The New York Observer provides further info on a proposed sitcom to be Exec Produced by Criss Angel. "The Angel project is based on an original idea that the 'Mindfreak' magician conceived along with producers Dave Baram, Jason Verona and Adam Shulman. Moynihan has joined in to write the project, which was inspired by Angel's experience as an up-and-coming magician. All four are aboard to exec produce the half-hour, which was pitched as a workplace comedy set in the world of magic."  Reed Thompson's review of Believe from the LA Times was quoted in the article as well. "If Criss Angel were blindfolded, straitjacketed, run over by a steamroller, locked in a steel box and dumped from a helicopter into the Pacific Ocean, he still might be easier to salvage from disaster than 'Criss Angel: Believe,' the gloomy, gothic muddle of a show that officially lurched into being on Halloween night like some patched-together Frankenstein's monster."
