Charmed: Melonie Diaz Cast As A Lead In CW Reboot Pilot


Deadline is reporting that Melonie Diaz has been cast as one of the female leads in CW’s reboot pilot of Charmed.

 

The reboot pilot is described as a fierce, funny, feminist reboot of the original series focusing on three sisters in a college town who discover they are witches. Between vanquishing supernatural demons, tearing down the patriarchy and maintaining familial bonds, a witch’s work is never done. The pilot is written by Jessica O’Toole and Amy Rardin, with Jennie Snyder Urman on board as the creator/showrunner.

 

The original Charmed series, set in San Francisco, focused on the Halliwell sisters, Phoebe, Prue and Piper. They were also known as The Charmed Ones, who use witchcraft and their combined ‘Power of Three’ to protect innocent lives from evil beings such as demons and warlocks. Later audiences were introduced to the Halliwell’s half-sister Paige Matthews.

 

Melonie Diaz (whose credits include Fruitvale Station, The Belko Experiment and The Breaks) will be playing the role of Mel, one of the three sisters, a passionate, outspoken activist who loses her way in the wake of family tragedy. Diaz joins recently cast Ser’Darius Blain who will be playing Galvin, the boyfriend of Mel’s sister Macy.

 

Brad Silberling will be directing the pilot, whilst serving as Executive Producer along with Ben Silverman.
