Watch: ‘Houdini’ Miniseries Trailer Starring Adrien Brody

Nearly 90 years after Harry Houdini’s death, the fascination for the legendary illusionist and escape artist still lingers, hence a two-part miniseries on History simply titled “Houdini,” for which a trailer recently appeared on the web.

Adrien Brody will star as the titular showman, along with “House of Cards'” Kristen Connolly as his wife Bess. It will focus on Houdini as he finds fame, engages in espionage, battles spiritualists and encounters important figures from his time.

The miniseries also stars Tom Benedict Knight and Eszter Onodi. It’s written by Nicholas Meyer and directed by Uli Edel. Lionsgate Television and A&E Television Networks produce.

Part 1 of “Houdini” will air on History Sept. 1, with the second part airing Sept. 2.

    I hope and pray that “Houdini” doesn’t contain a similar bizarre music soundtrack like the recent Lizzie Borden (Ricci) film. It will ruin it.
