Lifetime builds anticipation for the upcoming premiere of its freshman "Witches of East End" with a new promo. Set to a cover of Yuna's "Come as You Are", the video is literally fiery with the main female characters leaving a trail of fire as they walk on a sandy beach. A blade and a pentagram, which is often associated with magic, are also seen in the teaser.
The new supernatural drama is based on Melissa de la Cruz's New York Times best-selling novel of the same title. It centers on the mysterious Beauchamp family: free-spirited artist Joanna (Julia Ormond) and her two grown daughters, wild-child bartender Freya (Jenna Dewan Tatum) and shy librarian Ingrid (Rachel Boston), both of whom are unaware that they are gifted (and cursed) with a magical birthright.
Freya is recently engaged to the man of her dreams, wealthy playboy Dash Gardiner (Eric Winter), but when she finds herself inexplicably drawn to Dash's troubled, enigmatic brother Killian (Daniel DiTomasso), bizarre occurrences begin to manifest in her life. Meanwhile, Joanna's long-estranged sister Wendy (Madchen Amick) shows up with a warning that could change the Beauchamps' fate forever, forcing Joanna to reveal to her daughters that 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 series debuts Sunday, October 6 at 10/9c on Lifetime.
