosenthal.
