PENN & TELLER: OFF THE DEEP END
Rogue magicians and eight-time nominees and two-time Emmy Award winners Penn & Teller ("Penn & Teller Go Public," "Penn & Teller's Bulls***t") for the first time ever make a full-sized submarine disappear underwater in the Caribbean - as one of their amazing feats in this new two-hour special. The duo's trademark "sardonic" commentary accompanies each magic trick, and as they do in their Las Vegas stage act, Penn & Teller also reveal for the audience members who want to know: how they pull off their illusions. Multi-platinum-album recording star Aaron Carter ("Aaron's Party," "Saturday Night") makes a guest-starring appearance in one of the illusions. Videotaped offshore of Grand Cayman and the Atlantis, Paradise Island resort in the Bahamas, the special features classically inspired and traditionally staged magic performed -- a first -- on the ocean floor. In addition to the disappearing submarine illusion, highlights in the special include acts with hungry sharks, "psychic" dolphins, and the duo actually walking on water in a newly divised super illusion.
