Behind-the-scenes video takes you to “SALEM”


In their first original series, WGN America will take you back to the Massachusetts town where witches brewed, and has just released a behind-the-scenes video clip revealing how it’s bringing SALEM to the small screen.

Created, executive-produced and written by 24 and STAR TREK veteran Brannon Braga and Adam Simon, whose credits range from Roger Corman’s BRAIN DEAD to THE HAUNTING IN CONNECTICUT, SALEM delves into the village’s infamous past and really went on concerning the witch trials. The cast includes Janet Montgomery, Shane West, Seth Gabel, Ashley Madekwe, Xander Berkeley, Tamzin Merchant, Elise Eberle (pictured above) and Iddo Goldberg, with Oscar winner Matthew Mungle in charge of the makeup FX. SALEM premieres Sunday, April 20 at 10 p.m. ET/9 p.m. CT on WGN; look for an exclusive interview with Simon in Fango #332, on sale next month.
