New Channel for Derren Brown

    British illusionist Derren Brown is heading to Netflix after the SVOD service ordered a new special and scooped up two of his previous mind-bending specials. The move comes after Brown’s live U.S debut Secret had a successful run off-Broadway last year.

    Netflix is to launch a new Brown special on the streaming service and it will also air Derren Brown: The Push and Derren Brown: Miracle, which aired on Channel 4 in the UK.

    I hear that Brown’s new special, details of which are being kept under wraps so as to avoid spoiling the surprise, is as “daring” and “jaw-dropping” as previous efforts. Meanwhile, Derren Brown: The Push is a controversial experiment in which he exposes the psychological secrets of obedience and social compliance, while Derren Brown: Miracle is a televised adaptation of the atheist’s stage show, which draws heavily on religious influences.

    The shows are produced by Vaudeville Productions, the production company formed by Brown, alongside former Objective Productions execs Michael Vine, Andrew O’Connor and Paul Sandler, in 2015. O’Connor, who exec produces the show, and Sandler left the All3Media-backed indie in 2015 to form ITV-backed Cats on the Roof Media, but Vaudeville is not part of this group.

    Brown is the latest high-profile Brit to move to a well-funded streaming service and follows the likes of Charlie Brooker, who along with House of Tomorrow partner Annabel Jones, took Black Mirror to Netflix, and Sharon Horgan, who recently struck a major deal with Amazon.
    He has recently been performing in the UK with Derren Brown: Underground, a show designed for an international audience. The move will undoubtedly raise Brown’s profile in the U.S. and comes as Derren Brown: Secret, which blends mind-reading and psychological illusion, heads back to New York later this year as a stage show as well as a nationwide tour in 2019.

    Derren Brown: The Push launches on Netflix on February 27.
