Jaime Ray Newman is one of the witches of Eastwick

Jaime Ray Newman has landed one of the three leads in ABC's drama pilot Eastwick, based on John Updike's The Witches of Eastwick; Veronica Cartwright, who co-starred in the 1987 feature film also based on the book, was cast in a supporting role, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Loosely based on the theatrical feature, Eastwick follows three young witches who come into their powers. Newman (Made of Honor) will play Kat, a good-natured nurse and a mom of five kids.
