THE CW ADDS TO ITS REALITY SLATE WITH TWO SERIES: "BARBER BATTLE," HOSTED BY CEDRIC THE ENTERTAINER, AND "PENN & TELLER: FOOL US"

January 15, 2014 (Pasadena, CA) - Two reality series - BARBER BATTLE, an all-new, half-hour reality competition series hosted by actor and comedian Cedric the Entertainer, and PENN & TELLER: FOOL US, a one-hour competition series celebrating magic and featuring the legendary duo Penn & Teller - will premiere later this year on The CW.

BARBER BATTLE will visit different barbershops across the country in each of the 10 episodes. The most talented barbers from the Bronx to the 'burbs will compete with their clippers to showcase their artistic designs and be crowned the creator of the best "crowns" in town. Going beyond mere hairstyles, these amazing stylists use their scissors and clippers to create astonishing works of art ranging from portraits to landmarks to ballparks - all on someone's head. Episodes will blend craft with comedy and will feature a winner each week. Judges, locations and contestants will be announced at a later date.

BARBER BATTLE is hosted by actor and comedian Cedric the Entertainer ("Who Wants to Be A Millionaire," "The Soul Man," "The Original Kings of Comedy"), who also serves as executive producer, along with Mark Efman ("Charlemagne & Friends," "A&E Biographies").

On each of the nine episodes of PENN & TELLER: FOOL US, aspiring magicians are invited to perform their best trick to try and fool the world-famous team of Penn & Teller. Anyone who succeeds wins the right to perform with Penn & Teller in their celebrated show at the Rio Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. The live studio audience and the TV audience watch along with Penn & Teller as they try to figure out the secrets. Penn and Teller see the trick only once and have to immediately try to work it out. The audience knows there are no camera tricks, secret edits or helpful camera cuts. This is all real magic. British television and radio personality Jonathan Ross ("Friday Night with Jonathan Ross") serves as host.

PENN & TELLER: FOOL US is created and produced by 117 PRODUCTIONS and September Films (part of DCD Media) for ITV, with executive producers Peter Adam Golden and Andrew Golder, David Green and Peter Davey.
