Derren Brown will do a stunt on his new live TV show that will apparently
immobilise TV viewers.
The second show is a piece of media that will be played to the viewing nation and will have the effect of rendering them immobile. Not all of them, but it will stick a lot of people to their seat.
It's safe and it won't work on everybody, but it's taking what I do one-on-one with people onstage and turning it into a piece of technology that can then be broadcast. That has never been done before.
If viewers' TVs happened to break, or I died suddenly, after a few minutes people would be able to stand up again.
Derren Brown: The Event Live airs Wednesday, September 9 on Channel 4.
Derren Brown: How to Control the National airs on Friday, September 18, on Channel 4 (this is the episode where he will do the stunt).
