HBO Max has ordered unscripted competition series The Real Magic Mike (working title), from Eureka Productions and Warner Bros. Unscripted Television in association with Warner Horizon. The series is set to debut on the streaming service later this year.
From the producers behind the Magic Mike franchise and live shows comes an exhilarating and sexy series that will transform a group of men into real-life Magic Mikes. 10 men who have ‘lost their magic’ will come together in a competition series like no other.
They will bare their souls and more as they evolve their bodies, learn to perform spectacular routines, and develop a new level of self-confidence. As they strip off their clothes, they will rid themselves of emotional baggage and regain their mojo but only one will be the Real Magic Mike.
The winner will win a cash prize and an opportunity to perform on the blockbuster Magic Mike Live stage in Las Vegas.
A nationwide casting search is currently underway. If you know someone who might have what it takes, you can sign them up for the casting search here!
