Witches of Salem


Travel Channel chronicles a town's descent into madness in the four-part docudrama, "Witches of Salem." The miniseries documents the hysteria that gripped Salem, Mass., in 1692, leading to mass arrests, dramatic trials and public hangings. The docudrama begins with Reverend Samuel Parris' daughter, Betty, who is afflicted with inexplicable fits. As the affliction spreads to other young girls in the New England community, Betty points a finger at the family's indentured servant, Tituba, accusing her of being a witch. The accusation triggers the hysteria that culminates in the deaths of 20 men, women and children. Based on original transcripts from the trials and interviews with historians and writers, the series captures the day-to-day events stemming from these reports of demonic possession and leading to months of fear, panic and horror.
