The Magician
March 17, 1973 - April 15, 1974


Bill Bixby just after a successful run on the Courtship Of Eddie's Father appeared in this Adventure/Drama/Sci-Fi series called The Magician.

Bixby starred as Tony Blake a master stage magician who used his magic skills to help others.

Tony Blake got himself mixed up in all sorts of situations such as the hijacking of a ship, casino robberies, & a stolen Chinese heirloom.

The Magician first aired in March of 1973 with a 90 minute Pilot but didn't return until the fall schedule.

Despite the show being well written & produced and Bill Bixby doing a fine job along with many top guest stars, the competition against Hawaii Five O was too great and the show cancelled after just one season.
