With the recent boom of interest in the world of the occult we have seen Rob Zombie's THE LORDS OF SALEM and the highly successful television show AMERICAN HORROR STORY: COVEN take hold of the spotlight and turn viewers on to the witchy side of things. The momentum continues with the upcoming series SALEM which is set in 17th century Massachusetts. Below you will find two teaser videos highlighting the wicked new episodic venture.
“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 hiding behind the veil of this infamous period in American history. In SALEM, witches are real, but they are not who or what they seem. 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.”
SALEM is written by Brannon Braga and Adam Simon. The show stars Janet Montgomery, Shane West, Seth Gabel, Ashley Madekwe, Xander Berkeley, Tamzin Merchant, and Elise Eberle.
SALEM and is slated to air on WGN sometime early this year.
