Showtime released the first look of its four-part docuseries that explores life after the legalization of sports gambling. According to the trailer, it’s filled with its fair share of competitiveness, adversity and most importantly, Benjamins.
“Are you addicted to gambling?” the interviewer asks.
Sports betting consultant Dave “Vegas Dave” Oancea promptly responds, “No. I’m addicted to making money.”
The character-driven narrative chronicles the lives of sports betters, bookies and oddsmakers throughout the 2018 NFL season, according to Showtime. The series will showcase how last May’s Supreme Court ruling affected sports and gambling communities everywhere as billions of dollars were wagered in the first year of its legalization.
The series will profile Oancea, professional gambler Bill “Krack” Krackomberger, and professional handicapper Kelly Stewart aka “Kelly In Vegas.” There will also be appearances from Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, legendary bookmaker Jimmy Vaccaro, sports broadcasting icon Brent Musburger and comedian Cousin Sal.
Action is a Boardwalk Pictures production, in association with Keep On Running Pictures. It’s executive produced by Luke Korem, Andrew Fried, Dane Lillegard, David Check and Jordan Wynn.
It premieres Sunday, March 24 on Showtime.
