Amaury Nolasco (Prison Break) and Lenora Crichlow (Being Human) are set as series regulars opposite Jack Cutmore-Scott in ABC pilot Deception, an FBI crime drama procedural from Chuck co-creator Chris Fedak and the Blindspot team of creator Martin Gero, magician David Kwong, Warner Bros. TV and Greg Berlanti’s studio-based Berlanti Prods.
In Deception, when his career is ruined by scandal, superstar magician Cameron Black (Cutmore-Scott) has only one place to turn to practice his art of deception, illusion, and influence — the FBI. He’ll become the world’s first consulting illusionist, helping the government solve crimes that defy explanation, and trap criminals and spies by using deception. Nolasco will play Mike Alvarez, a classic FBI agent and, secretly, a huge fan of magic. Crichlow is Dina Clark, Cameron Black’s producer/makeup genius.
