Magician To Offer Behind-The-Scenes Looks At Stunts In New Series 1/29/2013 7:10 AM Eastern

Magician Criss Angel is returning to cable television with a new series on Spike TV, the network announced Tuesday.

The 11-episosde, as-yet-titled series will take Angel’s art of magic and illusions “to the next level” featuring demonstrations never attempted before, according to Spike. Angel will also reveal the creative process beyond the magic that will give viewers unprecedented access into the methods and secrets that go into designing, building and executing his stunts.

Previously Angel’s Criss Angel: Mindfreak series ran for six seasons on A&E Network, ending in 2010.

“Spike is thrilled to be able to showcase the amazing talents of Criss Angel, a perfect fit for our evolving adult brand. Criss has grown immeasurably as an artist and we are excited to give our viewers never-before granted access into the inner workings of his secret world and his mind,” Sharon Levy, executive vice president of original series at Spike TV, said in a statement.
