Criss Angel Is Coming To Spike - Bigger, Badder, And Better Than Ever" src="http://images.bwwstatic.com/columnpic6/24B0B7730-F7A8-1B6F-B78B9EA8DF506B6D.jpg" alt="" width="200" align="left" border="0" hspace="10" />

Criss Angel sets out to confirm he's the greatest magician of all time in Spike's new original series (title to be announced shortly). Criss has been revolutionizing the art of magic for more than a decade, but in this series, Criss takes his illusions and demonstrations to the next level, with an entirely new look and feel. Each week, Angel will attempt bold and audacious demonstrations never attempted by any mystifier in history. For the first time ever in any magic programming, Criss will reveal the creative process beyond the magic as he lets the audience behind closed doors into the creative "think tank" where his team brainstorms, debates and prepares the most spectacular illusions in history. This unprecedented access will demonstrate the methods and secrets that go into designing, building and executing these incredible feats.

Viewers will also get a glimpse into Angel's dangerous and mysterious life along with a host of new and intriguing characters and celebrity guests.

The episodes will be themed and focus on mind-blowing magic, the supernatural, death-defying escapes, and astonishing physical stunts that will challenge the very laws of nature. Spike has ordered 11 one-hour episodes of the series, which goes into production this spring in Las Vegas and locations across the country. The show is executive produced and directed by Criss Angel for APWI, Inc., David Baram and Erich Recker for LBI Entertainment and is slated to premiere this fall on Spike. The deal was brokered by Scott Lonker and Eric Wattenberg of CAA, who represent Angel.

"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," said Sharon Levy, Executive Vice President, original series, Spike TV.
