Bewitched

Synopsis: Out in California's San Fernando Valley, Isabel is trying to reinvent herself. A naïve, good-natured witch, she is determined to disavow her supernatural powers and lead a normal life. At the same time, across town, Jack Wyatt a tall, charming actor is trying to get his career back on track. He sets his sights on an updated version of the beloved 1960s situation comedy Bewitched, re-conceived as a starring vehicle for himself in the role of the mere-mortal Darrin. Fate steps in when Jack accidentally runs into Isabel. He is immediately attracted to her and her nose, which bears an uncanny resemblance to the nose of Elizabeth Montgomery, who played Samantha in the original TV version of Bewitched. He becomes convinced she could play the witch Samantha in his new series. Isabel is also taken with Jack, seeing him as the quintessential mortal man with whom she can settle down and lead the normal life she so desires. It turns out they're both right--but in ways neither of them ever imagine

I'm gonna be mean.

Hit me. There you go.

You're the Jackerator, baby.

Let's go. Let's go. Come on.

Yo, gentlemen.

How are you? Oh!

- Hey, hello.

- Jack Wyatt.

- Hi, I'm Jack.

- Oh. Huge fan. Huge.

- How are the kids, guys?

- Great.

Good. Well, let's cut the chitchat.

- Thank you. I'm Jack, by the way.

- Nina.

- Jack wants to do the show.

- That's great.

- I wanna do it.

- That's great. That's terrific.

He only has one concern.

We had the same concern.

But we think everyone's forgotten

about Last Year in Katmandu.

Unless they saw it.

His concern is...

...the witch has all the fun.

You will be fun.

We're changing it from the original.

Whoa, whoa, whoa. Don't all go crazy.

Okay? I mean, it is Bewitched.

I mean, Samantha should be strong.

Right? This should be a two-hander.

Oh, my God. Huh?

Hey. What a relief.

I was worried because Larry told me

you'd want to tilt the show toward you...

Stu, Stu.

We gotta have a great ensemble

is what I'm thinking. You know?

Endora, the next-door neighbors,

all those crazy family members.

Who's gonna play Uncle Arthur? Huh?

I used to love Uncle Arthur.

Well, we're looking for Uncle Arthur.

- Your table's ready.

- Thank you.

I don't know if you remember...

...but when he'd appear in the mirror,

it would crack. It would always crack.

And you knew it was coming,

and yet, every time it happened...

...I laughed and I laughed

and I laughed.

- Can I talk to you?

- I loved it.

"Hi, Sammy."

One second, fellas. We'll meet

you guys at the table, all right?

Hey, I like those guys. What?

- You're being a pussy.

- What?

You're being a pussy, pussy, pussy!

No, I'm not!

I want the show to be good.

You want the show to be...

You know what?

Jack Wyatt's doing TV now

because his film career ate it!
