First Still From Witches of East End TV Adaptation Released, Based On The Novel Of Melissa de la Cruz

At some point of my quest to look for new genre, author Melissa de la Cruz somehow caught my attention, because she's a Filipino who made it through the international publishing arena. When she and her family moved to the US, her success in writing eventually has been ground-breaking, if not astronomical.

These are the two books that I have been eyeing in the past for quite some time, and I just got even more excited when a TV adaptation of the first book in The Beauchamp Family series, the Witches of East End, is finally coming this October. Could you imagine that?

Witches of East End Serpent's Kiss
The upcoming American Drama TV series Witches of East End is loosely based on her novel of the same title. It stars Julia Ormond, Jenna Dewan-Tatum, Mädchen Amick and Rachel Boston. It chronicles the story of a family of witches, the Beauchamps, who lives in the fictional town of East Haven. Don't think that this is much like Charmed, because it isn't. It's far more daring, exciting and modern than that.

Here is the very first still from the upcoming TV Drama series Witches of East End.

And that is Julia Ormond playing one of the Beauchamps, Joanna Beauchamp.


It’s the beginning of summer in North Hampton, and beautiful Freya Beauchamp is celebrating her engagement to wealthy Bran Gardiner, the heir to Fair Haven and Gardiners Island. But Freya is drawn to Bran’s gorgeous but unreliable brother Killian, and sparks fly when the two decide to play a dangerous game, following an ancient story of love, betrayal and tragedy that harks back to the days of Valhalla.

Witches of East End follows the Beauchamp family—the formidable matriarch Joanna and her daughters Freya and Ingrid. Freya, a sexy bartender, has a potion to cure every kind of heartache, while Ingrid, the local librarian, solves complicated domestic problems with her ability to tie magical knots. Joanna is the witch to see when modern medicine has no more answers; her powers can wake the dead. Everything seems to be going smoothly until a young girl, Molly Lancaster, goes missing after taking one of Freya’s irresistible cocktails. As more of the town’s residents begin disappearing, everyone seems to have the same suspects in mind: the Beauchamp women.

Witches of East End premieres on Sunday, October 6, 2013 and will be aired at 10 p.m. ET.
