Variety reports that the major network has ordered a pilot for a one-hour drama called Rules of Magic, based on the novels Rules of Magic and Practical Magic by Alice Hoffman.

Set in 1960s New York City, the series follows three troubled siblings — Franny, Jet and Vincent Owens — who struggle with “abnormalities” that have kept them isolated.

They soon learn that they are, in fact, descendants of a bloodline of witches.

While the brother was not present in the iconic 1998 flick, sisters Franny and Jet were played by Stockard Channing (Rizzo from Grease) and Broadway legend Dianne Wiest.

The OG movie also starred Sandra Bullock and Nicole Kidman as Franny and Jet’s witchy nieces Sally and Gillian.

Although the flick was panned by critics and lost dosh, grossing at $68.3 million worldwide which was less than its $75 million production budget, over time it went on to become something of a cult classic.

It’s mostly renowned for its stellar soundtrack, boasting the likes of supreme witch Stevie Nicks, Joni Mitchell, Elvis Pressley and Faith Hill, as well as for setting hair goals for girls everywhere from that point on.

I mean, just check out those lush locks:

Definitely the result of some strong-ass potion

Also, I’d be remiss for not mentioning the Midnight Margaritas scene where the sisters and their aunts brew a batch of cocktails and dance around their mystical kitchen to ‘Coconut’ by Harry Nilsson.
