Among the most enduring TV sitcoms of all time, “Bewitched” remains beloved nearly sixty years after its debut. The supernatural housewife witch Samantha Stephens on Bewitched always had a trick up her sleeve. Elizabeth Montgomery was brilliant in her role as the nose twitching spellcaster for eight seasons earning five Emmy Award(R) nominations. Elizabeth Montgomery: A Bewitched Life shows the magic behind the hit sitcom that ran from 1964-1972 and its star whose real life was far from enchanted as she grappled with growing up in the shadow of her disapproving famous father Robert Montgomery. Narrated by Erin Murphy who played Samantha’s daughter Tabitha on “Bewitched,” the special also features new interviews with Richard Dreyfuss, who recalls his fifth ever onscreen role as a shapeshifting warlock and Nancy Kovack who discusses the palpable tension on set while shooting the pilot.
