Sony Pictures Television Networks, Asia has unveiled a new original series for AXN featuring Australian magician, illusionist and escapologist Cosentino.

The four-part series, The Elements, will premiere in early 2018 first and exclusively on AXN. The show will feature Cosentino’s street magic, large-scale illusions and death-defying escapes, all centered on the theme Earth, Wind, Fire and Water. Filming kicks off this week in Singapore. Cosentino will then take his magic on tour, filming against iconic backdrops in Taipei, Manila and Kuala Lumpur. A range of Asian artists, including singers, actors and models, will join Cosentino as he performs his stunts.

Virginia Lim, the senior VP and head of content, production and marketing, said, “The Elements supports our vision to create a pipeline of original, locally relevant series that engages our viewers both on screen and via social platforms. As a world-renowned illusionist, Cosentino made his AXN debut as a guest star during the Asia’s Got Talent finale episode in 2015. We’re thrilled to partner with Cosentino again to usher in his magic revolution in Asia.”

Cosentino commented: “I am thrilled to be embarking on this new partnership with AXN, who is the undisputed leader of English-language broadcasting across Asia. I am very proud of what we have created with The Elements series. The concept of each episode and the magic and escapology contained within them is unlike anything else that has been seen before.”
