TORONTO, Nov. 27, 2012 /CNW/ - Before the Mayan calendar flips to Doomsday, 
SPACE asks viewers "what if the world ended tomorrow?" From BAFTA 
Award-winning psychological illusionist Derren Brown, DERREN BROWN: APOCALYPSE 
uses a compelling blend of suggestion, psychological tricks, and experiments 
to construct an elaborate and shocking stunt to convince one person that the 
planet has been devastated by a catastrophic meteor strike. The subject at the 
centre of the experiment is left to believe that he is one of a mere handful 
of survivors. The gripping two-part special airs back-to-back on Wednesday, 
Dec. 12 at 9 p.m. ET exclusively on SPACE. 
The hapless 'survivor' at the centre of DERREN BROWN: APOCALYPSE is someone 
who, admittedly, takes life for granted. After waking up disoriented in a 
hospital bed, he makes his way outside only to discover the aftermath of the 
meteor strike. Buildings are in ruins, the streets are in disarray, and there 
are infected zombies everywhere. His sense of responsibility, leadership, 
compassion, and courage are tested every step of the way as he tries to 
survive the devastation - and the zombies.

About Derren Brown
Derren Brown is a performer who combines magic, suggestion, psychology, 
misdirection, and showmanship in order to seemingly predict and control human 
behaviour, and perform mind-bending feats of mentalism. While his performances 
create the illusion that he has some kind of paranormal powers, Brown is a 
prominent sceptic and a pronounced atheist. 
For the past 10 years, Brown has created TV and stage performances that have 
stunned audiences, debunked the paranormal, and encouraged many to improve and 
enhance their own mental abilities. His first show appeared in 2000, Derren 
Brown: Mind Control, and followed with a series of specials. His television 
work also includes the hugely popular THE Events, Hero at 30,000 Feet, and the 
more recent Experiments, in which Brown sets out to explore the darker side of 
what makes us tick as human beings. 
In addition to his award-winning performances on stage and television, Brown 
is also an accomplished artist, exhibiting at the prestigious Rebecca Hossack 
Gallery in central London, as well as being published in a collected volume of 
works. Brown is also keen writer, penning four books to date which include 
Absolute Magic, Pure Effect, Tricks of the Mind, and Confessions of a Conjurer.
