Producers talk Houdini miniseries

World Screen News has posted this clip of executive producer Gerald W. Abrams and Sandra Stern, the COO of television at Lionsgate, discussing the upcoming Houdini miniseries. Abrams confirms that it will be a "cradle to grave" biopic, that it will included almost 300 special effect shots, and that it will open with Houdini's (fictional) hole in the ice bridge jump.

Houdini stars Adrien Brody as Houdini and Kristen Connolly as Bess. The 4-hour miniseries is directed by Uli Edel and will air over the course of two nights on HISTORY starting September 1, 2014.
