TruTV gets in on magic act

US cablenet TruTV has become the latest channel to commission a street magic series, slating Undercover Magic (working title) for summer 2014.

The 12-part series is being produced by Fields Entertainment and 11 Television with Simon Fields and Kevin Healey executive producing.

The programme features comic magician Michael Carbonaro performing baffling tricks on unsuspecting members of the public and catching them on hidden cameras.

It will form part of TruTV’s Funseekers strand of programming that already includes Killer Karaoke and Impractical Jokers.

The Turner-owned channel is the latest network to turn to street magic for a new commission.
