Houdini: Starring Adrien Brody

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

Adrien Brody stars in the titular role and Kristen Connolly is his wife Bess.

It depicts how Houdini 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.
