New Special for Japanese Television
“Marco Tempest’s Magical New York” completes taping for NHK TV
Japan’s NHK television has commissioned a fourth special from Marco Tempest in less than a year. Tempest and his team recently completed video taping the new special, entitled “Marco Tempest’s Magical New York,” in and around New York City.

Previous specials scored 10+ million rations, along with their multiple re-runs, making Tempest one of the best known non-Japanese magicians in Japanese history.

For the new special, Marco not only created and performed, but provide all photography, location support and scripting to wrap up the extensive, 20 location shoot in just 6 days.

With locations including New York landmarks including the top of the Empire State Building, the Brooklyn Bridge, FAO Schwartz, Grand Central Station, Central Park and Times Square, among others, the new special includes 30 new original magic routines, and, as Tempest stated, “it promises to be my best TV work yet!”

The new special will air for the first time in Japan on New Years Day, 2007.
