History TV18 to present biopic on ‘Houdini’

MUMBAI: History TV18 will showcase
the power of illusion by presenting a
new show ‘Houdini’, a dramatised
biopic of the world’s greatest
illusionist and escape artist who
cheated death multiple times.
The show launches on 1 October. It
will air at 9 pm every Thursday and
‘Houdini’ follows the tales of Harry
Houdini from his humble beginnings at
circus sideshows to sold-out concert
halls, and how Eastern European
immigrant Ehrich Weiss rose to become
a household name across the globe –
The show delves behind the curtain
into his life through his stunts, his
visions and his mastery of illusion.
Joining Brody is Kristen Connolly as
Bess Houdini, the love of Harry’s life
and right hand when it came to some
of his most amazing feats, and Evan
Jones as Jim Collins, Harry’s
assistant and confidant.
As a norm, a magician never reveals
the secrets of his trade. But in this
new mini-series, viewers will see his
close relationship with his mother,
which led him to spiritualists after
her death, and also the secrets behind
some of Houdini’s most successful
illusions like the Chinese Water
Torture Cell and Escape from
Murderer’s Row.
