Melissa de la Cruz has been excitedly talking on her Twitter and Facebook page that her book series, "Witchces of East End" is being made into a television series for Lifetime channel and will air on October 6. There have been ten episodes ordered. The series will star Julia Ormond, Jenna Dewan-Tatum, Rachel Boston, and Mädchen Amick
The book tells the story of the Beauchamp family, Joanna is the mother and Ingrid and Freya are the daughters. In the book, the family has been ordered not to use their witchy powers because of what happened during the Salem Witch Trials as well another event that may just spoil the book and the show.
But, Lifetime has said that the girls will not be aware of their heritage in the television show and a lot of the story is trying to find out who they are and where they came from. This is all that has been released thus far.
