New York, NY – November 16, 2022 – Today, ALLBLK, the popular streaming service for Black TV and film from AMC Networks, released the trailer for the new supernatural drama, Wicked City. The 6-episode scripted series, slated to premiere on Thursday, December 1, 2022 from executive producers Tressa “Azarel” Smallwood and Donte Lee, follows a coven of five Black witches who push their supernatural powers to new heights after uncovering dark secrets and accidentally entering the world of the forbidden.
In Wicked City, four young, chic, modern-day witches— Jordan (Shaquita Smith, The Couch), Mona (Mercedez McDowell, The Resident), Angela (Chantal Maurice, P-Valley), and Sherise (Chanel Mack, The Harder They Fall) belong to Charmed City, a coven lead by Tabitha (Vanessa Bell Calloway, Shameless). The witches make the acquaintance of Camille (Taylor Polidore, Snowfall), a naturally powerful witch who is oblivious to her gift. Things take a menacing turn resulting in an accidental death and leading to the witches performing a forbidden resurrection spell. Unfortunately, it is too late, as a dark sinister being is brought back from the other side. Now, between their complicated personal lives, unearthed secrets of the past, and attempt to defeat a powerful wraith, this coven is in for the most dangerous ride of their lives.
Additional cast includes Columbus Short (True To The Game, Remember Me: The Mahalia Jackson Story), Rhonda Morman (Sister Swap: Christmas), Malika Blessing (The Lost Souls Café), and Rolonda Rochelle (Chicago Fires).
