Witches are working for WGN America. The cable network has renewed its first scripted series Salem, just three episodes into its 13-episode first season.
“At WGN America, we are committed to delivering compelling, brand-defining programming rich with fascinating characters and Salem has done just that,” said Matt Cherniss, President and General Manager, WGN America and Tribune Studios, in a statement.
The freshman drama had a strong debut, delivering 1.5 million viewers for its first airing, a tally that grew to 2.3 million with repeat airings, and has remained steady.
The 13-episode second season will begin production later this year to air in 2015. READ FULL STORY
The folks behind Salem have turned to a very logical person to provide a creepy song for their witch drama: Marilyn Manson. (Sure, Stevie Nicks wouldn’t have a bad choice either, but then again, she’s aligned with a different coven, American Horror Story.) The shock rocker’s new tune “Cupid Carries a Gun” can be heard this Sunday as part of the new opening titles for WGN America’s 17th-century-set drama about the Salem witch trials. READ FULL STORY
Witchcraft. Wild accusations. Shane West’s wig.
There’s a lot to look at in the following new trailer for WGN America’s first original series Salem, a new scripted show set against the backdrop of 17th-century Massachusetts’s infamous witch trials. The twist: In this version of the story, the witches are real. (Think Hocus Pocus, but not actually anything like Hocus Pocus.)
West stars as John Alden, a soldier who returns home only to find his village whipped into a witch-hunting frenzy. He also happens to be an old flame of Mary Sibley (Janet Montgomery) — a member of Salem’s elite who, oh yeah, also happens to be a powerful sorceress. Both characters are based on actual historical figures; any Salem scholar who examines the show’s cast list will find more familiar names, including Tituba (played here by Revenge‘s Ashley Madekwe) and Cotton Mather (Fringe‘s Seth Gabel).
