Thanks for visiting the official website of The Magician, the untold story of Marlin Briscoe — professional football’s first black starting quarterback. Through his rise from the racially-divided housing projects of south Omaha to the top of the world as a member of the 1972 undefeated Miami Dolphins, The Magician takes you through all of Marlin’s highs, as well as his meteoric fall from glory at the hands of addiction. We hope you’ll follow our progress and check back often, as we try to do Marlin’s story justice. Please use this blog to share your personal stories of discrimination and addiction and how you, like Marlin, were able to persevere. We welcome you to also share your thoughts and insights on independent film production. Or just say, “Hi.” Again, thanks for stopping by.
