WATCH: New ‘Salem’ Video Promises ‘You Will Drown’


Witches, and witch hunts, and drownings! Oh, my! Talk about a bewitching series. WGN America’s first scripted series ‘Salem’ has recently released a special web exclusive promising the new show to be an unforgiving and violent one.

Oh, and it also promises “you will drown.” That’s a new way to gain viewers.

As you can see from the teaser below, the video shows members of 17th century Massachusetts gathering around a body of calm water. Then, when you least expect it, a dunking chair rises out of the water with a witch strapped to it.

Then, Seth Gabel, who plays lead witch hunter Cotton Mather, utters, “Are you guilty, or not?” Another man declares, “There could be nothing worse than a witch hunt." A woman then replies (who sounds an awful lot like leading lady Janet Montgomery), “There is something worse. A witch.”

‘Salem’ revolves around witches and the witch hunts leading up to the notorious Salem witch trials. Montgomery portrays sorceress Mary Sibley, while ‘Revenge’ actress Ashley Madekwe plays her right-hand lady, the ageless and exotic Tituba. ‘Nikita’ actor Shane West is also set to play leading man John Alden. West’s former ‘Nikita’ co-star Xander Berkeley will also appear.

As WGN America’s Twitter account promises, “The truth will be revealed when you least expect it. #Salem 2014. #YouWillDrown.”

‘Salem’ is slated to debut this spring on WGN America.

Kind of playing fast and loose with the depth of Mathers involvement.
