An unscripted Magic Mike series is on the horizon at HBO Max!
There’s more Magic Mike on the way at HBO Max— but not in the way you might expect.
On Friday (April 9), the streaming platform announced that it has ordered a brand new unscripted competition series inspired by the male stripper flick starring Channing Tatum.
Hailing from Eureka Productions and Warner Bros., the series currently has a working title of The Real Magic Mike and aims to transform a group of men into real-life Magic Mikes.
Read up on the official logline for The Real Magic Mike below to see what you can expect from the unscripted series!
10 men who have ‘lost their magic’ will come together in a competition series like no other. They will bare their souls and more as they evolve their bodies, learn to perform spectacular routines, and develop a new level of self-confidence. As they strip off their clothes, they will rid themselves of emotional baggage and regain their mojo but only one will be the Real Magic Mike. He will win a cash prize and an opportunity to perform on the blockbuster Magic Mike Live stage in Las Vegas.
Behind the scenes, producers on the project include Channing Tatum, Steven Soderbergh, Reid Carolin, Peter Kiernan, Gregory Jacobs, Nick Wechsler, Vincent Marini, Alycia Rossiter, Cassie Lambert Scalettar, Chris Culvenor, Paul Franklin, Wes Dening and David Tibballs alongside co-executive producer Kevin Boyer.
In a statement announcing the series’ development, WB’s president of unscripted television said that the studio is looking forward to getting the ball rolling on the unscripted series.
“Magic Mike is one of Warner Bros.’ most iconic franchises,” said Mike Darnell. “We couldn’t be more excited to be working with Channing, Steven and HBO Max on an all-new vision of this amazing and legendary brand. We’re looking forward to giving fans a front row seat as we search the country for undiscovered talent.”
A nationwide casting search for contestants is currently underway, though there’s currently no word on when we might expect to see The Real Magic Mike debut via HBO Max.
