Plot Synopsis

Executive produced by Will Ferrell, Adam McKay and series creator Eliot Laurence, MOTHERLAND: FORT SALEM is a one-hour drama series set in an alternate, present-day America where witches ended their persecution 300 years ago by cutting a deal with the burgeoning U.S. government to fight for their country. The series follows three young women from basic training in combat magic into terrifying and thrilling early deployment. In this world, the traditional roles of gender and power are flipped, with women on the front lines fighting looming terrorist threats that are strikingly familiar to our world, but with supernatural tactics and weapons. Raelle is a reluctant recruit with major authority issues whose mother recently died in the line of duty. Tally is a kind, strong-willed and curious witch who enlisted despite her mother's passionate disapproval. Abigail is an unquestionably alpha, smart, driven and courageous witch who hails from the upper echelons of military witch society and is excited to be joining the ranks of the witches' army. Rounding out the witch recruits, Scylla is a playful yet dark and mischievous recruit who is not what she appears to be. Anacostia is a tough but wryly humorous drill sergeant whose chief concern is keeping the young recruits alive through basic training, while General Sarah Alder is the highest-ranking officer in the Armed Forces and the only leader the witches have ever known.
