A&E Network has ordered an unscripted show focusing on magic, with a little revenge also in the formula. Deadline.com reports that the cable network greenlighted “Don’t Trust Andrew Mayne,” starring magician Andrew Mayne.
The series will debut Jan. 13, airing two episodes back-to-back, the story says. The show features Mayne “performing illusions designed to help people get even by teaching a lesson to those who’ve wronged them,” the piece adds.
The magician taps tricks ranging from explosions to disappearing automobiles, with each episode featuring one big illusion and five smaller ones, the article notes.
