Wigs, War and Witches! Shane West Talks New WGN America Series Salem

Forget the magic fairy dust and enchanting spells, the witches of Salem are downright terrifying.

The upcoming WGN America series, the network's first foray into scripted original programming, takes a fresh — and much darker -- look at the 1692 Salem Witch Trials. Its witches are very real and actually manipulating the town into a state of fear. Shane West stars as war hero John Alden (historically, a survivor of the trials) who has returned home to find that his former love Mary (Janet Montgomery) has gone on to marry elderly town leader George Sibley (Michael Mulheren). What John doesn't know is that he got Mary pregnant and in order for her to get rid of the baby, she essentially made a deal with the devil-like witch Tituba (Ashley Madekwe).

First Look: Teaser Trailer for WGN America's Original Series Salem

WGN America is shedding its "superstation" skin and getting into the original scripted series business this spring with the period drama Salem.

The hour-long series, set in 17th century Massachusetts, explores the infamous Salem witch trials. In a twist, witches are real in Salem, and there's a dark, supernatural truth behind them.

Brannon Braga (24, Star Trek: The Next Generation) created, executive produced and wrote Salem, along with Adam Simon (The Haunting in Connecticut). The show stars Janet Montgomery (Made in Jersey), Shane West (Nikita), Seth Gabel (Fringe), Ashley Madekew (Revenge), Xander Berkeley (The Mentalist), Tamzin Merchant (Jane Eyre) and Elise Eberle (The Astronaut Farmer).

West plays John Alden, a "tough, pragmatic, wry-humored" war veteran who returns to Salem after spending a decade on the battlefield and being held in captivity at the hands of the Indians. John finds his hometown gripped in witch-hunt frenzy, led by Cotton Mather (Gabel). John also has a history with Mary Sibley (Montgomery), but is the subject of advances by Anne Hale (Merchant), a fearless artist who becomes Mary's enemy.
