A&E’s reality slate has a new trick up its sleeve, as the cabler adds “Don’t Trust Andrew Mayne” to its primetime lineup in January.

Unscripted program follows veteran illusionist Andrew Mayne as he helps people teach a lesson with street magic and large scale tricks. Mayne hopes to reinvent revenge by giving folks a taste of their own medicine, and often when they’re least expecting it.

A&E ordered 13 halfhour episodes of “Don’t Trust Andrew Mayne” and will bow the series Jan. 13 at 10 p.m.

Show is produced by Joke Prods., with Joke Fincioen and Biagio Messina exec producing. Mayne and Mary Jaras along with A&E’s Drew Tappon and Brad Holcman also exec produce the series.

    I was actually introduced (not person-to-peson) to Andrew Mayne through eBay purchases and later his own site. Every time I walk down the Home Depot isle and I see a small scaffold, I think of Andrew’s innovative approach to vanishes and appearances. I am looking forward to seeing Andrew live and congratulate him for his new TV series.

  2. Andrew is one of the most innovative magicians ever. His imagination and inventiveness have inspired magicians for years. I can’t wait to see this amazing man in his new show. Finally, some real talent on television… imagine that!
