One thing that American Horror Story – The Coven has done is to increase the visibility of witches. If you’re speaking of witches, well then, the Salem Witch Trials have to be included. That’s just what WGN has done with their first original series, Salem. I’ve watched the trailer, and I’m interested. I hope you are, too. Of course, my wife had ancestors in Salem during the trials. Maybe I should check her for some of the signs. Then again, maybe I shouldn’t. Anyway, here’s the synopsis and the trailer:
Synopsis: Set in the volatile world of 17th century Massachusetts, SALEM explores what really fueled the town’s infamous witch trials and dares to uncover the dark, supernatural truth hiding behind the veil of this infamous period in American history. 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.
