will be returning to TV in a new special that will air on November 19, 2013 on ABC.
He is not only returning to TV with a new 90-minute special, from all appearances, he's returning to his roots performing close-up magic for small audiences. In this case, the audiences will be celebrities (more on that later). In the limited press thus far, there's no mention of any large-scale endurance or other stunt.
"For this special, I wanted to focus only on the magic and the people, so for the first time in over a decade, I concentrated just on doing simple things that could be done anywhere to capture the reactions that I fell in love with," says Blaine in an Entertainment Weekly story.
The Entertainment Weekly story lists lots of celebrities such as Kanye West, Katy Perry, Robert De Niro, Will Smith, Harrison Ford, George W. Bush, Olivia Wilde, Jamie Foxx, Aaron Paul and Bryan Cranston. In the special, Blaine performs for these celebrities in their own homes.
In addition to the Entertainment Weekly story, you can read some coverage in People that talks about Blaine's performance for Aaron Paul and Bryan Cranston, which you'll find here.
