For those who read between the lines, this post about a new project from Blackstone Magik expressed concern about airing a show on a network that hasn’t been so friendly to magic. Those “read-betweeners” should be comforted to know that the show is taking the time slot formerly held by the extreme exposer Val Valentino.
Karen Brown, of Blackstone Magik, confirmed in an e-mail that another series of “Masters of Illusion” is the show replacing “Magic’s Biggest Secrets Finally Revealed.” The news of what show made room was reported in this post on iTricks. Gay Blackstone (pictured), wife of the deceased Harry Blackstone Jr., and Blackstone Magik officials have been taping the show this week. We hope to hear more from her at a later date. But Brown said that everything with the show is going great so far.
According to the press release, the show will be an extension of “Impossible Magic,” which has aired previously on MyNetwork. The call for auditions was also placed in this post on the Magic Cafe forums. The show is scheduled to air at 9 p.m. Eastern on Mondays starting Jan. 5, 2009. Below is a clip from a previous show:
