Over Labor Day Weekend, Lifetime’s magical new series Witches of East End offered East Hampton revelers sweet surprises in the form of delish brownies to celebrate their upcoming October 6 premiere.
Series stars Julia Ormond, Jenna Dewan Tatum, Rachel Boston and Madchen Amick portray a family of witches, but unbeknownst to the younger generation, they have been gifted and cursed with a magical birthright. It’s sexy, it’s spell-binding and it’s going to become your new TV addiction.
“Freya (Jenna’s character) and I don’t know that we have any supernatural gifts,” explains Rachel, who plays shy and conservative Ingrid. “And Ingrid is a librarian, and I’ve taken all of the wisdom that I might have from these past lives, and I’ve applied it to the academic study, and I’m writing a dissertation about witchcraft and the cult practices. So in the midst of that, I’m aware of all of these different forces, and I have studied it so much, and now it’s going to be part of my real universe and my family.”
“In my very first meeting (about the show), I was, like, ‘Is the magic going to be grounded? Or is it going to be larger than life?’ And it is very grounded and in a very exciting but believable way, which excited me the most because I wanted to do something like that.”
Witches of East End premieres October 6 on Lifetime.
