AXN to reveal magical new series
Seeing is believing, when AXN unleashes its latest original production, The Elements: Cosentino, on Jan. 18. Hailed as Australia’s most successful magician, illusionist and escapologist, The Elements: Cosentino will see the man himself performing mesmerizing street magic and epic stunts against iconic backdrops in Singapore, Malaysia, the Philippines and Taiwan.
“AXN is all about redefining action and Cosentino is the true embodiment of the channel: he’s adventurous, thrilling, intriguing and full of surprises. As the leader in original productions, AXN has teamed up with Cosentino to create a series that fuses riveting and mystifying illusions in relatable, local settings across the region. We also invited celebrities in four countries to assist Cosentino with his tricks so viewers will be excited to see popular and familiar faces appearing in each episode,” said Virginia Lim, senior vice president and head of Content, Production and Marketing, Sony Pictures Television Networks, Asia.
The four-part series will be themed around the four elements – earth, wind, fire and water – and viewers can expect Cosentino’s unrivalled showmanship while he performs astonishing large-scale illusions and death-defying escapes. Celebrity appearances in each of the episodes include Asia’s Got Talent’s Alan Wong and Justin Bratton, Singapore’s Aaron Aziz, Tabitha Nauseur and Sezairi, Malaysia’s Diana Danielle, Juliana Evans and Joe Flizzow, Philippines Alex Gonzaga, Bianca King, Marc Nelson and Rovilson Fernandez and Taiwan’s Alex Niu and Ozi.
“I had such an incredible experience filming this series in Asia,” said Cosentino. “Despite the language barrier, people’s reactions to magic are universal – from the kids in Manila to royalty in Malaysia. Magic can truly transcend cultural barriers and that’s what The Elements: Cosentino is all about: uniting the region.”
The Elements: Cosentino premieres on Jan. 18 at 9 p.m. first and exclusive on AXN.
