The Pilot is the first episode of the first and only season of the Tabitha television series. It is the second pilot which the network bought, and is the first of twelve episodes.
Tabitha has inherited her mother Samantha's magical gifts, much to the chagrin of her mortal older brother, Adam. They both work at Los Angeles television station KXLA where she is a production assistant to Marvin Decker, the producer for "The Paul Thurston Show". The conceited Paul Thurston wants to interview former beauty queen, Sherry MacBride, even after Tabitha lined up Andrew Collins, an author of a book about recycling and the energy crisis.
Tabitha stops by Paul's apartment. Every time he gets amorous, Tabitha causes something to go out - a blender, the stereo, the lights, the elevator. When Paul finally gets to the studio after more energy mishaps, all he wants to talk about is energy. Collins gets on his show after all.
- Paul lives in apartment 2610. There is a gold star and a nameplate on his door.
Bloopers and Continuity Errors
- Adam is mortal in this series. However, in "Adam, Warlock or Washout?" (Bewitched, season eight), he is revealed to be a warlock. This change is probably intentional to repeat the character dynamics of "Darrin/Samantha/Endora" with "Adam/Tabitha/Aunt Minerva".
- Tabitha is younger than Adam in this series, his "kid sister". In Bewitched she was born in 1966 (And Then There Were Three) and he in 1969 (And Then There Were Four).
- Lisa Hartman as Tabitha Stephens

- Mel Stewart as Marvin Decker
- David Ankrum as Adam Stephens
- Karen Morrow as Aunt Minerva
