Her bracelet is the Witchblade, an amulet that has been worn by remarkable women throughout history, and Sara is next in line." Carol Mendelsohn Productions' Carol Mendelsohn and Julie Weitz, Circle of Confusion's Rick Jacobs and Dave Alpert and Top Cow's Marc Silvestri and Matt Hawkins will also executive produce for Sony Pictures Television.
