NBC picks up Geller show


Uri Geller’s hit Israeli television show for aspiring psychics is coming to American screens.

NBC television announced this week that it is developing its own version of “The Successor,” an Israeli reality show in which the spoon-bending Geller picked a winner out of 10 contestants sporting their own “mentalist” skills.

The NBC show, whose working title is “Phenomenon,” is due to be aired next year and will star Geller alongside U.S. magician Criss Angel.
