'The King of the High Wire' schedules Chicago stunt

By Julianne Cassidy. CREATED Apr 3, 2014

Despite almost deadly wind-conditions during his 2013 Grand Canyon walk, "The King of the High Wire" is heading for The Windy City to do it all again.

Discovery has confirmed that Nik Wallenda will attempt to cross the Chicago skyline mid-air this fall. Like his Grand Canyon crossing, called "Skywire Live," he will be untethered.

Eileen O’Neill, Group President of Discovery Networks, said, “I am excited about Discovery’s Upfront programming slate with even bigger live events, including our follow up to 'Skywire Live,'” reports Entertainment Weekly.

Watch above as 10 million viewers tuned in to see Wallenda's nail-biting Grand Canyon event.
