The WB show Charmed was due to get a spin-off called Mermaid.

This idea was inspired by the Season 5 two-part episode called "A Witch's Tale" in which Pheobe (Alyssa Milano) transforms into a mermaid in an attempt to "swim away" from her problems after encountering a mermaid-turned-human.

The plot of the proposed idea was to depict the mermaids according to the mythology used in Charmed.

A mermaid named Nikki is saved by a young man after drifitng ashore. She tries to live a normal life and help people with her abilities as a mermaid while avoiding the capture of those who want her back in the water with them.

The pilot was developed but when the WB and UPN merged into The CW the new network passed on it and Mermaid was scrapped.
