To air on HBO Max streaming service in 2020, 'The Rules of Magic' will be focused on the characters portrayed by Stockard Channing and Dianne Wiest in the 1998 fantasy drama.

AceShowbiz - A prequel to the Nicole Kidman and Sandra Bullock film "Practical Magic" is heading to the small screen.

The 1998 fantasy drama, based on author Alice Hoffman's "The Rules of Magic" and "Practical Magic", has inspired a new series, which will air on HBO's new HBO Max streaming service next year (2020).

It will focus on three siblings growing up in 1960s New York City, who discover they are the ancestors of witches.

The original film, directed by Griffin Dunne, starred Nicole Kidman and Sandra Bullock, but the focus in the new series will be on their characters' aunts, portrayed by Stockard Channing and Dianne Wiest, as young women.

The project, titled "The Rules of Magic", has been given a 10-episode order.

HBO Max's slate for 2020 also features a new Lena Dunham-produced high school drama, titled "Generation".
