"The Magicians" (TV show) is a drama series on Syfy that is based upon Lev Grossman's best-selling books.

The series stars Jason Ralph ("A Most Violent Year," "Aquarius") as Quentin Coldwater, a brilliant grad student who enrolls in Brakebills College for Magical Pedagogy, a secret upstate New York university specializing in magic. He and his 20-something friends soon discover that the magical fantasy world they read about as children is all too real — and poses grave danger to humanity.

The cast also includes Stella Maeve ("Chicago P.D."), Hale Appleman ("Teeth"), Arjun Gupta ("Nurse Jackie"), Summer Bishil ("Towelhead," "Lucky 7") and Olivia Taylor Dudley ("The Chernobyl Diaries"). Recurring guest stars include Rick Worthy as Dean Fogg, Anne Dudek as Professor Sunderland, Jade Tailor as Kady and Esme Bianco as Eliza.

Lev Grossman's "Magicians" trilogy is an international sensation, published and widely praised in more than twenty countries. The epic conclusion to the series, "The Magician's Land," opened at #1 in summer 2014 on the New York Times Hardcover Best Seller's list, and was widely acclaimed as one of the best books of the year.

Groundswell Productions' Michael London and Janice Williams ("Milk") executive produce. John McNamara ("Aquarius") and Sera Gamble ("Supernatural"), writers of the pilot, serve as executive producers. Mike Cahill ("I Origins") directed the pilot. Universal Cable Productions serves as the studio.
