Daredevil Nik Wallenda Going Big for His Next TV Stunt EW

Discovery and Nik Wallenda have set their next stunt programming event, with plans for the “King of the High Wire” to cross the Chicago skyline untethered, reports EW.com’s Inside TV.

No other details were provided when Discovery made the announcement at its upfront presentation Thursday. Wallenda has proved a strong draw, with his “Skywire Live” crossing -- which featured him walking on a wire across the Grand Canyon -- drawing more than 10 million viewers, the story notes.
