About the Show
Magician Mat Franco, who last year rose above tens of thousands of acts to become the Season 9 winner of NBC's hit reality-competition series "America's Got Talent," brings his special "Mat Franco's Got Magic" to NBC. The special features appearances by Neil Patrick Harris, Heidi Klum, Rob Gronkowski, Jason Mraz, Penn & Teller and others.
"Mat Franco's Got Magic" captures Mat traveling from his home in Rhode Island to Las Vegas, stopping off at incredible locations, wowing celebrities, performing street magic and visiting the family, friends and everyday Americans who helped make his dream come true. When he reaches his final destination, Mat learns what it takes to put on a high-profile show and fulfill his dreams of becoming a headlining act in Las Vegas at the LINQ Hotel & Casino.
Franco is the first and only magician to win NBC's "America's Got Talent." Almost entirely self-taught, Mat began developing his own shows before the age of 10 and took the stage at the Riviera Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas by the time he was 15.
"Mat Franco's Got Magic" is produced by FremantleMedia North America and Syco Entertainment and distributed internationally by FremantleMedia International. Executive producers are Thom Beers, Toby Gorman and Sean Hancock.
