As per The Hollywood Reporter, “Weeds” and “Orange is the New Black” creator Jenji Kohan is prepping a drama for HBO set in Salem, which is being described as a provocative period piece. The untitled Salem period drama explores the circumstances surrounding one of the most compelling chapters in American history, when intolerance and repression set neighbor against neighbor and led a town to mass hysteria.

Kohan will pen the script with Bruce Miller and Tracy Miller, and it will be a part of her deal with Lionsgate TV.
