Witches of East End Casts Eric WinterLifetime’s Witches of East End has cast its spell on Eric Winter.

The Mentalist and Brothers & Sisters alum is joining the new drama in the series regular role of Dash, the JFK Jr.-esque fiancé of Jenna Dewan-Tatum‘s reluctant witch, TVLine has learned exclusively.

He replaces Gossip Girl‘s Patrick Heusinger, who departed the project earlier this month for creative reasons.

Lifetime handed Witches a 10-episode order back in January. The series centers on Joanna Beauchamp (Julia Ormond) and her two adult daughters Freya (Dewan-Tatum) and Ingrid (American Dreams’ Rachel Boston), both of whom unknowingly are their family’s next generation of witches.

The cast also includes Mädchen Amick as Joanna’s sister Wendy.

Maggie Friedman, who helmed ABC’s similarly-themed Eastwick, will serve as showrunner.
