DCD Rights has sold Penn & Teller Fool Us, the CW Network series featuring Las Vegas-based comic magician duo Penn Jillette and the singularly-named Teller, to networks in Asia and the Balkans.

The series, which features aspiring magicians (pictured above) performing their own tricks in order to try and stump Penn & Teller, has been picked up by the Universal Channel, NBCUniversal’s flagship entertainment channel for Asia, and by Prava I Prevodi in the Balkans.

The 9 x 60 minute series is produced by September Films and 1/17 Productions, and UK presenter Jonathan Ross serves as host.
