Witches of East End is a repeat tonight but next Sunday is 1970s flashback Boogie Knights, which cast talked about at length at San Diego Comic Con.
Based on the series of books by Melissa de la Cruz, Witches of East End is about the Beauchamp family of witches: mother Joanna (Julia Ormond) and her two daughters Freya (Jenna Dewan Tatum) and Ingrid (Rachel Boston) — who’ve lived and died countless times — and Joanna’s sister Wendy (Mädchen Amick). Plus the Beauchamps’ long involvement with the Gardiner brothers over many past lives: Freya’s former fiancé Dash (Eric Winter) and her soulmate Killian (Daniel DiTomasso).
Directed by Debbie Allen, Boogie Knights flashes back to one of Freya’s past lives with Killian and reportedly has a steamy Frillian bathroom scene, so steamy they won’t show everything. It also gives Dewan Tatum a chance to display her dance moves (she and her husband Channing Tatum co-starred in Step Up) in a red hot dress. “There’s no bigger dancer dream than to do a dance scene with Debbie Allen,” Dewan Tatum told fans about being directed by the famous choreographer. And not to be left out, Dash (Eric Winter) is rocking a mustache (porn-stache?) in the 1970s flashback.
Showrunners Maggie Friedman and Rich Hatem showed Boogie Knights footage at Comic-Con, confirmed the sexiness of the Frillian scenes and warned fans “some beloved characters will be with us no more” by the end of the second season.
Boogie Knights airs Sunday, August 10th, on Lifetime in the U.S. and Canada.
