The movie universe, known to Craig Shaw Gardner fans as "the Cineverse", could be providing two new televersions on ABC. The network has ordered pilots based on the Jennifer Lopez film "Maid In Manhattan" and on "The Witches of Eastwick", which itself was based on the novel by John Updike.

'Maid in Manhattan' is supposed to be a dramedy, and it sounds like it could eventually inspire a crossover with 'Ugly Betty'. 'The Witches of Eastwick' will probably feature three novice witches younger than portrayed in the book or movie, and probably be far less misogynistic than the original book.

It's too bad Christian Slater is already locked into 'My Own Worst Enemy'; he could have gone full-court press with his Inner Jack to play the role of the Devil!

You can figure out the math on that "Witches Of Eastwick" show - "Eastwick" equals "Charmed" (three witches) plus "Reaper" (the Devil).
