“Witches of East End,” a supernatural drama starring Emmy-winning actress Julia Ormond (“Sabrina,” “Legends of the Fall”), is set to premiere Sunday night on Lifetime Television.

The pilot features wedding scenes shot at the Hay House in Macon during two days last year. Producers hired regional talent to portray groomsmen and wedding guests. Outdoor scenes for the pilot were shot in Wilmington, N.C., before the production relocated to Vancouver for the rest of the series.

“We needed a beautiful interior of a mansion, and we found the Hay House,” line producer Kelly Manners told The Telegraph last year. “It suits our needs perfectly.”

The show adapts the best-selling novel of the same name by author Melissa de la Cruz. The plot follows the lives of the Beauchamp women, the matriarch (Ormond) and her two daughters. The drama begins as the daughters discover their magical heritage.

The season consists of 10 episodes. Mädchen Amick (“Mad Men,” “Damages”), Jenna Dewan Tatum (“American Horror Story”) and Rachel Boston (“In Plain Sight”) also star.

“Witches of East End” is scheduled to air at 10 p.m. Sunday.
