NBC has landed the “Bewitched” sequel project shopped by Sony Pictures TV, which controls the rights to the Screen Gems classic.

NBC has given a pilot production commitment to the follow-up series, which revolves around the granddaughter of Darrin and Samantha Stephens, the couple at the center of the original series that aired on ABC from 1964-72.

The new-model “Bewitched” was penned by Abby Kohn and Marc Silverstein. It’s also shepherded by Doug Wick and Lucy Fisher of Red Wagon Entertainment. Wick and Fisher produced the 2005 “Bewitched” feature, which flopped at the B.O.

NBC’s deal for “Bewitched” following a bidding skirmish with ABC was first reported by Deadline.
