"You will burn."
Based on WGN America's newly released teaser for its first original-scripted series, "Salem," no one is getting out alive. The ominous footage shows that 17th-century Massachusetts would not - and did not - tolerate "witchcraft" of any kind.
Matt Cherniss is out to make his network the next FX or AMC, which have successful dark-themed shows such as the former's "American Horror Story: Coven." Showtime is also riding the supernatural bandwagon with its show "Penny Dreadful."
"Salem" stars Janet Montgomery as Mary Sibley, the city's most powerful enchantress, and Shane West as John Alden, a hardened veteran who has a history with Mary. The show will bow this spring.
