UKTV’s W Channel to Broadcast Dynamo’s Live Magic Show


LONDON: UKTV’s W channel will air the special one-off television event Dynamo: Live at The O2 on March 30.

After selling out more than 100 dates for his debut live arena tour, Dynamo will become the first magician in history to headline The O2 to an assembled audience of around 10,000 with his critically acclaimed show, Seeing Is Believing. The entire show will be broadcast live on UKTV’s new premium entertainment channel W on Wednesday, March 30, at 7: 30 p.m.

Dynamo said, “I’ve been overwhelmed with all the amazing support from fans I’ve had as I’ve toured the length and breadth of the country. Now I want to make sure that those who couldn’t get tickets can still enjoy the show and hope that those who’ve been to see me will want to relive it again on W.”

Richard Watsham, director of commissioning, added, “I’m delighted to be continuing our relationship with Dynamo by broadcasting this stage show like no other. After four brilliant series of his BAFTA-nominated show Magician Impossible, we’ve missed him! Now viewers will get to share, live, in what he’s been up to, seeing for themselves the extraordinary achievement behind Dynamo: Live.”

Steve North, W’s general manager, said, “Dynamo’s show is the hottest ticket in town and I’m delighted we’ll be bringing our viewers on W this unique broadcast event. It’s a fantastic show combining expert storytelling with knock-out magic.”

Dynamo: Live at The O2 is produced by Inner Circle Films and Phil McIntyre Television. Executive producers are Dan Albion (Inner Circle Films) and Lucy Ansbro (Phil McIntyre Television) with Richard Watsham and Helen Nightingale executive producing for UKTV. The one-off special was ordered by North and commissioned by Watsham.
