Apple TV+ has shared a new trailer for the upcoming podcast Wild Things: Siegfried & Roy ahead of its debut on January 12, 2022. The podcast will focus on the famous magicians and that infamous tiger attack.

Apple made the announcement via a press release (opens in new tab), saying that the first two episodes of the new podcast will debut on January 12 with a new episode being released every week after that. The show will run for eight episodes in total.

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.

Written and narrated by journalist and Emmy Award-winning filmmaker Steven Leckart, Wild Things: Siegfried & Roy is one of a growing number of Apple Original podcasts that can be streamed in the Apple Podcasts app. No Apple TV+ subscription is required, despite the awkward branding.
