Craziest thing: I created a TV show…and it’s going to air on Syfy on March 4th. It’s called WIZARD WARS.
An original, hour-long special exploring how professional magicians transform ordinary objects into jaw-dropping miracles. Two teams of up-and-coming magicians are given four random items (e.g., bubble wrap, fish tank, postcard, 2-liter soda bottle). As soon as they create an original routine featuring each of the objects…they must perform it before a live studio audience and panel of expert judges led by legendary magic duo Penn & Teller.
The winning team of up-and-comers moves on to the Wizard War, in which they go head-to-head against two of our Wizards, an elite group of conjurors that includes two-time World Championship of Magic winner Gregory Wilson, Wynn Resort resident magician Shimshi, YouTube sensation Justin Flom, and Internationally-famous mentalist Angela Funovits. If the up-and-comers defeat the Wizards, they walk away with $10,000.00, and more importantly, the everlasting respect of their peers.
Here’s a the video and the Wired.com story that started it all:
