Dynamo Returns With New Three Part Special Project 7

News Image
Award-winning magician Dynamo is returning to screens next year with a new, three part special, Project 7, for Sky One and NOW TV.

The Sky original will take viewers on a journey across the globe to watch Dynamo perform close-up miracles, impossible predictions and unbelievable feats of magic that will have a lasting effect both on him and the people he interacts with.

The ambitious, visually stunning special co-produced by Phil McIntyre Television, Inner Circle Films and Motion Content Group will air on Sky One and streaming service NOW TV in the UK and Ireland in 2020.

Dynamo said: "This show has been a passion project of mine for almost 3 years and represents a whole new approach to the genre. I believe that now more than ever people need a sense of magic in their lives so I can’t wait for everyone to see what I've been working on."

Phil Edgar-Jones, Director of Sky Arts and Sky's Head of Entertainment said: "Dynamo has carved out an illustrious reputation in the world of magic and his skill and mastery is going to astound our viewers beyond belief. I can't wait to see him in action."

Abigail Adams, Executive Producer at Motion Content Group said: "We're thrilled to be bringing Dynamo and his unique take on magic to Sky. After five years without Dynamo on our screens, this series will be a long-overdue treat."

Dynamo's ascent from a working-class magician, hailing from the poverty stricken Delph Hill estate on the outskirts of Bradford, in the north of England, to multi award-winning, global star, has been nothing short of miraculous.

The show was commissioned by Zai Bennett, Managing Director of Content at Sky UK and Ireland, and Phil Edgar Jones, Director of Sky Arts and Sky’s Head of Entertainment. Shirley Jones is the commissioning editor and the series will be executive produced by Lucy Ansbro for Phil McIntyre Television, Dan Albion for Inner Circle Films and Abigail Adams for Motion Content Group.
