Northern Ireland footballer Stuart Dallas has hailed the genius of Coleraine magician, Rodd Hogg.

The Leeds United star tweeted a good luck message as Irish TV announced that Rodd’s much awaited new television series will begin on Thursday, August 4 at 8.30pm.

Stuart tweeted: “Don’t miss @roddhogg new tv show.This man is taking magic to a new level.”

The six-part show follows Rodd as he wows audiences across the British Isles with his inimitable brand of close-up magic and illusions.

Filmed and produced by Donegal-based Jacksonsmediatv, the half hour shows will be screened each week on the Irish TV channel (Sky 191) and also repeated every Saturday night at 10pm.

The series was filmed in Liverpool, Co Kerry, Dublin, Northern Ireland, Manchester and London.

Rodd says: “I hope everyone who tunes in will be entertained and amazed by my magic.”

The series explores a number of different themes of his mesmerising craft - close up magic, hypnosis and the power of suggestion, sleight of hand, and even pickpocketing.

Rodd became a member of of The Magic Circle in May two years ago, joining the likes of Prince Charles, Dynamo and Nigel Mansell among its hallowed ranks.
