Bravo have put a supernatural drama project into development which was written by Russo-Young and playwright Dorothy Fortenberry. “Witch Hunt” will be set in a reimagined New York City and will follow a single mother who lands a job at a leading cosmetics company only to discover that the company is actually just a cover for a coven of witches. That’s sadly all we know about it so far, so there’s no knowing how straight-faced it will play out.
The story’s tied up in a Deadline report that Bravo won’t be moving forward with the drama pilot “The Joneses,” based on the 2009 Demi Moore/David Duchovny movie of the same name, which had already been retooled for cable after being originally developed for ABC. Whether “Witch Hunt” is moving ahead thanks to the demise of that show or not, it’s good that an indie filmmaker is getting some small screen exposure, and as potentially campy as the concept sounds, we certainly wouldn’t bet against it becoming a success.
