Deception #1

A new crime drama will premiere on ABC this March.

“Deception” stars Jack Cutmore-Scott as Cameron Black, a superstar magician whose career falls flat. Black turns to the FBI to solve crime using his skills of deception, influence and illusion. His FBI counterpart is Kay Daniels, played by Ilfenesh Hadera.

If the series sounds a bit like the 2013 blockbuster film “Now You See Me”, it may be because the film’s illusionist, David Kwong, will co-produce the ABC show.

A supporting character in the show is Jordan Kwon, played by Justin Chon who I am very excited to see on network television. Chon received recognition for his independent film, Gook (2017). I have also met him at a local ice cream shop in our hometown of Irvine, California, where we attended the same high school!

As for “Deception”, Chris Fedak (Chuck) will act as writer and executive producer, with other EP’s Greg Berlanti, Martin Gero and Sarah Schechter.

The new show’s Twitter account is young, created in May of 2017. It is not very active yet, with only 26 tweets–most being retweets of potential fans and current magicians, excited for the premiere.

“Deception” will premiere on Sunday, March 11 at 10/9c on ABC.
