NBC is looking to add some kick to its Thursday night lineup this fall with a sexy new crime drama starring acclaimed television and action film star, Wesley Snipes!  The show is called “The Player” and it will go toe-to-toe with ABC’s mega hit series, “How To Get Away with Murder” starring Oscar nominated actress, Viola Davis.
According to the show’s webpage, “The Player”co-stars 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 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. The series also stars Damon Gupton as Detective Cal Brown
