THE 5 LIVES OF "CRISS ANGEL MINDFREAK"

SEASON FIVE OF "CRISS ANGEL MINDFREAK" FEATURES FIVE DEATH-DEFYING ONE-HOUR EPISODES PREMIERING WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 12 AT 10 PM ET/PT ON A&E

NEW YORK, NY, JULY 29, 2009 � Criss Angel puts himself to the ultimate life or death test each week in the fifth season of the hit A&E original series "Criss Angel Mindfreak" as he attempts five death-defying demonstrations during each one-hour episode. Season five premieres with "White Death" on Wednesday, August 12 at 10 PM ET/PT.

Criss Angel's visionary approach to the art of magic escapes the confines of tradition, the world-renowned mystifier is known for his incredible illusions, death-defying escapes, fearless demonstrations, and astonishing physical feats. In his most daring season of "Mindfreak" to date, Criss ups the ante by attempting five of the most dangerous demonstrations in magic. Each week he will attempt to defy the natural laws of science in new and innovative ways and will be challenged with a way to live� or a way to die. Each one-hour episode will feature a variety of different illusions and culminate in one grand, never-before-seen demonstration that will blow viewers minds.

The season premiere will be "White Death," on Wednesday, August 12 at 10 PM ET/PT and the five episodes include:

"White Death" � Criss takes the "Buried Alive" escape to an unprecedented level as he is shackled and placed in a transparent coffin that is buried in ice and snow. Will he escape or succumb to hypothermia, suffocation or the risk of the ground collapsing on top of him? But before he makes his attempt, Criss takes to the streets to perform hist most amazing and mind-boggling mysticism and demonstrations raw in spectator's faces!

"Terminal Velocity" - Criss attempts to teleport himself twice! First he drops an object from more than 250 feet above the Las Vegas strip and reach the bottom in time to catch it in one continuous camera shot. And in front of hundreds of spectators he attempts to vanish in mid-air and reappear in an impossible location.

"Death Crash" � In his most death-defying illusion to date, Criss will hide in one of five coffins and the spectators, unaware of which coffin he has chosen, will send a merciless driver to smash the coffins into splinters.

"Death Field" - Criss is challenged to safely traverse a field of live explosives in less than five minutes where the risk for serious injury, if not death, is extremely high.

"Mass Levitation" � Criss takes levitation to new heights by levitating an entire Las Vegas crowd whose safety he is responsible for. This demonstration requires intense concentration, should he fail some will fall and face certain injury.

"Criss Angel Mindfreak" is produced for A&E Network by Angel Productions Worldwide Incorporated (APWI) and Baram Productions. Criss Angel, Dave Baram and Erich Recker serve as executive producers. Executive producers for A&E are Robert Sharenow and Elaine Frontain Bryant.
