Here's some more information on Celebracadabra - this is what I posted on the Ellusionist blog:
Celebracadabra VH1 Series Sponsored By Ellusionist
In development news, VH1 has given the green light to a brand new project Celebracadabra.
Seven TV and film stars vie for the title of Best Celebrity Magician when they gather at The Magic Castle and other venues in Los Angeles, the worlds most famous club for magicians, and attempt to learn and perform tricks normally left to the professionals.
Guided by veteran magicians, the competitors face tough crowds and a master panel of judges (including Max Maven and Jeff McBride) who determine which celebrities get to advance to the next round and a shot at a $100,000 grand prize provided by Ellusionist.com Magic Training.
Ellusionist is sponsoring the Series and will provide downloadable tricks for people to learn, tie-ins with the VH1 web site, contests, and additional rare footage shot by the Ellusionist team while on the Celebracadabra set.
Executive producers are Michael Hirschorn, Shelly Tatro, Karla Hidalgo and Chris Martin.
Currently it looks like the Series will debut in April.
I will be providing regular updates & video clips on the Ellusionst blog - http://blog.ellusionist.com
