WGN orders 13 episodes for “Salem” witch TV series

June 5, 2013

Has Rob Zombie’s THE LORDS OF SALEM made witches a hot topic?

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, president 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.
