LAS VEGAS (August 18, 2015) – Poker Central®, the world’s only 24/7 Poker™ TV network, set to launch on October 1st, announced two new, original series that are in production.
Pokerography is an in-depth look into the lives of some of the greatest poker professionals to ever play the game. Each episode will explore the individual behind the legend – and, in their own words. Detailed interviews from poker’s greatest champions reveal their fascinating backstories. Interviews with family, friends, professional rivals, and expert poker-analysts dig deeper into their legacies.
Professional Players to be featured include: Antonio Esfandiari, Phil Hellmuth, Phil Laak, Michael Mizrachi, Chris Moneymaker, Erik Seidel, Vanessa Selbst, Jennifer Harman, Mike Sexton and Jason Somerville.
Pokerograpy, which will premiere in the Q1 2016, began production in April, 2015 and will conclude in February, 2016. It is a production of Ampersand Media, Inc. and MTO Productions, Inc. with Executive Producers David Doyle and Bryan Curb and Supervising Producer Aaron E. Bauer.
Inside Poker, premiering in early 2016, features in-depth, insightful and unfiltered conversations between host Matt Savage and industry icons on hot topics within the poker world, poker tips and advice from the pros and “inside-the-ropes” stories from the top events and card rooms around the U.S.
Savage is Tournament Director at Commerce Casino in Los Angeles, the world’s largest poker room, and at Bay 101 in Savage’s hometown of San Jose. He is a founder of the Tournament Directors Association (TDA), serves as Executive Tour Director of the World Poker Tour (WPT) and recently added WPT tournament sideline reporter to his already busy schedule.
Inside Poker begins production on August 16th in Fort Lauderdale and is produced by Action Television of Denver, Colorado, producers of top tier sports series including Golf Life, Ski TV, US Freeskiing Open, Inside Skiing, Snowrider and Speedcross. Mike Billingsley is Executive Producer. Locations currently planned include: Seminole Hard Rock, Bicycle Club, Commerce Casino, Foxwoods Casino, and various Las Vegas properties to be announced at a later day.
