Deception tells the story of superstar magician Cameron Black (played by Jack Cutmore-Scott) who only has one place to turn when his career is ruined by scandal… the FBI. Using every trick in the book and inventing new ones, Black helps the government catch the world’s most elusive criminals while staging the biggest illusions of his career.
At CTV’s 2017 upfront presentation, I caught up with Deception‘s Jack Cutmore-Scott. We chatted about the new show and its premise. I asked the actor why people seem to be fascinated by the lives magicians lead when they aren’t performing and if he feels like the FBI could actually use help from illusionists.
