ABC is hoping to conjure up some magic - and ratings - with The Witches of Eastwick.

The Alphabet has greenlit a new series based on the 1987 film of the same name, Variety reports.

No word yet on the cast, but chances are slim for Jack Nicholson, Cher, Michelle Pfeiffer and Susan Sarandon to reprise their roles from the movie, which is based on the John Updike novel about three women who turn to witchcraft to rectify their futile love lives. As a result, a devil (Nicholson) is conjured and tries to seduce all three.

ABC's venture marks the third time networks have attempted to adapt the flick to the small screen. Carlton Cuse, now of Lost, first tried in 1992 for NBC, and 10 years later, Lori Loughlin, Marcia Cross and Kelly Rutherford were tapped for Fox's Eastwick, which centered on the trio's sons.

Dawson's Creek scribe Maggie Friedman will pen the pilot script. - Joyce Eng
