NEWS BRIEFS: Roy Promotes New Series

RETURNED: Nearly half a year after the mauling that nearly took his life, illusionist Roy Horn plans to return to work with longtime entertainment partner Siegfried Fischbacher, the Associated Press reports. Siegfried and Roy will help promote “Father of the Pride,” a new animated series for NBC about a family of white lions that work in the pair’s show. “Siegfried & Roy,” which opened in 1990, was one of Las Vegas’s most successful shows until one of the white tigers bit Horn during a performance last year. He has been recovering since.
