A Six-Episode Limited Series (Optioned by Hearst Media Group)
Enslaved. Crucified. Burned at the stake. Female purveyors of the Magical Arts have never had it easy. They still don't.
From the Oracles of Delphi to today's modern Mistresses of Magic, their journey is one of defiance and deceit... Discrimination and determination... Treachery and triumph. And often still is.
For 5,000 years female purveyors of the Magical arts have utilized their secretive skills to bring down empires, amass fortunes, and yes, entertain.
- The Oracles of Delphi use ventriloquism to topple kingdoms.
- Princess Carcass defeats Charlemagne with a pig illusion.
- The first African America female magician braves lynching.
Told in six provocative, eye-opening, and often heart-wrenching stories of both historical and modern Ladies of Legerdemain, "Women Who Deceive" brings to life their brilliance in battle, their struggles for equality, for glory, and for often merely surviving.
Some do. Many do not.
