Potentially gloriously cheesy new fantasy series on ITV2: Switch

Anyone else in the UK seen the trailers for Switch, due to start on ITV2 next week? Seems likes a cheekier version of Charmed...

Four young (and very easy on the eyes) witches living in London, casting various saucy spells on each other & their boyfriends and getting into magical scrapes. The trailer includes them getting hexed by another coven based in Kensington (clearly based on Made in Chelsea stereotypes, leading to potential for hilarity to ensue). Someone described it as Sabrina the Twentysomething Witch, which is certainly OK by me.

Will undoubtedly be cheesy; but could be hilariously so. I suspect the target market is teen girls, but I sense potential for it to be camp Charmed-esque fun for the rest of us too.

I'll probably forget to tune in on Monday when its meant to start, but will catch the VOD at some point.

I'm in the US so the chances of me getting to see aren't cleat ATM, but if it does come here I'll check it out. Looks like it could be goofy fun. I've got a major thing for witches and wizards thanks to reading The Hollows and The Dresden Files.
