Telemystery: Lifetime Orders Witches of East End to Series

Telemystery: Mystery and Suspense on Television

Last summer Lifetime ordered a pilot for a potential series adaptation of Melissa de la Cruz's novel Witches of East End. Today we're learning that the cable network has moved forward with a 10-episode series order, which will premiere later this year.

Julia Ormond stars as Joanna Beauchamp, who, together with her two daughters Freya (Jenna Dewan-Tatum) and Ingrid (Rachel Boston), are living quiet lives in the Hamptons but are harboring a secret: they are witches. Maggie Friedman (Eastwick, Dawson's Creek) wrote the pilot screenplay and will executive produce.

Witches of East End
Melissa de la Cruz

The three Beauchamp women — Joanna and her daughters Freya and Ingrid — live in North Hampton, out on the tip of Long Island. Their beautiful, mist-shrouded town seems almost stuck in time, and all three women lead seemingly quiet, uneventful existences. But they are harboring a mighty secret — they are powerful witches banned from using their magic. Joanna can resurrect people from the dead and heal the most serious of injuries. Ingrid, her bookish daughter, has the ability to predict the future and weave knots that can solve anything from infertility to infidelity. And finally, there's Freya, the wild child, who has a charm or a potion that can cure most any heartache.

For centuries, all three women have been forced to suppress their abilities. But then Freya, who is about to get married to the wealthy and mysterious Bran Gardiner, finds that her increasingly complicated romantic life makes it more difficult than ever to hide her secret. Soon Ingrid and Joanna confront similar dilemmas, and the Beauchamp women realize they can no longer conceal their true selves. They unearth their wands from the attic, dust off their broomsticks, and begin casting spells on the townspeople. It all seems like a bit of good-natured, innocent magic, but then mysterious, violent attacks begin to plague the town. When a young girl disappears over the Fourth of July weekend, they realize it's time to uncover who and what dark forces are working against them.
