With all the news of remakes, reboots, and adaptations lately, one has to start to wonder if maybe there’s some sort of contest we’re not privy to. Or maybe it’s just an elaborate prank. A punking. In which case, good job, soulless Hollywood executives! You totally got us!

If you thought that the stupidest remake announcement made today was that of the Bachelor Party TV show (cause, sure, that’s an idea that can sustain multiple seasons), then clearly you haven’t heard that the Bewitched remake was ordered to pilot. Here’s the official synopsis of the new show:

Coming on the 50th anniversary of Bewitched’s debut, the new version is a reimagining of the original series two generations later. It centers on Daphne — Samantha’s granddaughter and Tabitha’s daughter — a single twentysomething witch who has always used her magical powers to conjure herself the perfect life. But she soon realizes that the one thing she cannot conjure and control is the one thing she wants most — real love.

That’s for real, guys. I didn’t make it up. That character description makes Sabrina the Teenage Witch look like a sophisticated, well-rounded wicca by comparison. Way to take a classic, kickass character and reduce her to a sad loveless puppy. What are the odds we can make this all go away with a little Twitter yelling and nose wriggling, huh?
