American DreamsRachel Boston will play Ingrid Beauchamp in the cable channel’s Witches of East End, TVLine has learned exclusively.

Ingrid is described as cautious, quirky, smart and unaware of how beautiful she is. When the pilot – based on the Melissa de la Cruz novel of the same name — begins, Ingrid and her wild younger sister Freya (played by Jenna Dewan) don’t know that they’ve been witches since birth. A series of events eventually forces mom Joanna (Julia Ormond) to tell them the truth.

In addition to playing JJ’s girlfriend Beth in NBC’s nostalgic Dreams, Boston’s other TV credits include In Plain Sight, 7th Heaven, Grey’s Anatomy, and coincidentally, Eastwick – the 2009 ABC series based on a John Updike novel about supernatural happenings surrounding a trio of women.

In addition, newcomer Daniel Ditomasso has been cast as Killian Gardiner, Freya’s future brother-in-law. He’s brooding and incredibly sexy, and his thrall over Freya doesn’t bode well for her engagement to Patrick Heusinger’s Dash. (Ditomasso also appears in the first episode of The CW’s Beauty and the Beast, which airs Thursday, Oct. 11.)

    Sounds a bit like Charmed and Eastwick…. Interesting… Hope this gets a series order! Anything with witches and sisters gets me pumped!!! Is this gonna be a dramedy? Or just a good ol’ serial drama?

  3. Amanda says:

    Too bad this plot follows nothing of the books other than a few names. I’m really by sure about this.

  4. Robin says:

    Interesting…I may watch, as long as they renew Army Wives. If not, my future tv series watching on Lifetime, is in danger of disappearing. I loved American Dreams! And I liked her as Beth (JJ’s girlfriend).

  5. Shaun says:

    When does this premiere?

  6. L says:

    Looking forward to this. I was mad when they axed Eastwick.

  7. Lifetime has had a lot of likable series that they just threw away after one season (Angela’s Eyes, The Protector, Against the Wall etc). I hope they can do better cultivating and marketing this one.
