WGN debuts Salem – a new series about the Salem witch trials – beginning April 20th. A new TV spot has hit the web and it really shows us here that the witches are indeed…witches. There doesn't appear to be any The Crucible-like mystery here of "are they or aren't they?"
Set in the volatile world of 17th century Massachusetts, Salem explores what really fueled the town's infamous witch trials and dares to uncover the dark, supernatural truth cloaked behind the veil of this infamous period in American history. In Salem, witches are real, but they are not who or what they seem to be. The show, which centers on an epic romance wrapped around this explosive revelation, delivers a bold new vision of Salem – and an even bolder new vision of witches.
Janet Montgomery, Shane West, Seth Gabel, Ashley Madekwe, Xander Berkeley, Tamzin Merchant and Elise Eberle star.
