Prepare to be enchanted along with Roxie, Kat and Joanna! In the seaside village of Eastwick, three very different women are about to discover some bewitching talents they never knew they had. And once they get together -- watch out -- on “Eastwick,” premiering WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 23 at 9pm on ABC 4!
There was a time when Roxanne, Kat and Joanna didn’t get along because of their preconceived notions of each other. Roxie was the extrovert artist, Kat the overworked wife and mom, and Joanna the wallflower local reporter. But after a weird encounter in the park and a few martinis, these three women have suddenly become fast friends. Together, they wish for their lives to change. An unknown power within each of them is suddenly unlocked, bringing them together and changing each of their lives. And that’s when the mysterious and wealthy Darryl Van Horne arrives in town. He helps them discover their unique powers in ways they never could have imagined. But by igniting their hearts’ desires, he might just be opening Pandora’s Box.
The locals become understandably curious about just who Darryl Van Horne is. Among the curious is Joanna’s co-worker and best friend, Penny. Then there’s Bun, the head of the Eastwick Historical Society and the fun and kooky aunt that Roxie and her teen-aged daughter, Mia, never had, who may hold a key to Darryl’s real identity. Meanwhile, Joanna’s longtime crush, Will, and Kat’s layabout husband, Raymond, become unintentional targets for the ladies’ newfound powers.
Based on John Updike’s celebrated classic and the popular movie, “Eastwick” is brimming with romance, mystery and dangerous charm, offering a tempting vision of the ultimate wish-fulfillment fantasy.
“Eastwick” stars Ashley Benson as Mia Torcoletti, Jon Bernthal as Raymond Gardener, Veronica Cartwright as Bun Waverly, Jaime Ray Newman as Kat Gardener, Lindsay Price as Joanna Frankel, Rebecca Romijn as Roxanne (Roxie) Torcoletti, Sara Rue as Penny Higgins, Johann Urb as Will St. David and Paul Gross as Darryl Van Horne.
