When asked to describe what the show would be about, Todd Anderson said: “One week you might see a celebrity-filled poker game from a Hollywood mansion and the next week could feature a high stakes cash game between poker heavyweights like Phil Hellmuth and Daniel Negreanu. What you’ll always be able to count on is interesting story lines and variety. We’ll only be limited by our imagination.”
