The Magician

West Omaha Films and Falconer Pictures proudly presents The Magician. Marlin Briscoe broke almost every rookie quarterback record in Denver Broncos history, but was released without explanation. Then Marlin switched to wide receiver, earning All-Pro honors and two Super Bowl rings.

But despite his lifetime of success on the football field, Marlin the Magician's toughest opposition was against drugs and himself — a struggle that left him on the streets of L.A. and nearly took his life.

From his early years in Omaha, Nebraska, to racial confrontations and near-death personal struggles, The Magician is the true story of Marlin Briscoe, pro football’s first black starting quarterback.
