I’m super pumped for this, have been since I first heard it was greenlit. Check it out between family fun on Labor Day weekend. I mean Adrien Brody, what’s not to love.

Here is what its about:

Before David Blaine and David Copperfield, there was one man whose name was synonymous with being the master of illusion and escape – Harry Houdini. HOUDINI follows the man behind the magic as he finds fame, engages in espionage, battles spiritualists and encounters the greatest names of the era, from U.S. presidents to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and Grigori Rasputin. The drama will chronicle the life of a man who can defy death through his stunts, his visions and his mastery of illusion.

Lots of good stuff coming to BBC America next year.

I’ve been looking forward to this show since it was picked up by WGN America. They have done a fantastic job with Salem and I think this show has a lot of potential for a historical drama. Keep it on your radar when it premieres on July 27th on WGN.

Very pleased to announce this new drama series for BBC America.

TCA Update

Nothing too substantial has happened yet for the most part due to the networks that have done panels so far in the first two days. The big news yesterday was the talk of A Young Doctor’s Notebook which stars Daniel Radcliffe and Jon Hamm and premieres on Ovation later this year. Hallmark presented yesterday as well and announced more television movies for the channel as well as talking about the new season of series When Calls the Heart. 

On the non-fiction and reality side Nat Geo did a big presentation yesterday and Discovery is doing their presentations today on all of their new programming. Like I mentioned before if you want all the latest breaking news and new info from every panel the best bet is the #tca14 tag on twitter where the critics live tweet from the panels.
