Lev Grossman’s The Magicians!
Based upon Lev Grossman’s best-selling books, The Magicians stars Jason Ralph as Quentin Coldwater, a gifted grad student chosen to attend Brakebills University in upstate New York. He and his friends soon discover that the magical fantasy world they read about as children is all too real – and poses grave danger to humanity. The two-episode premiere airs January 25 at 9pm ET/PT on Showcase.
Lev Grossman’s The Magicians trilogy is an international sensation, published and widely praised in more than twenty countries. The epic conclusion to the series, The Magician’s Land, opened at #1 last summer on the New York Times Hardcover Best Seller’s list, and was widely acclaimed as one of the best books of the year. Additionally, The Magicians was one of the recipients of the 2010 Alex Awards. The Alex Awards are given to ten books written for adults that have special appeal to young adults, ages 12 through 18.
Like everyone else, precocious high school senior Quentin Coldwater assumes that magic isn't real, until he finds himself admitted to a very secretive and exclusive college of magic in upstate New York. There he indulges in joys of college-friendship, love, sex, and booze- and receives a rigorous education in modern sorcery. But magic doesn't bring the happiness and adventure Quentin thought it would. After graduation, he and his friends stumble upon a secret that sets them on a remarkable journey that may just fulfill Quentin's yearning. But their journey turns out to be darker and more dangerous than they'd imagined. Psychologically piercing and dazzlingly inventive, The Magicians, the prequel to the New York Times bestselling book The Magician King and the #1 bestseller The Magician's Land, is an enthralling coming-of-age tale about magic practiced in the real world-where good and evil aren't black and white, and power comes at a terrible price.
