Witches of East End (TV series) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Witches of East End is an American fantasy drama television series based on the novel of the same name by Melissa de la Cruz. Lifetime announced its intention to film a television pilot of the series in autumn of 2012, with filming taking place in Macon, Georgia and Wilmington, North Carolina. On January 31, 2013, Lifetime confirmed that they were ordering ten episodes with the intention of airing Witches of East End later that same year. The series stars Julia Ormond, Jenna Dewan-Tatum, Rachel Boston, and Mädchen Amick. The series premiered on October 6, 2013.
This is a 10 episode series loosely based on a book by Melissa de la Cruz who writes mostly for teens also known as YA Young Adults. The series has aired 2 episodes so far and it is quite fun and can be lighthearted there are also dark moments. It plays more like Grimm or Charmed then say True Blood or Game of Thrones. At this point I think my favorite characters are Aunt Wendy (is that a bit of bow the Wendy the Good Witch of Casper the Ghost fame?) and Ingrid the quite, mousy librarian. Freya the other sister is your stereotypical dramatic wild child who can't seem to live without a man.
Airs Sunday on Lifetime at 10 pm but is also available on Comcast's On Demand feature.
