DCD Rights inks Format deal with STB Ukraine for Penn & Teller: Fool Us

5 October 2011

International distributor DCD Rights has sold format rights of 9×60′ original magic entertainment show Penn & Teller: Fool Us to STB Ukraine. Starring the legendary magic double act Penn & Teller, each episode sees aspiring magicians perform their most mystifying trick to try and fool the iconic duo, it was announced at MIPCOM 2011.

STB Ukraine will make the show for broadcast in 2012.

Penn & Teller have no prior knowledge of either the performers or the planned trick. They are sitting in the audience just like everyone else, watching every move the guest magicians make. And, if any illusionist comes on and fools the professionals they win a five star trip to Las Vegas to perform as the opening act in Penn & Teller’s world famous show at the Rio Hotel & Casino.

The programme is produced by DCD-owned September Films and 1/17 Productions and first aired on Saturday night primetime ITV1 earlier this year, presented by Jonathan Ross.
