PITTSBURGH (Newsradio 1020 KDKA) - Pittsburgh magician and rising superstar Lee Terbosic is starring in a new series on the Science Channel.

Houdini’s Last Secrets will air every Sunday in January at 10:00p.m. 

It will feature Terbosic and Harry Houdini’s longest living relative, George Hardeen.​

Terbosic joined KDKA Radio on Friday to tell listeners what the show is about.

"It’s focused around the life of Harry Houdini and some of his secrets; not only in his life, but in his magic,” Terbosic said.

"Were going to pull back the curtain on the science behind some of the stunts. Not so much the magic, more of the stunt aspect.”

Over the past three and a half months, Terbosic and Hardeen have traveled to London, Hungary, New York, and other states for filming.  

Terbosic will also be performing stunts. He will be buried alive, he will submerge himself and he will catch a speeding bullet.

In 2016, Terbosic famously recreated the same upside down straight jacket stunt Houdini performed at Liberty Avenue and Wood Street 100 years prior.

Odd Mysterious and Fascinating History of Pittsburgh's John Schalcosky says Houdini performed in Pittsburgh many times and actually almost died twice while in town!
