Time for a little bit of magic and a whole lot of drama.
Lifetime announced today that they have decided to pick up Witches of East End for a 10-episode season order. The new witchy drama will star Julia Ormond as Beauchamp family matriarch Joanna, with Jenna Dewan-Tatum and Rachel Boston portraying her daughters Freya and Ingrid respectively. Madchen Amick is also slated to star as Joanna's sister, Wendy.
Witches of East End is based on the popular best-selling adult book series from Melissa de la Cruz. The television series will focus on the story of the Beauchamp family and their lives in East Haven. Once younger daughter Freya (Dewan-Tatum) becomes engaged, the union sparks a series of events that forces Joanna (Ormond) to reveal to her daughters that both, in reality, are the next generation of witches in the Beauchamp family tree.
The new drama series is slated to premiere on Lifetime later this year.
