2013 has been a pretty big year for witches with both Rob Zombie's Lords of Salem and "American Horror Story: Coven" delving into the land of broomsticks and evil spells. Today we learned that HBO will soon be getting in on the fun. Find all the bewitching details here!

As per The Hollywood Reporter, "Weeds" and "Orange is the New Black" creator Jenji Kohan is prepping a drama for HBO set in Salem, which is being described as a provocative period piece. The untitled Salem period drama explores the circumstances surrounding one of the most compelling chapters in American history, when intolerance and repression set neighbor against neighbor and led a town to mass hysteria.

Kohan will pen the script with Bruce Miller and Tracy Miller, and it will be a part of her deal with Lionsgate TV.

Look for more soon!
