HBO have announced a Practical Magic prequel and laaaaads, it'll be class

Excellent news all round.

Way back in the 90s, Sandra Bullock and Nicole Kidman came together to give us the spell-fuelled, curse dominated, family feud fantasy that we deserved.

It was Practical Magic, and although it didn't receive the critical acclaim it so deeply warranted, it became a cult hit among those of us who love a bit of drama, sex, and casting spells.

Delightful viewing all round to be honest, and we're about to get even more of it in due time because HBO have announced that they're doing a prequel to the movie - and it's set in the 1960s.

Divine.

According to Variety, the prequel will be called Rules of Magic and will be based on Alice Hoffman's book of the same name.

The one-hour drama series will focus on Jett and Frances, the aunts Bullock's and Kidman's characters are sent to live with in the original 1998 movie.

"Set in 1960s New York City, the series follows three troubled siblings—Franny, Jet, and Vincent Owens—who wrestle with 'abnormalities' that have kept them isolated," reads the synopsis.

"But the tumultuous times unearth the extraordinary discovery that they are, in fact, descendants of a bloodline of witches.

"The two sisters will become the revered, and sometimes feared, aunts in 'Practical Magic,' while their brother will leave an unexpected legacy."

Intrigued? You should be.

The series has also been written by none other than Jessica Jones creator Melissa Rosenberg too, so you know the scripts are going to be fairly tight - and the drama entirely heightened.

Not a whole lot else has been revealed about Rules of Magic just yet, but if we know anything about reboots (and we do, unfortunately), it's looking quite likely that we could be getting a little cast reunion at some point.

Or maybe not. That's complete speculation, tbh.

Everything We Know About The Rules of Magic, the Practical Magic Prequel TV Series

by Get Literary | September 16

Candles and potions in a dark room

It’s about that time of year where we all start gushing over Practical Magic. We hang up our string lights, we make some hot cocoa, and we snuggle up with our fur babies to watch sister witches Sandra Bullock and Nicole Kidman learn about their family’s curse and develop their knack for witchcraft.

In case you didn’t already know, Varietybroke the news that HBO Max is preparing a one-hour drama pilot based on Alice Hoffman’s books Practical Magic, and the prequel, The Rules of Magic. There’s still no news on a release date, so you best believe we’ve been rereading the tales of the Owens family, including Magic Lessons (out October 9), which tells the origin story of the curse!

Here’s the scoop on everything else you need to know about the upcoming TV adaptation:

The plot of the series will be based on the events of Rules of Magic and Practical Magic.

The prequel novel The Rules of Magic takes place in 1960s NYC, following the story of siblings Franny, Jet, and Vincent. Thanks to the Owens family curse, they must follow strict rules (no walking in moonlight, no red shoes, etc.) and they’re forbidden from falling in love. But when they visit their Aunt Isabelle, in a small Massachusetts town, they begin to understand the truth of who they are. Over the years, the siblings grow up and learn how to live with the curse–Franny and Jet become the aunts we know and love from the Practical Magic movie (played by Stockard Channing and Dianne West)–and their brother Vincent’s legacy takes an unexpected turn.

Alice Hoffman has also signed on as one of the executive producers for the show. Read the comments on this twitter thread for some fun ideas on who should play charismatic Vincent!

Melissa Rosenberg has signed on to write and executive produce via Tall Girls Productions. Melissa is also the creator of Jessica Jones, screenwriter for all of the Twilight movies, and writer and executive producer for Dexter.

A writers’ room is being set up for a 10-episode first season. Writers include Dana Baratta, who also wrote for Dawson’s Creek and Jessica Jones.

We’re standing by for more casting and release news. Stay tuned! We’ll update this post with any new information we learn.

In the meantime, check out all of Alice Hoffman’s backlist for equally delightful, magical vibes that will soothe your soul.

The Rules of Magic

The Rules of Magic

by Alice Hoffman

For the Owens family, love is a curse that began in 1620, when Maria Owens was charged with witchery for loving the wrong man.

Hundreds of years later, in New York City at the cusp of the sixties, when the whole world is about to change, Susanna Owens knows that her three children are dangerously unique. Difficult Franny, with skin as pale as milk and blood red hair, shy and beautiful Jet, who can read other people’s thoughts, and charismatic Vincent, who began looking for trouble on the day he could walk.

From the start Susanna sets down rules for her children: No walking in the moonlight, no red shoes, no wearing black, no cats, no crows, no candles, no books about magic. And most importantly, never, ever, fall in love. But when her children visit their Aunt Isabelle, in the small Massachusetts town where the Owens family has been blamed for everything that has ever gone wrong, they uncover family secrets and begin to understand the truth of who they are. Yet, the children cannot escape love even if they try, just as they cannot escape the pains of the human heart. The two beautiful sisters will grow up to be the memorable aunts in Practical Magic, while Vincent, their beloved brother, will leave an unexpected legacy.

Magic Lessons

Magic Lessons

by Alice Hoffman

In an unforgettable novel that traces a centuries-old curse to its source, beloved author Alice Hoffman unveils the story of Maria Owens, accused of witchcraft in Salem, and matriarch of a line of the amazing Owens women and men featured in Practical Magic and The Rules of Magic.

Where does the story of the Owens bloodline begin? With Maria Owens, in the 1600s, when she’s abandoned in a snowy field in rural England as a baby. Under the care of Hannah Owens, Maria learns about the “Unnamed Arts.” Hannah recognizes that Maria has a gift and she teaches the girl all she knows. It is here that she learns her first important lesson: Always love someone who will love you back.

When Maria is abandoned by the man who has declared his love for her, she follows him to Salem, Massachusetts. Here she invokes the curse that will haunt her family. And it’s here that she learns the rules of magic and the lesson that she will carry with her for the rest of her life. Love is the only thing that matters.

I consider Practical Magic to be one of the greatest (and perhaps underrated) Halloween movies around. So the news that HBO Max—the yet-to-launch streaming service that will also be home to Friends once it leaves Netflix—is developing a prequel is extremely good news. The story of sisters Sally (Sandra Bullock) and Gillian Owens (Nicole Kidman) who are born with magical powers they try to avoid—until they can't—is the perfect mix of comedy, drama, romance, and horror. Oh, and it features some extremely great hair.

Variety reports that the streaming platform has ordered a pilot for the one-hour show called Rules of Magic. It will center around siblings Jet, Franny, and Vincent Owens who have “abnormalities that have kept them isolated." They soon discover that they are descended from a line of witches.

Here's everything we know so far.

The source material is based on a book. The series will be based on the Alice Hoffman novels Rules of Magic and Practical Magic, the latter of which was also adapted for the 1998 movie.

The setting won't be Massachusetts, where the 1998 film mostly took place. According to the Variety report, Rules of Magic will be set in 1960s New York City.

There's a strong connection to the movie. Fans of Practical Magic, of course, remember Kidman and Bullock's magically powerful aunts, played by Dianne Wiest and Stockard Channing. Rules of Magic is basically the Franny and Jet origin story. As for their brother, Varietysays he will leave "an unexpected legacy."

The series' writer has a history of developing strong female characters. Per Variety, the show will be written and produced by Jessica Jones creator Melissa Rosenberg.

The release date and cast are still unknown. The show is still in preproduction, so it's unclear at this time when it will premiere—or who will be playing the main roles.

This post will be updated as new details emerge.

HBO Max Sets 'Practical Magic' Prequel From 'Jessica Jones' Writer

The Owens clan rides (on their broomsticks) again.

HBO Max has ordered three new pilots as part of its push to line up original programming ahead of its 2020 launch date. Among the new pilots ordered is one from Jessica Jones scribe Melissa Rosenberg, which adapts author Alice Hoffman's novel, The Rules of Magica prequel to Practical Magic. Oh, does that latter title ring a bell? That may be thanks to the fact Practical Magic was adapted into a 1998 movie starring Nicole KidmanSandra BullockStockard ChanningDianne Wiest, and Aidan Quinn.

The Rules of Magic is getting a whole new life for the up-and-coming streaming service. It's doubtful any of the original cast will return for The Rules of Magic but who cares? Surely HBO Max will whip up an interesting group of actors in their casting cauldron when the time is right. According to Deadline, The Rules of Magic has received a 10-episode order, with each episode running one hour. While the series will likely begin with the events of the prequel novel, Deadline's report implies the plot of Practical Magic will be woven into the series, too.

Many of us are familiar with Practical Magic thanks to its movie adaptation, but what about the story for The Rules of Magic, which is likely unknown to us? Thankfully, Deadline's report notes the story is "an epic generational family drama set in 1960s New York City" that focuses on the Owens siblings: Franny, Jet, and Vincent (Franny and Jet were played by Channing and Wiest, respectively, in Practical Magic). The siblings "wrestle with 'abnormalities' that have kept them isolated." As the story progresses,

"Tumultuous times unearth the extraordinary discovery that they are, in fact, descendants of a bloodline of witches. In their aspirational journey towards self-discovery and self-acceptance, they’ll contend with grief, war, bigotry and dark magic, not to mention a centuries-old curse designed to keep them away from love. The two sisters, Franny and Jet, will become the revered, and sometimes feared, aunts in Practical Magic, while their beloved brother Vincent will leave an unexpected legacy."

The Rules of Magic pilot was just one of three pilots ordered by the streaming service. Additional pilots are Generation and Red Bird LaneGeneration sees Lena Dunham signing on as an executive producer on a Euphoria-meets-Skins-like series about a group of suburban teens exploring their sexuality in a deeply conservative community. Red Bird Lane follows eight strangers who arrive at an isolated house for different reasons and quickly discover something terrifying waiting for them.

HBO Max's latest additions to its original programming slate will no doubt entice a large swath of prospective subscribers. The service is set to launch in 2020.

For the Owens family, love is a curse that began in 1680, when Maria Owens was charged with witchery for loving the wrong man.

Hundreds of years later, in New York City at the cusp of the sixties, when the whole world is about to change, Susanna Owens knows that her three children are dangerously unique. Difficult Franny, with skin as pale as milk and blood red hair, shy and beautiful Jet, who can read other people’s thoughts, and charismatic Vincent, who began looking for trouble on the day he could walk.

From the start Susanna sets down rules for her children: No walking in the moonlight, no red shoes, no wearing black, no cats, no crows, no candles, no books about magic.

Yet, the children cannot escape love even if they try, just as they cannot escape the pains of the human heart. The two beautiful sisters will grow up to be the memorable aunts in Practical Magic, while Vincent, their beloved brother, will leave an unexpected legacy.

Alice Hoffman delivers “fairy-tale promise with real-life struggle” (The New York Times Book Review) in a story how the only remedy for being human is to be true to yourself. Thrilling and exquisite, real and fantastical, The Rules of Magic is “irresistible…the kind of book you race through, then pause at the last forty pages, savoring your final moments with the characters” (USA TODAY, 4/4 stars).

Praise

"Reading an Alice Hoffman book is like falling into a deep dream where senses are heightened and love reigns supreme. The Rules of Magic is no exception.”
Jodi Picoult, New York Times bestselling author of Small Great Things

“Hoffman delights in this prequel to Practical Magic as three siblings discover both the power and curse of their magic. Hoffman’s novel is a coming-of-age tale replete with magic and historical references to the early witch trials. The spellbinding story, focusing on the strength of family bonds through joy and sorrow, will appeal to a broad range of readers. Fans of Practical Magic will be bewitched.”
Publishers Weekly starred review

“The Owens sisters are back—not in their previous guise as elderly aunties casting spells in Hoffman’s occult romance Practical Magic (1995), but as fledgling witches in the New York City captured in Patti Smith’s memoir Just Kids… No one’s more confident or entertaining than Hoffman at putting across characters willing to tempt fate for true love.”
Kirkus Review

“I was enraptured by this fabulous book, which is filled with magic and charm.”
Terri Smith, Library Reads

“Hoffman’s writing is frank, tender, vivid, and elusive all at once. Full of sorrow and beauty and courage, The Rules of Magic is a delicious, satisfying read.”
Heather Herbaugh, Mitzi’s Books, Rapid City, SD, Indie Next List

“I got so swept up in this enchanting story and I can’t wait for you all to start reading it!”
Reese Witherspoon

“This is the kind of book you race through, then pause at the last 40 pages, savoring your final moments with the characters.”

‘Practical Magic’ Prequel Among Three HBO Max Pilot Orders

HBO Max is continuing to build up its original programming slate with three new projects.

Variety has learned that the nascent streamer has given pilot orders to the half-hour dramedy “Generation” and the hour-long drama “Red Bird Lane,” as well as a pilot production commitment for the one-hour drama “Rules of Magic.” All three projects hail from Warner Bros. Television.

“Rules of Magic” is based on the novels “Rules of Magic” and “Practical Magic” by Alice Hoffman. “Practical Magic” was previously adapted into a film in 1998 starring Sandra Bullock and Nicole Kidman.

Set in 1960s New York City, the series follows three troubled siblings — Franny, Jet and Vincent Owens — who wrestle with “abnormalities” that have kept them isolated. But the tumultuous times unearth the extraordinary discovery that they are, in fact, descendants of a bloodline of witches. The two sisters will become the revered, and sometimes feared, aunts in “Practical Magic,” while their brother will leave an unexpected legacy.

“Jessica Jones” creator Melissa Rosenberg will write and executive produce via Tall Girls Productions, her first project under her new overall deal with WBTV. Dana Baratta will also write and executive produce, with Denise Di Novi and Nina Tassler of PatMa Productions and Hoffman also executive producing. HBO Max is currently setting up a writers’ room for the series with a 10 script order.

Rosenberg is repped by UTA and 3 Arts Entertainment. Baratta is repped by UTA and Circle of Confusion.

“Generation” was created by Zelda Barnz, the 17 year old daughter of Daniel and Ben Barnz. Zelda will serve as the writer and co-executive producer on the project, which follows a group of high school students whose exploration of modern sexuality (devices and all) tests deeply entrenched beliefs about life, love and the nature of family in their conservative community.

Daniel will co-write with Zelda in addition to directing. Daniel and Ben will executive produce under their We’re Not Brothers Productions banner, with Lena Dunham also executive producing. Marissa Diaz will produce.

Ben and Daniel are repped by WME and Lichter Grossman. Zelda is also repped by Lichter Grossman.

“Red Bird Lane” is a YA morality and psychological horror series about eight strangers who arrive at an isolated house—all for different reasons—and quickly realize that something sinister and terrifying awaits them.

Sara Gran will write and executive produce. John Wells and Erin Jontow of John Wells Productions will also executive produce, with Dan Halsted serving as consulting producer.

Gran is repped by Manage-Ment and attorney Ryan Nord.
