Greg Berlanti’s ‘DECEPTION’ TV Series Gets Picked Up at ABC

May 13, 2017


ABC has announced that they have picked up their new drama pilot DECEPTION, from Chris Fedak and Greg Berlanti.

This show marks the second new series order for Berlanti TV this season, along with Black Lightning, which is set up at The CW.

Written by Chuck alum Chris Fedak, this is one of the highest-end drama pilots this season, which has been well received. In it, when his career is ruined by scandal, superstar magician Cameron Black (Jack Cutmore-Scott) 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.

Cutmore-Scott is joined alongside Ilfenesh Hadera as Kay Daniels, Lenora Crichlow as Dina Clark, Amaury Nolasco as Mike Alvarez, Justin Chon as Jordan Kwon, Laila Robins as Special Agent Deakins, and Vinnie Jones as Gunter Gustafsen.

Fedak also executive produces alongside Berlanti and Sarah Schechter of Berlanti TV as well as Martin Hero. Illusionist David Kwong will co-produce.

Here’s an exclusive teaser:
