"Secrets of the Universe" on Discovery Channel is a multi-platform series with a twist that stars Penn & Teller, the Las Vegas show-stopping iconoclasts. They bring their unique vision of the world and astonishing prestidigitation skills to this series that promises to forever change how audiences interact with this remarkable duo's brand of entertainment. Each show includes up to 10 outrageous and mind-blowing stories, but one is a fabrication, an out-and-out lie! It will be up to Discovery's intrepid, savvy, and conversant audience to discover the untruths aimed at them by Penn & Teller, the biggest brains in entertainment, as a new game of "Guess the Lie" begins in each episode.

In each episode, aided by a series of extraordinary visual stunts, Penn & Teller will reveal the most wondered "Secrets of the Universe." Unbelievable stories like:

• How were five people shot by their dogs since 1990?

• Can you lift a 5,000 pound car with a human hair?

• How did ancient aboriginal Australians create a cure for snoring?

• Can you land a plane if the rudders go out?

• What music causes alligators to have sex (clue #1: it's not Barry White!)?

• What happens to Teller when he's lowered into a tank of piranhas?

And one of them won't be true, as Discovery's audience across multiple platforms decode which is the cock-and-bull story, and interact with the program to stop these wild anti-magicians in their tracks. Only at the end of each show will Penn & Teller's lies be exposed.

"Secrets of the Universe" is produced by Discovery Studios.
