VH1 planning celebrity magician series, search for P Diddy’s assistant

VH1 has announced two new celebrity-themed reality series. P Diddy will search for an assistant on one, while the other will feature celebrities doing magic.

The as-yet-unnamed P Diddy series “will track 20 finalists as they compete to land the job of a lifetime: personal assistant to Sean “P Diddy” Combs,” according to a Craigslist posting. The only real requirement is that contestants be at least 21, but the ad also says they “Must have a ‘whatever it takes’ attitude” and “need a big personality to stand out amongst the other candidates.”

The series will debut this summer, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Meanwhile, Celebracadabra will be a series “in which seven celebrities vie for the title of ‘Best Celebrity Magician,’ attempting to learn and perform professional-caliber magic tricks,” the paper says. No word on the stars or a debut date.
