Watch: Adrien Brody Is The World's Greatest Escape Artist In Trailer For 'Houdini' Miniseries

He was a man who could do the impossible. He thrilled the entire world as one of the greatest magicians and illusionists of all time. And no, we’re not talking about Criss Angel. Harry Houdini continues to fascinate decades after his mysterious death, commonly thought to be caused by appendicitis, though rumors of foul play persist to this day. And none other than Adrien Brody will bring this signature turn of the century saga to life.

The full length trailer for the History Channel miniseries “Houdini” has dropped, indicating the series will track Houdini’s rise to international stardom. Uli Edel (“The Baader Meinhof Complex“) directs a handsome production spanning four hours. It should be great to see Brody stretch into such a rich character. And yes, that’s Kristin Connolly of “House Of Cards” fame as Houdini’s wife.

The series will air on September 1st and 2nd. Watch below.
