The Good Witch of Laurel Canyon

The first thought that might enter your head after looking at this TV Guide ad for a CBS series is WTF?!?

The story behind this bizarre looking show is even stranger. Starting life as The Good Witch of Laurel Canyon, this bizarre show originally starred Kim Cattrall as the titular witch. That summer, however, Ms. Cattrall starred in Porky's, a scandalous movie featuring adult situations! CBS was scandalized and replaced Kim with Catherine Hicks, renaming the show Tucker's Witch. The show only lasted 13 episodes and also starred Alfre Woodard.
