Just when his career hits an all-time low, a conceited and frustrated movie star, Jack Wyatt, gets one last shot when he's cast to do a remake of a cult TV series, Bewitched, playing the lead role of 'Darren'. In search of his leading lady, 'Samantha', the competitive, insecure Wyatt makes it pretty clear to his producers that his co-star needs to be an unknown, so as not to steal his thunder. Finally, after weeks of searching, he finds the perfect witch in the shy Isabel Bigelow, but he has no idea just how 'perfect' she really is. So, as the script for the popular show is being re-tooled to, instead, center around Darren's character, the actor Wyatt soon discovers that his increasingly annoyed new leading lady, Isabel—who begins to wreak havoc on set—is an actual witch, who can truly cast spells.
Trivia & Production Notes
- Based on the popular TV series that ran from 1964 until 1972, Bewitched tells the story of Samantha Stephens, a married housewife who performs comedic witchcraft (usually by twitching her nose) despite pleas from her mortal husband, Darrin, to stop. On the show, Samantha's relatives and Darrin's boss, among others, made frequent visits and became targets for her magic powers. Also in the series, Samantha, in her effort to be an ordinary suburban housewife, gave birth to two kids — Tabitha, who inherits some of her mother's skills, and Adam, who does not.
