Lifetime’s newest drama series Witches of East End will premiere on Sunday October 6th at 10/9c, it has been announced.
Inspired by the book of the same name, Witches of East End was penned by Maggie Friedman and centers on the mysterious Beauchamp family: free-spirited artist Joanna and her two grown daughters, wild-child bartender Freya and shy librarian Ingrid, both of whom are unaware that they are gifted with a magical birthright. Freya is recently engaged to the man of her dreams, wealthy playboy Dash Gardiner, but when she finds herself inexplicably drawn to Dash’s troubled, enigmatic brother Killian, bizarre occurrences begin to manifest in her life. Meanwhile, Joanna’s long-estranged sister Wendy shows up with a warning that could change the Beauchamps’ fate forever, forcing Joanna to reveal to her daughters they are, indeed, immortal witches who possess great untapped powers. With their idyllic small town life now turned upside down, and a formidable and ancient enemy intent on ending the Beauchamp family line, will Freya and Ingrid be able to accept their true potential before it is too late? The drama series is produced by Fox 21 and stars Julia Ormond (Mad Men), Mädchen Amick (Damages), Jenna Dewan Tatum (American Horror Story), Rachel Boston (In Plain Sight), Eric Winter (The Mentalist), Daniel DiTomasso (CSI), Jason George (Grey’s Anatomy) and Madsen (Anna Nicole).
