Here's a fun fact. My auntie is a witch - seriously, no kidding. Well, at least she thinks she is... Anyway, it seems like WGN America has catered for her entertainment needs in their upcoming witch drama, Salem.

The show, brought you by Brannon Braga (24, Star Trek: The Next Generation, Voyager, Enterprise), has just conjured up a load of images which show the tumultuous times of 17th century Massachusetts. Check out the images, and a synopsis, below:

Salem stars (Human Target, Made in Jersey) as the ruthless but vulnerable Mary Sibley, Salem’s most powerful enchantress – and Alden’s onetime love interest; (Nikita, ER) as handsome, hardened war veteran John Alden; (Fringe) as local aristocrat Cotton Mather who fans the flames of Salem’s witch hunt; (Revenge) as Mary’s mysterious, carnal accomplice; (Nikita, The Mentalist) as chief politician Magistrate Hale; (Jane Eyre) as the forthright Anne Hale, an artist with a perilous attraction to Alden; and (The Astronaut Farmer) as the mysteriously afflicted Mercy Lewis.

What do you think? Will this show me making an addition to your weekly watch list? Let us know below.
