Cable channel picks up untitled show
Sci Fi Channel has inked a deal to bring Brit “mentalist” sensation Derren Brown across the Pond and into American homes.
Brown’s act is a mixed bag of suggestion, psychology, misdirection and showmanship. Sci Fi has picked up six one-hour episodes of the untitled show, produced by Britain’s Objective Prods.
Cabler is also signing on for a fourth season of both “Ghost Hunters” and “Battlestar Galactica.” America’s favorite paranormal plumbers, Jason Hawes and Grant Wilson, return with 13 episodes of “Ghost Hunters,” while the net has increased its “Galactica” order from 13 to 22 episodes of the intergalactic sci-fi drama, including a special two-hour extended special.
