Each time the words “magic” and “television” are spoken or heard in any conversation, it is most likely the discussion will center around Elizabeth Montgomery and her classic 1960s sitcom, Bewitched. Montgomery, who will forever be remembered as Samantha “the witch-with-a-twitch” Stephens, died tragically from cancer on May 18, 1995, and would have turned 90 years old on April 15, 2023.

A Closer Look

In honor of what would have been Elizabeth Montgomery’s 90th Birthday, the Reelz Channel will air the new TV documentary, Elizabeth Montgomery: A Bewitched Life, on Sunday, April 16 (the day after Montgomery’s birthday).

A revealing, honest, compelling, and poignant presentation, Elizabeth Montgomery: A Bewitched Life, which was pristinely overseen by Reelz executives Steve Cheskin and Rob Swartz, features a select list of friends, family, and colleagues who knew, loved, and/or worked with the iconic actress.
