DAVID BLAINE AMAZES THE MOST RECOGNIZABLE AND INTRIGUING PEOPLE IN THE WORLD IN A GROUNDBREAKING NEW SPECIAL, "DAVID BLAINE: REAL OR MAGIC" ON ABC

David Blaine returns to primetime television in a groundbreaking new special "David Blaine: Real or Magic," this November on the ABC Network.

David Blaine's signature brand of street magic mystifies the most recognizable celebrities in the world, including Jamie Foxx, Bryan Cranston, Aaron Paul, Ricky Gervais, Katy Perry, Woody Allen, and Robert DeNiro, to name a few. He goes into the homes of Kanye West and Harrison Ford, Will Smith and Olivia Wilde. He visits Stephen Hawking at his office in Cambridge University. Blaine also travels the world, astonishing people from all walks of life with never-before seen, inconceivable magic.

Blaine has been captivating the world with death-defying feats for nearly two decades. He's been buried alive in New York City for a week, encased inside a six-ton block of ice for three days and nights, he stood atop a 100-foot-tall pillar in Bryant Park for 36 hours without a safety net, survived on nothing but water inside a transparent box in London for 44 days, and spent one week submerged in a sphere-shaped aquarium at Lincoln Center, at the end of which he attempted to break the world record for breath holding. A year later, he succeeded in breaking that record live on "The Oprah Winfrey Show," holding his breath for 17 minutes and 4 seconds. In 2008, Blaine hung upside down for over 60 hours in New York's central Park. Most recently, in October of 2012, he stood in the middle of a million volts of electricity for 73 consecutive hours.

With "Real or Magic," Blaine redefines magic once again, eliciting reactions that both shock and defy all expectations.

Executive produced by David Blaine and Radical Media. Directed by Emmy award winner Matthew Akers. Multimedia entertainment studio Electus, today announced that its global distribution arm, Electus International, has acquired international rights to the special.
