When he done with this whole Events business, Channel 4 has announced that Derren Brown will be part of a new web series entitled, The Science of Scams. Each episode will feature Brown and scientist Kat Akingbade debunking paranormal and psychic phenomenon.

Each episode of Science of Scams will feature a hoax film that appears to show unexplained activity such as ghosts, chi energy or telekinesis.

Brown will introduce each spoof video in the manner of Rod Serling’s introductions for The Twilight Zone, while Akingbade will demonstrate the science behind the phenomena.

The series will appear on it’s own dedicated site as well as the Channel 4′s YouTube channel. Sounds like a fun time.

    Lets hope the first one debunks the nonsense of using the Wisdom of Crowds to predict lottery numbers.

    i was quite impressed with derren's prediction of the lottery, no one will even know the true story, i think he is a very smart and talented man

    its already been proven as rubbish, it was a split screen trick , even with the camera seemingly moving around, have a look on youtube , nobody can predict the lottery , if that was so , people like darren brown would be able to predict when terrorist attacks are going to happen , think about it , you wouldnt happen to believe in time travel would you ?

    The whole lot was a con, nothing more than smoke and mirrors. Easy to do with a large buget that you dont have to layout for a “one number out” last scam. Totally upset with the whole shows. Darran, show me shomthing i cant do with a large buget!
