Because she wasn't done delighting fans of weed and...prison?, Jenji Kohan, the creator of Weeds and Orange is the New Black is now working on a "provocative period drama" for HBO about...Salem witches!


Via to The Hollywood Reporter:

The untitled Salem period drama explores the circumstances around one of the most compelling chapters in American history where intolerance and repression set neighbor against neighbor and led a town to mass hysteria.
