Don’t Trust Andrew Mayne Official Press Release
A&E LAUNCHES A NEW ORIGINAL SERIES
“DON’T TRUST ANDREW MAYNE”
PREMIERING MONDAY, JANUARY 13TH AT 10PM ET/PT
THIRTEEN HALF-HOUR EPISODE SERIES FEATURING NEXT-GENERATION ILLUSIONIST SHOWCASES REVENGE IN A MAGICAL LIGHT
New York, NY – DECEMBER 9, 2013 – A&E Network has pulled its newest series out of its hat. “Don’t Trust Andrew Mayne,” features the wildly innovative, mischief-loving magician Andrew Mayne, as he sets out to reinvent revenge.
His illusions are mind blowing, but what he loves most is helping people get even. From explosions, to disappearing cars and slight-of-hand, Andrew’s charm and wit leaves unsuspecting men and women in disbelief. “Don’t Trust Andrew Mayne” premieres Monday, January 13th at 10PM ET/PT with two back-to-back episodes.
Andrew Mayne has worked behind-the-scenes for some of the world’s top magicians, and now it’s his turn to show viewers what he’s got.
On his mission to help people teach a lesson to those who’ve wronged them, he sets his mark for mischief and uses in-your-face street magic and large scale “knock your socks off” illusions with each assignment. With one large illusion and five smaller illusions per episode, Andrew shows us why he is one of the most prolific magic creators of the last decade.
Mayne doles out some revenge and gives wrongdoers a taste of their own medicine. Cars “melt away”, iPhones wind up in a “pickle” and someone’s precious motorcycle gets shot out of the sky. With more than 400 tricks in his pocket, thousands of YouTube hits, and a dozen science-fiction, fantasy and thriller books under his belt, his fans, coined the ‘Mayniacs,’ have followed him and his unique brand of illusion across five continents.
“Don’t Trust Andrew Mayne” is produced by Joke Productions for A&E. Joke Fincioen and Biagio Messina serve as executive producers for Joke Productions. Andrew Mayne and Mary Jaras also serve as executive producers on the series. Drew Tappon and Brad Holcman serve as executive producers for A&E Television Networks.
