9 Story and GO-N Team Up for Bewitched Animated Series


9 Story Media Group and GO-N Productions have recently joined forces in order to develop and co-produce a new animated series based on the classic fantasy comedy sitcom, Bewitched. The partnership will include 9 Story and GO-N having control over worldwide distribution while 9 Story gets the rights to majority of merchandising and licensing for the series.

For the uninitiated, the Bewitched TV series originally aired from 1964 to 1972 on ABC, making it one of the longest running supernatural themed sitcom of its time. The story focuses on Elizabeth Montgomery as a witch who is married to an ordinary mortal, with the episodes mostly revolving around their efforts to live a normal, magic-free life. The Bewitched animated series will be reimagined and will be targeted towards a much young audience, with strong family co-viewing sensibilities.

“Bewitched is one of the most beloved television series of all time,” said Vince Commisso, president and CEO for 9 Story Media Group. “It spoke to universal messages about acceptance and diversity, and people fell in love with the characters. We are thrilled to work with GO-N to reimagine this adored classic, and bring it to new audiences worldwide.”

“The opening credits of “Bewitched” were animated: Could this have been a sign of things to come?” said Eric Garnet, producer and co-founder for GO-N. “We are thrilled to be working on the animated adaptation of this monument of popular television culture. The winning combination of magic, a thoroughly modern heroine, iconic artistic direction, sparkling wit and universal humor all remain intact. The challenge to retain and respect the precious DNA of the show is an exciting challenge that we are happy to share with the 9 Story team. We are completely under the spell and truly ‘bewitched’!”
