The CW New Show Trailers & Clips For ‘Charmed’ & ‘All American’
The CW has picked up five new shows for next season, three of which will launch in the Autumn on the network in the “Fall” – The reboot of ‘Charmed‘, Greg Berlanti’s football drama ‘All American’, and ‘Vampire Diaries’ spin-off ‘Legacies’. The other shows – ‘In the Dark’ and ‘Roswell, New Mexico’ will launch mid-season. As ‘Legacies’ was a very late pickup, they’ve only dropped the following two trailers and clips, but it does mean you can now get your first look at the ‘Charmed’ reboot.
Charmed “First Look” Clip
This new take ‘Charmed’ comes from ‘Jane the Virgin’ creator Jennie Snyder Urman, with writers Jessica O’Toole & Amy Rardin, and is described as “fierce, funny, and feminist”. It centres on three sisters in a college town who discover they are witches after the tragic death of their mother. Between vanquishing supernatural demons, tearing down the patriarchy, and maintaining familial bonds, a witch’s work is never done.
The three sisters will be played by Sarah Jeffery (‘Shades of Blue’, ‘Wayward Pines’), Madeleine Mantock(‘Into the Badlands’, ‘The Tomorrow People’), and Melonie Diaz (‘Fruitvale Station’, ‘The Breaks’).
Mantock will play the oldest sister Macy. She is a brilliant geneticist who is practical, driven, and has her whole world turned upside down when she discovers magic is actually real. Diaz plays Mel, the middle sister. She is a lesbian and a passionate outspoken activist but loses her way following the family tragedy. Finally, Jeffery takes the role of Madison, the baby sister. She’s a bubbly college freshman and is finding this whole magic deal a huge inconvenience to her partying, and her desire to get into an awesome sorority.
All American Trailer
All American “First Look” Clip
US football drama ‘All America’ comes from uber-producer Greg Berlanti (the man behind the Arrowverse). When a rising high school football player from South Central L.A. is recruited to play for Beverly Hills High, the wins, losses and struggles of two families from vastly different worlds – Compton and Beverly Hills – begin to collide.
The show is inspired by the life of pro football player Spencer Paysinger and stars Daniel Ezra, Taye Diggs, Samantha Logan, Bre-Z, Greta Onieogou, Monet Mazur, Michael Evans Behling, Cody Christian, and Karimah Westbrook.
Again, it’s too early for UK pickups yet. However, I would expect ‘Charmed’ to find it’s way onto British screens at some point. Little harder to say with ‘All American’, although NFL is becoming more popular this side of the pond. We’ll let you know when we hear more.
