Set in Las Vegas, the drama follows a huge game in which world events are predicted, gambled upon and influenced by a shadowy elite. The cast includes Philip Winchester, Charity Wakefield, Damon Gupton, and Wesley Snipes. The show ran for only nine episodes before NBC cancelled it in 2015.
The two-disc DVD set is available on Amazon for $35.99 and includes all nine episodes from season one.
Here’s a description:
From the executive producers of The Blacklist comes the action-packed Las Vegas-set thriller The Player. The series co-stars Wesley Snipes as the pit boss and Charity Wakefield as the dealer for a high-stakes game, where an organization of wealthy individuals gamble on the ability of former military operative turned security expert Philip Winchester (“Strike Back,” “Fringe”) to stop some of the biggest crimes imaginable from playing out. Can he take them down from the inside and get revenge for the death of his wife, or is it true what they say: The house always wins.”
