For more than a decade, David Blaine has been captivating the world with his high-profile endurance stunts. Starting his career as a magician who appeared to do the impossible with a deck of cards, he was soon following in the footsteps of Houdini, seeking out that which seemed physically impossible, and actually doing it. After mystifying celebrities including Jamie Foxx, Bryan Cranston, Aaron Paul, Ricky Gervais, Katy Perry, Lenny Kravitz, and Will Smith in “Real or Magic,” David returns in a brand new special that is more astonishing, more inconceivable, and more mind-blowing than ever.  The seven specials capture David Blaine's most famous and death-defying stunts, including being buried alive in New York City for a week, being encased inside a six-ton block of ice for three days and three nights, standing atop a 100-foot-tall pillar in Bryant Park for 36 hours without a safety net, surviving on nothing but water inside a transparent box in London for 44 days, and spending a week submerged in a sphere-shaped aquarium at Lincoln Center, at the end of which he attempted to break the world record for breath holding . He later set a new record of 17 minutes 4 seconds live on the Oprah Winfrey show.
