[via press release from WGN America]
WGN America's "Salem" enters the world of the most notorious witch trials in history, a period steeped in fear, suspicion, and hysteria. On an expansive set in Shreveport, La, built to reflect volatile 17th century Massachusetts, "Salem" explores what really fueled the town's infamous witch trials and dares to uncover the dark, supernatural truth behind them. 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.
Created, executive-produced and written by award-winning writer/producer Brannon Braga ("24," "Star Trek: The Next Generation, Voyager and Enterprise") and Adam Simon ("The Haunting in Connecticut"), "Salem" stars Janet Montgomery ("Human Target," "Made in Jersey"), Shane West ("Nikita," "ER"), Seth Gabel ("Fringe"), Ashley Madekwe ("Revenge"), Xander Berkeley ("Nikita," "The Mentalist"), Tamzin Merchant ("Jane Eyre") and Elise Eberle ("The Astronaut Farmer").
"Salem" will premiere on SUNDAY, April 20 on WGN America.
