‘Motherland: Fort Salem’ on Blue Ant

    48

    Blue Ant Entertainment is airing a new series Motherland: Fort Salem on March 20.

    “Motherland: Fort Salem” is set in an alternate, present-day America where witches ended their persecution 300 years ago by cutting a deal with the U.S. government to fight for their country.

    The series follows three young women from basic training in combat magic into terrifying and thrilling early deployment.

    In this world, the traditional roles of gender and power are flipped with women on the front lines, the fight looming and terrorist threats that are strikingly familiar to our world, but with supernatural tactics and weapons.

    The show is written and created by Eliot Laurence, and Will Ferrell, Adam McKay and Kevin Messick serve as executive producers. The pilot was directed by Steven A. Adelson.
