DESCRIPTION:
(from WGN America's press release, January 2014) With a clearly focused strategic mission, a new logo and an expanded primetime lineup of powerful and provocative programming, WGN America (WGNA) is relaunching to become a top-tier general entertainment cable network, driven by high-quality, distinctive original content. The announcement was made today by Matt Cherniss, President and General Manager, WGN America and Tribune Studios, during WGN America's first-ever presentation to the Television Critics Association (TCA). In support of the launch, WGNA has made bold moves, ordering straight to series the production of two standout, scripted dramas: "Salem," to premiere Sunday, April 20, 2014, and "Manhattan," to start production in New Mexico in March for a July 2014 premiere. "Salem," which reexamines the infamous witch trials in 17th century Massachusetts, is now in production on a massive Louisiana set that recreates the historic village with astonishing detail, complete with critical period and architectural elements, including candlelit interiors, rustic shops and a town center that bears witness to the horrors and excitement of the time. The storyline explores how suspicion and fear gripped Salem and its residents, and reveals the truth that in Salem, the witches were real, but not who they seemed to be.
