Bookie on Binge – First look trailer and key art for the new comedy series Bookie, from Emmy®-nominated creator Chuck Lorre (The Big Bang Theory) and starring Sebastian Maniscalco (Green Book), has been released today ahead of the double-episode premiere 30 November on BINGE.
The eight-episode series will debut two episodes subsequent Thursdays leading up to the season finale on 21 December.
The darkly funny comedy follows veteran Los Angeles bookie Danny (Maniscalco) as the potential legalisation of sports gambling in California threatens to upend his business for good. Alongside best friend and former NFL player Ray (Omar J. Dorsey), side-hustling sister Lorraine (Vanessa Ferlito), and reluctantly reformed drug dealer Hector (Jorge Garcia), Danny must contend with his increasingly unstable clients as he tries to settle their debts – all while making plenty of risky bets of his own. Full of relatable mishaps, Bookie chronicles one man’s journey to adapt to an ever-changing world as he attempts to charm and con his way to the top.
The series stars Maniscalco, Dorsey, Ferlito, Garcia, Andrea Anders and Maxim Swinton.
Produced by Warner Bros. Television, BOOKIE is created, written and produced by Chuck Lorre & Nick Bakay; executive produced by Sebastian Maniscalco, Judi Marmel and Andy Tennant, who directed multiple episodes.
Bookie on Binge – premieres on Thursday 30 November on BINGE and at 830pm on FOX8 and available On Demand.
