ABC is getting back into the miniseries business, partnering with Salma Hayek to develop a new take on “Wicked.” Erik Jendresen (“Band of Brothers”) is writing the script, which looks to be turned into an eight-hour miniseries event for the Alphabet. “Wicked” is a retelling of the “Wizard of Oz” tale from the Wicked Witch’s point of view. The miniseries is based on the 1995 book “Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West” by Gregory Maguire. Maguire’s book – which recast the witch as a hero fighting for her homeland — was turned into the wildly popular musical “Wicked,” which hit Broadway in 2003. A feature film is still in development hell over at Universal.
