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

And he's not even the clear star

of his own show.

Jack, screw Uncle Arthur.

Hell, screw ensembles, man.

- I'm being a pussy.

- Yes.

If this show tanks, you'll be on

Hollywood Squares for 10 years.

You will also be the mayor

of Pussytown.

I don't wanna be the mayor

of Pussytown.

Get in there and be

the sheriff of Ballsville.

- All right?

- Okay.

- Bring it.

- Okay.

Let's go.

- Stop that.

- Sorry, sorry.

Sorry, guys, where were we?

Couple of big names are available

for Samantha.

- To hell with that.

- Yeah.

I want an unknown in the lead.

All right?

A hot new face that's gonna look good

and set me up.

Because I have worked my ass off

to the bone for too long...

...to build up the brand value

of the name Jack Wyatt!

- This show has one star.

- And I want three trailers.

Nobody in television

has three trailers.

He wants them, you get them.

And I want my own makeup team

in matching jumpsuits.

And a leopard!

I want a pet leopard.

With a diamond-studded collar.

Real diamonds.

- That's enough, Jack.

- And a cake.

A two-story-high cake.

Every Wednesday's Cake Day.

And we're gonna bring it out...

...and we're gonna pretend

it's a surprise.

Because it's Cake Day.

We get it, Jack.

If we have a leopard, we're gonna

have major insurance issues.

We're willing to give

on the leopard.

It's getting hard to breathe.

- Should I be writing this down?

- No.

So this should be fun. Huh? Right?

I used to have the biggest crush on

Elizabeth Montgomery when I was 10.

- We all did.

- The nose. I mean...

It's not gonna be easy finding

a nobody to play Samantha.

Be the sheriff.

Well, Jack Wyatt says

get it done, y'all.

Hey, I'm turning on the sprinklers

in my front yard.

Dimming up.

Dimming down.

Dimming up.

Dimming down.
