In the seaside village of Eastwick, three very different women are about to discover some bewitching talents they never knew they had. And once they get together -- watch out -- on "Eastwick," premiering WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 23 (10:00-11:00 p.m. on the ABC Television Network.

"Pilot" -- There was a time when Roxanne, Kat and Joanna didn't get along because of their preconceived notions of each other. Roxie was the extrovert artist, Kat the overworked wife and mom, and Joanna the wallflower local reporter. But after a weird encounter in the park and a few martinis, these three women have suddenly become fast friends. Together, they wish for their lives to change. An unknown power within each of them is suddenly unlocked, bringing them together and changing each of their lives. And that's when the mysterious and wealthy Darryl Van Horne arrives in town. He helps them discover their unique powers in ways they never could have imagined. But by igniting their hearts' desires, he might just be opening Pandora's Box.

The locals become understandably curious about just who Darryl Van Horne is. Among the curious is Joanna's co-worker and best friend, Penny. Then there's Bun, the head of the Eastwick Historical Society and the fun and kooky aunt that Roxie and her teen-aged daughter, Mia, never had, who may hold a key to Darryl's real identity. Meanwhile, Joanna's longtime crush, Will, and Kat's layabout husband, Raymond, become unintentional targets for the ladies' newfound powers.
