LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - ABC has opted not to order additional episodes of "Eastwick," its rookie supernatural comedy-drama starring Rebecca Romijn.

"Eastwick," a fresh take on the hit 1987 movie "The Witches of Eastwick," will finish production on 13 episodes; ABC plans to run them all.

ABC is also yanking its reality show "Let's Dance," which was supposed to premiere on November 23 with Kathy Griffin hosting.

Sources said ABC had difficulty casting the series, which is a common problem for networks when developing celebrity-driven reality fare, though usually such projects don't get so far in the process as to have a premiere date.

In its place, ABC intends to air "Find My Family," in which people get to meet long-lost families or loved ones. The network has six episodes planned.

It has also picked up five more episodes of its Tuesday crime drama "The Forgotten," starring Christian Slater.
