Upfronts 2015: First Look at NBC’s The Player (video)
SHOW: The Player, drama
WHO: Wesley Snipes, Philip Winchester (Strike Back), Charity Wakefield (Mockingbird Lane), Isiah Adams (recurring)
WHAT: In the high stakes world of Las Vegas, a former sniper turned security expert is drawn into a mysterious conspiracy that forces him to complete a series of heroic challenges in order to save innocent lives.
WHEN: Thursdays at 10 PM EST
BOTTOM LINE: I quit paying attention – twice – during the trailer. I’m sure there is an audience for this show: Wesley Snipes + action + it’s from the team behind The Blacklist + Thursday at 10PM time slot. I’ll be watching How To Get Away With Murder and won’t lose a bit of sleep over it.
