In an unannounced storming of the gates at the recent NATPE in Las Vegas, Marco Tempest and the production and distribution execs from NewMagic Communications scored large with visiting programming execs from around the world. “I can’t tell you specific results just yet, because negotiations aren’t yet complete,” said Tempest. “But out of 22 meetings, I can tell you we had 22 interested parties. Now we just have to make sure the most beneficial deals are made for everyone involved. As of now, we expect to be in full production by late spring, delivering episodes by September of this year.” During the whirlwind Las Vegas visit, Tempest also signed up a half dozen local magic celebrities to be on the creative team for the series, and to be special guests on the first series of episodes.
