ABC Orders Project based on Illusionist David Blaine

Mysterious Stranger: A Book of Magic by David Blaine

ABC has picked up a mystery/thriller project featuring an illusionist based on David Blaine, often called a modern day Houdini due to highly publicized feats of magic and illusion.

Titled In Like Fin — we hate the title and hope someone in the network's marketing department puts their foot down and changes it — the premise is that the title character is involved in a government sting operation.

Alexi Hawley (Castle) will write the pilot script and co-executive produce.

David Blaine is the author Mysterious Stranger: A Book of Magic, published in 2002.
