Presented by Laurence Fishburne, The Houdini Diaries charts the 

extraordinary life of the most iconic showman of all time. 

By opening Houdini's legendary unseen dairies to the world for the first time, the film is able to produce stunning new insights into Ehric Weiss, the man behind the Houdini persona. What emerges is a complex and dark portrait of a man willing to push himself closer and closer to death in order to escape the demons of his past.

Simon exec produced, showran and directed.
