Apple TV+ today shared a new trailer for the upcoming podcast “Wild Things: Siegfried & Roy” ahead of its debut on January 12, 2022. The podcast, narrated by award-winning journalist and filmmaker Steven Leckart, offers an in-depth look into “two of the most famous, enigmatic and controversial magicians in history.”

Wild Things: Siegfried & Roy

New podcast “Wild Things: Siegfried & Roy,” coming to Apple TV+ on January 12

Apple made the announcement for the 8-part podcast series via a press release, revealing the first two episodes will debut on January 12 with a new episode being released on a weekly basis.

Over the course of nearly half a century, Siegfried & Roy performed 30,000 shows for millions of people. Although the German-born illusionists and pop culture icons were mega-famous, much about their private lives, eccentric public personae and tragic final show remained shrouded in mystery … until now.

Emmy Award-winning filmmaker and investigative journalist Steven Leckart goes behind the velvet curtain to reveal shocking moments, surprising details and hidden truths about two men who were lionized by millions of fans, lampooned by the media, criticized by animal welfare advocates, and endlessly scrutinized by the public.

There are several podcasts under the Apple TV+ umbrella but most are companions to a TV series of the same name. “Wild Things: Siegfried & Roy” will be the second stand-alone feature on the platform. Although the podcast is associated with Apple’s paid streaming service, it will be accessible to all users – no Apple TV+ subscription required.
