‘Bewitched’ Reboot From Kenya Barris in the Works at ABC

ABC has been pursuing an expansion of the series for the past five years now, looking at potential sequels shows and reboots before finally hearing Barris' pitch.

He will also write the show alongside Yamara Taylor. Barris' departure from ABC comes amid speculation the writer was at odds with the organization after a controversial National Football League kneeling protest focused "Black-ish" episode was tabled.
