New Poker TV Show Coming to America
As online gambling legislation spreads across the U.S. a new poker television show is being created, Poker Night in America. Behind the show is Todd Anderson, the co-founder of Heartland Poker Tour, and it promises to offer a unique look at televised poker action.
Anderson said, “We are looking to film the biggest and the best poker events at premier venues. We’re going to bring a fresh approach to how poker is shown on TV, making the show relevant to the average viewer. We think the world is ready to watch poker in a whole new way.”
The show will also be airing events that feature professional poker players and celebrities and will also allow interaction with players at home with prizes and TV appearances to be won.
Anderson explained that, “One week you might see a celebrity-filled poker game from a Hollywood mansion and the next week could feature a high stakes cash game between poker heavyweights like Phil Hellmuth and Daniel Negreanu. What you’ll always be able to count on is interesting story lines and variety. We’ll only be limited by our imagination.”
The first episodes of the show will be broadcast in early 2014.
