EXCLUSIVE: On The Set Of WGN’s “SALEM”

“Salem” is a new series that debuts Sunday, April 20th on WGN America, and the drama is loosely based on the infamous witch trials of the late 1600`s. An entire village was created for the show, but it`s not in Massachusetts where you`ll find the actual town of Salem. This Hollywood set is located just outside Shreveport, LA.

“I couldn’t believe it. I thought there were going to be like maybe 3 or 4 houses there,” Iddo Goldberg (“Isaac Walton”) said.
