ABC has given series orders to Eastwick, based on The Witches of Eastwick, from scribe Maggie Friedman, and for V, a re-imagining of the 1980s miniseries about an alien invasion, from Scott Peters (The 4400), according to The Hollywood Reporter.

V is expected to be presented as a 13-episode limited-series event, the trade paper reported.

Previously, it was reported that ABC had ordered Flash Forward, a sci-fi series based on Robert J. Sawyer's novel.

ABC officially announces its fall schedule on Tuesday.
