NBC execs have been slowly rebuilding their schedule and they’ve had a hard time finding new successful series. Will The Player be a ratings success or, will it be cancelled like so many others? Will it be renewed for a second season? Stay tuned.
Set in Las Vegas, The Player follows a huge game in which world events are predicted, gambled upon and influenced by a shadowy elite. Controlling the game is the “The Pitt Boss,” a mysterious Mr. Johnson (Wesley Snipes). “The Dealer” is Cassandra (Charity Wakefield) and she recruits rogue FBI agent Alex Kane (Philip Winchester) as “The Player”. Alex is driven by the need to find out who killed his wife. Damon Gupton also stars.
