The wife of Harry Blackstone Jr. has announced a new magic show to air in 2009.
The Inside Magic blog published a letter from Gay Blackstone detailing tapings for a 13-part series related to magic, to air in January on MyNetworkTV. Though short on details about the show, the letter invites magicians and their families to attend tapings from 7 to 9 p.m. Nov. 18-20 at Renmar Studios, located at 846 N. Cahuenga Blvd. in Hollywood. From the letter:
“With the success of the 2008 World Magic Awards, Associated Television International, some of the brightest names in magic and myself, the executive producer of this event, are bringing to television a 13 part magic series airing on Fox MyNetwork beginning January 2009. This hasn’t been done in several years and has the world of magic buzzing. I would love to have you in the audience as my guest to share this very special event.”
Blackstone is the wife of legendary Harry Blackstone, Jr., who passed away in May, 1997. She leads the production company Blackstone Magik Enterprises, created by Harry in 1971. That gives us a great feeling about what the special will be.
But, MyNetworkTV is the network that aired “Secrets of Psychics Revealed,” “Secrets of Street Magic Finally Revealed” and the Masked Magician’s latest foray into exposure, “Magic’s Biggest Secrets Finally Revealed.”
