WGN America's "Salem" continues to look impressive, and with its Sunday, April 20th premiere just ahead of us, we've got our hands on an all new featurette that takes us a behind-the-scenes. In the featurette we see the creative minds behind it all talk about the world of "Salem" and how it will be explored. On top of that, it offers plenty of new footage, giving us a better idea as to what the show is going to be about. Dig it below!
“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.
“Salem” stars Janet Montgomery as the ruthless but vulnerable Mary Sibley, Salem’s most powerful enchantress – and Alden’s onetime love interest; Shane West as handsome, hardened war veteran John Alden; Seth Gabel as local aristocrat Cotton Mather who fans the flames of Salem’s witch hunt; Ashley Madekwe as Mary’s mysterious, carnal accomplice; Xander Berkeley as chief politician Magistrate Hale; Tamzin Merchant as the forthright Anne Hale, an artist with a perilous attraction to Alden; and Elise Eberle as the mysteriously afflicted Mercy Lewis.
