Zig Zag is partnering with Entertainment One Television and Canada's Yap Films for its latest magic series, Close Up Kings.

Yap is co-producing and EOne Television has acquired the international distribution rights in all media for the series.

The eight-parter features a New York City-based street magic trio comprising Loki ‘The Romantic’, Magick ‘The Master’ Balay’ and Johnny Blaze, aka ‘The Hustler’. The series follows them on a North American road trip with each magician seeking to outdo the others and showcase their own close up magic skills and illusions.

“Zig Zag is one of the UK’s most respected producers of innovative award-winning content,” says Peter Emerson, president eOne Television International, which is working with Zig Zag for the first time.

Zig Zag’s vp commercial and current production Leila Monks and Justina Hemperek, eOne Television’s manager for factual acquisitions, UK & Europe, brokered the deal.

The series is a coproduction between Discovery Networks International and Outdoor Life Network in Canada. Discovery has acquired the rights to the series for parts of Western and Eastern Europe, the Middle East and Africa and eOne will handle distribution in all other markets.
