With Rob Zombie’s Lords of Salem out, some of you guy may we willing to give this new series a shot…
WGN has ordered “Salem” straight to series from 20th Century Fox TV’s cable division Fox 21, Variety reports.
“Salem” hails from Brannon Braga (“24,” “Star Trek”) and Adam Simon (The Haunting in Connecticut) and is the first original scripted effort for WGN America.
“The 13-episode first run centers on Salem, a place where witches are real, though they are not who or what they seem.”
“Salem” will begin lensing this fall, and WGN is eying a 2014 premiere for the series.
Matt Cherniss, prez and g.m. of the net stated: “Brannon and Adam have an amazing vision for the world and characters that comprise Salem, Massachusetts during the witch trials and we believe that a great adventure full of supernatural, romance, and action awaits the viewer.”
