LOS ANGELES, CA (July 26, 2013) - The witching hour is coming...get ready to meet the Beauchamps, the Witches of East End...

Lifetime's newest drama, Witches of East End, featuring an all-star-cast headlined by Emmy Award-winner Julia Ormond (Temple Grandin, Mad Men), Mädchen Amick (Mad Men, Damages), Jenna Dewan Tatum (American Horror Story) and Rachel Boston (In Plain Sight) as a family of witches living in the secluded seaside town of East Haven, will cast its spell beginning Sunday, October 6, at 10:00pm ET/PT. Also set to star are Eric Winter (The Mentalist), Daniel DiTomasso (CSI), Jason George (Grey's Anatomy) and Oscar and Golden Globe Award nominee Virginia Madsen (Sideways, Anna Nicole).

Inspired by Melissa de la Cruz's New York Times best-selling novel, Witches of East End centers on the mysterious Beauchamp family: free-spirited artist Joanna (Ormond) and her two grown daughters, wild-child bartender Freya (Dewan Tatum) and shy librarian Ingrid (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 (Winter), but when she finds herself inexplicably drawn to Dash's troubled, enigmatic brother Killian (DiTomasso), bizarre occurrences begin to manifest in her life. Meanwhile, Joanna's long-estranged sister Wendy (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 will also serve as the producing director on the series. The pilot was directed by Mark Waters (Mean Girls) and written by Friedman.

Witches of East End will be Lifetime's second scripted drama to premiere this year.
