Scorpion Eating! TV Pilots! Japanese TV! [Magic Bulletin]

Posted by Michael on February 4th, 2016

Magicians from Impossible visited the Birmingham Mail offices and the video is our lead on this fine Thursday. Magical Bones and Chris Cox joined Jonathan Goodwin, who continues his cross UK scorpion eating tour.

With reports of Greg Berlanti creating an Archie comics pilot for The CW (yup, I really just wrote that), iTricks got to wondering what, if anything, was happening with The CW’s pilot for a series based on The Illusionist. It is no longer on the current Variety pilot scorecard, so you’ll just have to content yourself with the new Archie show.

Speaking of TV, the Brookings Register says that recently a Japanese TV crew was following around friend of iTricks Reza to get footage for his upcoming appearance on popular Nippon Television Network show Sekai No Hatte Madde Itte Q.
