And this time we will be weaving in a few moments of pure magic, where we just leave the audience in awe and wondering how they did it!

"BREAKING MAGIC is that rare intersection where fact meets fantasy, and is one of the most successful shows for DNI to date," said Sarah Davies, Vice President of Production & Development for Factual programming for DNI. "The series showcases both the art of entertaining visuals and practical theory through impromptu performances filmed internationally, and audiences are captivated by the explosive thrills and science behind the spells. The pure reactions of the audiences speak for themselves."

"We're delighted to be making more BREAKING MAGIC for Discovery as it combines three of the company's core strengths: magic, science, and breaking things," said Paul Gilheany, executive producer for Objective Productions.
