WGN America’s Stylish ‘Salem’ Teaser Promises Witches Will Burn

Salem does not look like a nice place to visit, but it has the makings of an interesting show to watch as long as you’re not a stickler for historical accuracy.

WGN America has released the first trailer for their original outing starring Seth Gabel (Fringe) as a guy who really doesn’t like witches. The dark trailer features all manner of violence against witches, but unlike the real Salem witch trials, these ladies and gentlemen actually possess some supernatural abilities. In fact, the show is meant to be a love story wrapped in historical wackiness. Check out the trailer and all of its creepiness below. Do you think Salem is a worthy first foray into original dramas for WGN?

Salem premieres 2014 on WGN America.
