Lifetime has released a ton of images, posters and character banners for “Witches of East End”, which premieres on October 6th. To me, the show reminds me a bit of Death Becomes Her, only with a ton of crazy hot witches. But then again, it’s Lifetime, so I’m quite sure the majority of you readers won’t be down with this series…
Madchen Amick, Julia Ormond, Jenna Dewan-Tatum, Rachel Boston, Jason George, Eric Winter, and Daniel DiTomasso star. Guest stars include Freddy Prinze, Jr., and Virginia Madsen.
“This is one of the most exciting ensemble casts we’ve seen, and the whole show is fresh, original, and just right for Lifetime,” Lifetime’s EVP Rob Sharenow said.
Based on Melissa de la Cruz’s best-selling novel, “Witches of East End” centers on the adventures of Joanna Beauchamp (Ormond) and her two adult daughters, Freya (Dewan-Tatum) and Ingrid (Boston), both of whom unknowingly are their family’s next generation of witches. Amick plays Joanna’s mischievous witch sister, Wendy.
Maggie Friedman (“Eastwick”) wrote the pilot, which was directed by Mark Waters (Mean Girls), and executive produces “Witches of East End” with Erwin Stoff (The Matrix) of 3 Arts Entertainment.
