'Witches Of East End' Premiere Set For October On Lifetime

Posted: Updated:

Get ready to meet the "Witches of East End."

The newest Lifetime drama, inspired by Melissa de la Cruz's New York Times best-selling novel of the same name, will premiere on Sunday, October 6 at 10 p.m. ET, just in time for Halloween.

"Witches of East End," which stars Julia Ormond, Jenna Dewan-Tatum, Mädchen Amick and Rachel Boston, follows the Beauchamps, a family of witches who live in East Haven, a sleepy, secluded seaside town.

Ormond plays free-spirited Joanna, mother to wild-child bartender Freya (Dewan-Tatum) and shy librarian Ingrid (boston). Freya's engaged to the man of her dreams, Dash Gardiner (Eric Winter), but she's also drawn to his brother Killian (Daniel DiTomasso) -- sound familiar, "Vampire Diaries" fans? -- and she starts to notice some bizarre things happening around her. Though neither Freya nor her sister knows about their bewitching birthright, their aunt, Wendy (Amick) arrives with a warning that forces Joanna to reveal the truth.

The 10-episode Lifetime series, which new mom Dewan-Tatum noted at the Television Critics Association Summer 2013 press tour feels a lot like the 1998 movie "Practical Magic," also features "Grey's Anatomy" alum Jason George as Ingrid's love interest Adam, and "Sideways" star Virginia Madsen as the Beauchamps future in-law, Dash's mom Penelope Gardiner.

"Witches of East End" will premiere on Sunday, October 6 at 10 p.m. ET.
