Show-stopping iconoclasts Penn & Teller bring their unique vision of the world to Discovery Channel in PENN & TELLER TELL A LIE, a new interactive series with a twist. In each episode, Penn & Teller make up to seven outrageous claims, such as: “A butter knife can stop a speeding bullet,” or “You can melt steel with bacon.”
But things are not always what they seem — while most of the wildly unbelievable stories are absolutely, positively true – one of them is a totally believable big fat lie! It will be up to Discovery’s savvy viewers to spot the fake by noticing buried clues that give it away.
During the show, viewers will be prompted to launch the Guess the Lie experience, available on iPad, iPhone and online at Discovery.com. Guess the Lie will allow viewers to select in real time whether each of the stories is “True” or a “Lie” – and they can change their vote as many times as they like until the final reveal. The home audience’s final results will be revealed at the end of each episode (with different results for ET and PT airings). Will America get it right?
