This teaser is out on YouTube, but not yet ABC.com. ABC has this page with more information about the show, but no surprises. Here’s what we know about “David Blaine: Dive of Death”:

  • David Blaine will hang upside down from a wire, five stories in the air, using a pair of electromagnetic boots, for 60 hours.
  • He will pull himself up only to hydrate himself and restore circulation — meaning that he’ll sleep upside down.
  • His dismount, to occur during Wednesday’s special, is a closely guarded secret.
  • The special will feature much more of Blaine’s street magic than we have seen in the past.
  • Daniel Garcia, the genius behind Fraud, Fallen, (and a universe of other effects)  was one of Blaine’s consultants for the show.

Considering all that we do know, this show is going to rock. But what will the ending be?

The show will air at 9 p.m. EST Wednesday, Sept. 24, on the ABC Network. Seven days… let the countdown begin!
