Witches are real in this first trailer for SALEM

1 min read


Yesterday we learnt of cable network WGN America’s plans to start producing their own original content, with an adaptation of DC Comics’ gritty, grounded and very realistic “undercover agent on a Native American reservation” series, Scalped. All adjectives that will probably never be used to describe their other entrant, Salem.

As the name implies, the series has to do with the infamous witch hunts in the 17th century US town, only in this case, the witches are completely real. And rather attractive. Yes, one of America’s most shameful acts human rights violations is being turned into a sexy, supernatural TV series, and here’s the fittingly unsubtle trailer to prove it.

I can’t say that this quite grabs my attention yet, but I felt the same way about Sleepy Hollow when I saw its brash trailers, and ended up loving how dark and unhinged that show is. The man behind Salem is none other longtime Star Trek TV series and 24 stalwart Brannon Braga, so I am more than willing to give it the benefit of the doubt for now though.

Salem premiers this Sunday on US network Fox21. No word on whether it will reach our TV shores.

      I actually enjoyed Enterprise and Terra Nova (well, Terra Nova more towards the end, when they heard they were getting cancelled and suddenly got really good).

          Only ever watched the first two eps. Never really got into it.

    Sleepy Hollow was the first thing I thought of when I saw this trailer.
