Magic Mike isn't just a movie masterpiece. With a stunning sequel and a Vegas live show, the 2012 film is a certified franchise. Next stop? A reality competition show full of abs, sweat, and questionable dance routines.
The unscripted reality competition show, called The Real Magic Mike, is set to come to HBO Max in late 2021. The series will feature 10 men who have "lost their magic" competing for a cash prize and a chance to perform at the Magic Mike Live stage show in Las Vegas.
“[The contestants] will bare their souls and more as they evolve their bodies, learn to perform spectacular routines, and develop a new level of self-confidence,” a description of the show via HBO Max reads. “As they strip off their clothes, they will rid themselves of emotional baggage and regain their mojo but only one will be the Real Magic Mike.”
Magic Mike star Channing Tatum and director Steven Soderbergh are executive producers of the series. And there are big expectations for this sexy spin-off.
"From box office hits to sold-out live shows, Magic Mike has proven to be a pop culture juggernaut that continues to delight people across the globe," HBO Max head of original content Sarah Aubrey told The Hollywood Reporter. “We’re excited to work with Channing, Steven and the team behind Magic Mike Live to continue this successful franchise that celebrates self-confidence and sexiness both inside and out."
Producers are currently looking for contestants nationwide, according to CNN.
