Will the ABC new show Deception Bring Back Castle Fans?

As soon as I saw the trailer for the ABC new show Deception I thought of Castle. If you’ve ever watched that show it’s kind of impossible not to. This is not because Deception is "copying" Castle. I mean, let’s not get crazy about the Castle‘s "originality." Deception is cut from the same procedural dramedy boilerplate that Castle, The Mentalist, Chuck, Bones, and Moonlighting stem from. That would be the 1982 through 1987 NBC show Remington Steele, which itself borrows from 1940’s screwball comedies. These successful shows had actors and writers who could make trope characters stand out as unique individuals. That’s what gave them their unique flare. Still, each show is based on the idea of a mismatched crime-solving pairing On Castle Richard Castle (Nathan Fillion), a famous and outlandish playboy mystery writer was paired with Detective Kate Beckett (Stana Katic), a one-and-done, no-nonsense detective. Deception has a famous and outlandish master magician named Cameron Black/Jonathan Black (Jack Cutmore-Scott ). He’s paired Kay Daniels (Ilfenesh Hadera), a no-nonsense FBI agent who doesn’t like magic. (I’d say the odds are she’s really a fan….) READ MORE...
