Salem, Massachusetts aka The Witch City is known for its historic past of Witch Trials, Maritime strength, and a place in helping create American history. Starting this fall, this energy to still make history, is driving the creation of the reality show, The Young Witches of Salem, a series focusing on the several young adults seeking to learn, work, and live as working Witches in the 21st Century. As part of the roll-out, The Young Witches of Salem will be hosting a Press Conference and public meet and greet on July 13th, 2011, 3 pm at Gulu-Gulu Café , Salem, Ma. Present to offer what the show is all about will be executive producer, Ed Hubbard, and several of the cast members. It will be the first chance to explore the world of The Young Witches.

The core of the show will be about a circle of five young adults, thrust into leadership and public light as part of the most public Pagan temple in America. They are working with the World of Witches Museum, where they work as ritualists, psychics, and tour guides. In order to learn the skills needed to do their job and be public Witches, they will meet and learn from Elders and teachers from across Salem and the USA. The series ends with the month-long Halloween street festival known as Haunted Happenings, which attracts over 500,000 people in search of witchcraft and haunting fun. The Young Witches will be sharing, demonstrating, and testing their skills during this amazing festival.

Just as Salem was the home of the first Long Distance Phone call, The Young Witches of Salem will be one of the first reality series built on the concept of transmedia. Transmedia story telling is based on using multiple platforms to tell the story and will use cutting edge technology, including clickable video, hyperlinked videos, social media connections and augmented reality pieces. The show will be produced by ClickVision.TV, in conjunction with Magick TV. With the first broadcast to begin on October 1st, 2011, the core of the show will be 14 weekly episodes.

To attend the Press Conference and Meet and Greet, join The Young Witches of Salem at Gulu-Gulu Café, 247 Essex Street, Salem, MA at 3:00 pm, July 13th.
