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.

Deception hails from Chuck co-creator Chris Fedak and the Blindspot team of creator Martin Gero and magician David Kwong, Warner Bros. Television and Greg Berlanti’s studio-based Berlanti Productions. The pilot was written by Chris Fedak and will be directed by David Nutter.

Nolasco is currently reprising his role of Fernando Sucre in Fox’s Prison Break event series. His other television credits include appearances on George Lopez, Mind of Mencia, CSI: Miami, Gang Related and Telenovela.

Production is set to begin next month in Vancouver on the nine-episode follow-up to the cult 2005 Fox action series.

The original Prison Break, which ran for four seasons, centered on Michael (Miller), who went to prison to try and save his convicted brother Lincoln (Purcell) by hatching an elaborate escape plan.

In the drama’s new chapter, which picks up after Michael’s apparent death, Sara (Callies) has moved on with her life, raising her and Michael’s child with her new husband (Mark Feuerstein). When clues surface suggesting that Michael may be alive, Sara teams with Lincoln to engineer the series’ biggest escape ever.

Deals are pending for the other returning original players, Robert Knepper, Paul Adelstein and Rockmond Dunbar.
