"Wizard Wars" (TV show) is a reality competition series on Syfy that takes viewers behind the scenes of magic by challenging a new team of magicians each week to create the most jaw-dropping illusions using an array of random objects and transforming them into eye-popping miracles.

Innovation takes center stage as the magicians transform objects such as dog treats, leaf blowers, a pirate's costume and garden gnomes into engaging magic performances before a live audience. Each episode begins with two teams of magicians going head-to-head with a limited amount of time to create an original routine. The winning team will then enter "The Wizard War" and compete against the expert "home team" of world-renowned "Wizards" to battle it out for bragging rights and a $10,000 prize.

Two-time World Championship of Magic winner Gregory Wilson, Wynn Resort resident magician Shimshi, YouTube sensation and contemporary street illusionist Justin Flom, and internationally renowned mentalist Angela Funovits will compete as the home team. These masterful performers and magic creators cover every discipline in magic from sleight of hand to large-scale stage illusion.

The judging panel includes legendary Penn & Teller, the 2012 winner of BBC's "The Magicians," Jason Latimer, and popular web host Christen Gerhart.

With each episode the magicians will be challenged to continue to push magic to new and greater heights, and the world will be one step closer to discovering the next great contemporary magician. The series is hosted by Ellen Fox.

Syfy's "Wizard Wars" is produced by A. Smith & Co. ("Hell's Kitchen," "Joe Rogan Questions Everything," "America Ninja Warrior"). Executive producers are Arthur Smith, Kent Weed, Frank Sinton, Tim Eagan, Penn Jillette and Teller.
