Good Witch 6/14 on Hallmark Channel





THE MAGIC IS BACK ON SUNDAYS!
GREY HOUSE’S MILESTONE BIRTHDAY IS CAUSE TO CELEBRATE AND MAY
ALSO SHED NEW LIGHT ON THE MERRIWICK-DAVENPORT CURSE IN
‘GOOD WITCH’ PREMIERING JUNE 14, ON HALLMARK CHANNEL

STUDIO CITY, CA – May 19, 2020 – Middleton gathers together to strike a pose as they
celebrate Grey House’s milestone birthday in “The Tableau,” while the festivities may also bring
to light new information about the Merriwick-Davenport curse on “Good Witch,” premiering
Sunday, June 14 (9 p.m. ET/PT), on Hallmark Channel.

Cassie (Catherine Bell, “Army Wives,” “JAG”) prepares for Grey House’s 225th birthday
celebration and puts Nathaniel Merriwick’s paintings on display. The artwork inspires Martha
(Catherine Disher, “Abby Hatcher”) to direct a tableau vivant to mark the occasion, but with only
two days before the event they’ll have to work fast. Sam (James Denton, “Devious Maids,”
“Desperate Housewives”) tries to appeal to a reluctant Adam’s (Scott Cavalheiro, “The Indian
Detective”) competitive side when encouraging him to keep up his post-op physical therapy.
Cassie welcomes Grey House guest Hayley (Isabel Kanaan, “Haunted or Hoax”), a social media
influencer who is forced to see what life looks like outside the confines of her phone’s camera
lens when her network connection vanishes and she can no longer post photos for her followers.
Martha recruits Stephanie (Kylee Evans, “The Strain”) to head up the town’s Community
Greenhouse committee but the mayor doesn’t get the preferential treatment she hoped for when
the plots are handed out. Meanwhile, Joy’s (Katherine Barrell, “Wynonna Earp”) intuition has
suddenly fallen by the wayside, leading to a misunderstanding when she and Carter (Jason Diaz,
“The 100”) agree to set each other up on blind dates. Taking part in the tableau vivant
temporarily brings Abigail (Sarah Power, “Killjoys”) and Donovan (Marc Bendavid, “Murdoch
Mysteries”) together but in the process, make a discovery that could bring them closer to the key
to breaking the curse.

“Good Witch,” is a Whizbang Films production in association with ITV Studios America.
Darin Goldberg, Orly Adelson, Jonathan Eskenas, Craig Pryce and Frank Siracusa are executive
producers. Catherine Bell is co-executive producer. Janina Barrett is supervising producer. Colin
Brunton serves as producer. Alison Reid directed from a script by Erinne Dobson & Elysse
Applebaum. “Good Witch” is distributed internationally by ITV Studios.
