'Motherland: Fort Salem' Trailer
Set in an alternate America where witches ended their persecution over 300 years ago by cutting a deal with the government to fight for their country, "Motherland: Fort Salem" follows three young women from basic training in combat magic into early deployment. In this world, the traditional roles of gender and power are flipped, with the more dominant women on the front lines fighting looming terrorist threats that are familiar to our world - but with supernatural tactics and weapons. The series stars Ashley Nicole Williams, Jessica Sutton, Taylor Hickson, Demetria McKinney and Amalia Holm. "Motherland: Fort Salem" is executive produced by Eliot Laurence, Will Ferrell, Adam McKay, Kevin Messick, Maria Maggenti and Steven Adelson.
