I didn’t think much of WGN making their own programs. Then I saw some clips from Salem and it started to look pretty good. When I watched the screener of the first episode, I was damn impressed.
The newest addition to horror television is WGN America’s Salem. Set during the witch trials of the 1600s, Salem premiered a long-form trailer at the Television Critics Association conference. After watching the footage, I am all-in. This is not going to be a mushy modern-day witch show with ties to the Salem Witch Trials; this is not a romance that is aided by a little nose-wiggle and a sprinkle of fairy dust. This is looks brutal.
