‘Motherland: Fort Salem’ Casts Kai Bradbury; Ebboney Wilson Joins ‘Legacies’
Exclusive: Kai Bradbury (Warigami) is set for a recurring role on Motherland: Fort Salem, Freeform’s new hourlong drama series from Claws creator Eliot Laurence and executive producers Will Ferrell, Adam McKay and Kevin Messick. Set in an alternate America where witches ended their persecution nearly 300 years ago by cutting a deal with the U.S. government to fight for their country, Motherland: Fort Salem follows three young women – played by Williams, Taylor Hickson and Jessica Sutton — from basic training in combat magic into early deployment. In this world, the traditional roles of gender and power are flipped, with the more dominant women on the front lines fighting looming terrorist threats that are familiar to our world—but with supernatural tactics and weapons. Bradbury plays Gerit, a male witch who comes to Fort Salem and strikes up a whirlwind relationship with Tally (Sutton). Bradbury was most recently seen in the CW’s special presentation film Warigami.

The CW Partners With CBC On Short-Form Samurai Drama ‘Warigami’ As Canadian Broadcaster Unveils Youth Slate

The CW has partnered with Canada’s CBC on a new short-form samurai drama starring The Girlfriend Experience’s Emily Piggford.

Warigami is a ten-part series, consisting of ten minute episodes that is a contemporary samurai saga. Wendy Ohata, played by Piggford, has just made three startling realizations: One, she has a twin brother; two, she’s a kami-jin – a descendent of an ancient Japanese people who can turn paper into deadly weapons; and three, there’s a kami-jin warrior hunting her down for reasons she doesn’t understand.

The series is created by Eddie Kim and directed by Jason Lapeyre, who directed Lifetime’s Who Killed Jon Benet?, with showrunner Andrew Allen, who worked on digital drama Rush: Inspired By Battlefield. Kai Bradbury (The Terror), Akiel Julien (The Next Step), Miho Suzuki (Colossal), and David Hewlett (Stargate: Atlantis) also star.

It is produced by First Love Films and distributed by New Form.
