DESCRIPTION:
(from Travel Channel's press release, September 2019) At a time when "witch hunt" has burst back into our national vocabulary, Travel Channel presents a terrifying chapter in America's history, the relevancy of which cannot be overlooked in the four-part docudrama, "Witches of Salem," beginning on Sunday, October 6 at 10 p.m. ET/PT. In examining the mass hysteria that gripped Salem at that time, the series reveals how extreme beliefs can completely change how communities collectively think and, in this case, fatally act. Based upon original transcripts from witnesses at the Salem Witch Trials and layered with expert interviews from historians and authors, "Witches of Salem" unravels the true story of palpable evil that the residents of this otherwise sleepy Massachusetts village endured in 1692. From reports of possession by the devil, to mass arrests, sensational trials and public hangings, each hour-long episode is an in-depth account of the eight months of fear, panic and horror that overtook Salem, revealing the truth behind this dark legacy in America's history.
