Witches of East End is an American supernatural fantasy drama television series based on the book of the same name by Melissa de la Cruz and set in the fictional seaside town of East End, which follows the adventures of a mother and her two adult daughters, who are unknowingly their family's next generation of witches.
The series centres on the mysterious Beauchamp family: free-spirited artist Joanna (Julia Ormond) and her two grown daughters, wild-child bartender Freya (Jenna Dewan Tatum) and shy librarian Ingrid (Rachel Boston), both of whom are unaware that they are gifted (and cursed) with a magical birthright.
Freya is recently engaged to the man of her dreams, wealthy playboy Dash Gardiner (Eric Winter), but when she finds herself inexplicably drawn to Dash's troubled, enigmatic brother Killian (Daniel di Tomasso), bizarre occurrences begin to manifest in her life.
Meanwhile, Joanna's long-estranged sister Wendy (Mädchen Amick) shows up with a warning that could change the Beauchamps' fate forever, forcing Joanna to reveal to her daughters they are, indeed, immortal witches who possess great untapped powers.
With their idyllic small town life now turned upside down, and a formidable and ancient enemy intent on ending the Beauchamp family line, will Freya and Ingrid be able to accept their true potential before it is too late?
Produced by Fox 21 (Homeland, Sons of Anarchy), Witches of East End is executive produced by Maggie Friedman (Eastwick), Jonathan Kaplan (Without a Trace, ER), Erwin Stoff (The Matrix) and Josh Reims (Brothers & Sisters). Kaplan also served as the producing director on the series.
The pilot was directed by Mark Waters (Mean Girls) and written by Friedman.
