Magicians and magic fans, there’s another talent show on the way. According to a report from USA Today, CBS has ordered the production of a show called The World’s Best, to arrive some time in the unforeseen future.
According to the article, the show promises to be “”a first-of-its-kind global talent competition that features acts from every genre imaginable, from every corner of the planet.” Contestants will perform on stage in front of a gallery of US and international judges, the latter of which is comprised of 50 individuals who each represent the best of their particular field.
The show is being produced by Mark Burnett (Survivor, The Voice), and Mike Darnell (American Idol, Little Big Voices).
There’s no word on who is hosting, judging, or when it will air, or even start production, so things appear to be very early in the making. That said, if you’re a fan of magic or are a magician who wants another opportunity to try out their skills on a national stage, you’ll probably want to keep this one in the back of your mind.
