Magician David Blaine will return to ABC for new one-hour special “David Blaine: The Magic Way,” on Wednesday, April 1 at 10 p.m. ET. Since special “Street Magic” aired in 1997 on ABC, Blaine has appeared in numerous live television events and specials, each more dangerous and surreal than the one before. From “Buried Alive” and “Frozen in Time” to “Vertigo,” Blaine has repeatedly pushed himself beyond the limits of human endurance. He has survived being entombed in an underground plastic box beneath a three-ton water tank for seven days with no food and little water, was encased in a large block of ice in New York City’s Times Square and stood atop a 100-foot-tall pillar in New York’s Bryant Park for 36 hours without a safety net.
Blaine’s last television special, “Beyond Magic,” aired in 2016 on ABC.
Celebrities appearing with Blaine include James Corden, Bryan Cranston, Aaron Paul, Jamie Foxx, and NBA legend Michael Jordan.
