WHO: Jaime Ray Newman, Lindsay Price, Rebecca Romijn, Sara Rue, Paul Gross, and exec producer Maggie Friedman.
PREMISE: Lipstick Jungle meets Desperate Housewives set in Stars Hollow. Oh, and they’re witches.
4:44 pm/PST: It’s literally set in Stars Hollow: Eastwick is using the same town square set as Gilmore Girls.
4:45 pm: Holy gams! Ninety percent of the panel is comprised of Romijn and Price’s legs.
4:49 pm: Eastwick is very different than the 1987 movie Witches of Eastwick. Except the title is essentially the same. And both feature Veronica Cartwright. And both are about magic. And…
4:50 pm: Friedman concedes that the series “will have winks to both the book and the movie.”
4:53 pm: Sara Rue’s sidekick character may exhibit “certain powers in the future.”
4:56 pm: E.P. Friedman just broke month-old news! Cybill Shepherd will appear in “multiple episodes.”
5:01 pm: Romijn gives good quote: “It’s nice to play a woman again after trannies and mutants.”
5:02 pm: Price says her Eastwick alter ego is “more like me than any character I’ve ever played. She’s a nerd, she’s awkward. I adore every cell of her.”
Coming up next: The V panel.
