Eddie Izzard to Star in HBO Salem Witch Trial Pilot

Actor-comedian Eddie Izzard has been cast in the pilot of HBO’s new show from Orange Is the New Black creator Jenji Kohan.

The show, tentatively titled The Devil You Know, will be a period drama exploring the circumstances of the Salem Witch Trials in 17th century New England. This dark period in America’s history pitted townsfolk against one another and sent the town into a religious frenzy. In total, 19 people were hanged, an elderly man was crushed with stones and several people died in jail after being accused of witchcraft. Nearly 200 people were accused overall.
