Witch Hunts are Reborn in New Show 'Salem'


It looks like trouble is toiling again in Salem!

WGN America is getting into the original programming game, and its first offering is pure witchcraft.

The network's first original series takes viewers back in time to the infamous Salem witch trials, retelling the dark story with a supernatural twist.

At the helm of the series is creator, writer, and executive producer Brannon Braga (24, Star Trek: The Next Generation, Voyager and Enterprise) along with Adam Simon (The Haunting in Connecticut), and stars Janet Montgomery (Human Target), Shane West (Nikita, ER), Seth Gabel (Fringe), and more.

Salem is set to premiere on WGN America this Spring.
