'PRACTICAL MAGIC casting a spell on the small screen'

I havn't been able to find any online evidence to support this, but on E! new's flash this afternoon there was a small sentence stating "Gilmore Girls's creator Amy Sherman-Palladino is developing a small-screen version of the feature film/novel 'Practical Magic' for HBO."

Has anyone else heard anything on this?

Wasn't it called "Charmed" on the WB a few years back?

Not really... nothing against 'charmed' and all, but PRACTICAL MAGIC was darker and was a lot more of a multi-generational family drama...

Was that some sort of Berrymore, Kidman and somebody else movie about 7 years ago? Can't seem to remember, but whatever it was obviously it wasn't that memorable.

You're right that the movie was terrible. But then again, how many people were thinking the same thing when a little show called Buffy the Vampire Slayer was getting ready to hit the airwaves?

Oh, and it was a 1998 film with Kidman, Sandra Bullock, Stockard Channing and Dianne Wiest.

Now I loved Practical Magic.(have it on vhs) And I do enjoy watching the show Charmed from time to time. But I say leave the original Practical Magic alone.

Yeah... it went from HBO to ABC and the producers and a bunch of the cast changed... and obviously it didn't get picked up :P... Too bad, could have been good too.
