Syfy has acquired unscripted series Troy: Street Magic featuring British magician Troy Von Scheibner for premiere in January. The 10-part series follows Scheibner as as he hits the streets of London with his distinctive blend of close-up magic and spectacular stunts. The London born Von Scheibner began performing magic when he was 12 years old, and three years later was named one of England’s top young magicians. Taking inspiration from London’s iconic landmarks, Scheibner unveils such tricks as teleporting across the historic Tower Bridge and causing it to rain money in London’s financial quarter. The series is slated to premiere January 13 at 10 PM on Syfy.
