For his next trick, Johnny Depp will play famed magician Harry Houdini.

After earlier this week renewing its first original scripted series 'Vikings' for a second season, coupled with 'The Bible's' major success, History has conjured up its next big miniseries to market.

Will it prove as big a success as 'The Bible' or 'Hatfields & McCoys'? Preview History's next magic trick inside!
