Witches are the new mermaids or what have you. But all joking aside, we're actually pretty excited about Lifetime's new Witches of East End Lifetime TV series. Because it stars Julia Ormond. And she is amazing, and so is magic.

Based on the Melissa de la Cruz's novel, Witches of East End will also star Jenna Dewan Tatum (who plays Ormond's daughter Freya) and Rachel Boston (as the second daughter Ingrid). Here is the very first teaser footage, what do you think?

The 10-episode series will premiere on Sunday, October 6th.
