David Blaine: The Magic Way to Air on ABC April 1


Endurance artist and magician David Blaine is returning to ABC with his reality-defying magical acts for a one-hour special, David Blaine: The Magic Way, on Wednesday, April 1 (10:00 – 11:00 p.m. EDT).

It’s been more than 20 years since Blaine’s first-ever television special, Street Magic, debuted on ABC, which introduced him and his unique brand of magic. Since then, he’s amassed worldwide fame for his signature stunts that have astonished some of the most recognized celebrities, turning the camera on them as millions of viewers at home witness and share their visceral reactions.

Throughout David Blaine: The Magic Way, Blaine’s famous friends make appearances and allow him to work his mysterious talents on them.

Featured stars include Odell Beckham Jr., Emily Blunt and John Krasinski, Tom Brady and Gisele Bündchen, Dave ChappelleJames CordenBryan Cranston, David Dobrik, Dr. Dre, Jamie Foxx, Derek and Hannah Jeter, Michael Jordan, and Aaron Paul.

Since Street Magic aired in 1997 on ABC, Blaine has appeared in numerous live television events and specials, each more dangerous and surreal than the one before. From Buried Alive and Frozen in Time to Vertigo, Blaine has repeatedly pushed himself beyond the limits of human endurance.

He has survived being entombed in an underground plastic box beneath a three-ton water tank for seven days with no food and little water, was encased in a large block of ice in New York City’s Times Square and stood atop a 100-foot-tall pillar in New York’s Bryant Park for 36 hours without a safety net.

Blaine’s last television special, Beyond Magic, aired in 2016 on ABC. Did you get a chance to watch the special? Let us know what you thought about it in the comments below.

David Blaine: The Magic Way is produced by D Blaine Productions for the ABC Television Network. You can watch the first promo below.
