wizard wars syfy penn teller premiere magic Penn and Teller bring magic to Syfy in 'Wizard Wars' competitionSyfy’s the latest network to add a magic show to its lineup, with the Aug. 19 premiere of “Wizard Wars,” a competition hosted by the ubiquitous Penn and Teller.

The duo challenges magicians to come up with tricks using “things you’d never expect,” says judge Penn Jillette in a promo for the show. So, essentially, it’s the unconventional materials challenge from “Project Runway” but in magic form?

Check out a commercial for the series below, and tune in on Tuesday nights at 10 p.m. ET/PT on Syfy.
