I have no idea, but I have read in the past that, sometimes at least, the tarot decks on TV are designed for the show by the production team. The cards in the Red Violin, for example, I'm pretty sure don't exist.

The name of the show, season and episode number would help to do a more thorough research...

Like Paige's deck from Charmed... We only see 3 cards of that deck but daaamn! It was beautiful to look at:

Just look at that 3oS:

EDIT:
So, I reverse-searched the screen capture you posted and saw that it was from Once Upon a Time. So far it seems that it was made for the show. Notice that that the numbers of the Minor Arcana are not uniform: the 3oP is a pip and the 3oS is the Rider-Waite version. I don't know of any deck that mixes the two forms of pip illustration. Also, the back was cut imperfectly, in some cards the black borders is thinner and they have pointy corners, instead of the rounded ones you see in mass-produced decks. Notice too that the Sun card is completely out of proportion from the other cards: it is much taller and a bit less wide.
