January 10, 2018

ABC is getting in on the hot new trend of TV shows about crime-solving magicians. The network is debuting a program called Deception that is slated to premiere on Sunday, March 11. Here’s the official description of the show, which was announced at the Television Critics Association press tour:

When his career is ruined by scandal, superstar magician Cameron Black has only one place to turn to practice his art of deception, influence and illusion — the FBI. Using every trick in the book and inventing new ones, he will help the government catch the world’s most elusive criminals while staging the biggest illusions of his career.

Color me intrigued. The show stars Jack Cutmore-Scott, Ilfenesh Hadera, Lenora Crichlow, Amaury Nolasco, Justin Chon, Laila Robins, and Vinnie Jones. Chris Fedar of Chuck is the writer/executive producer.
