TV producer pleads guilty to sports betting accusations

Bryan Zuriff, the famous Hollywood producer and current producer to Liev Schreiber’s new drama ‘Ray Donovan’, could face up to five years in prison for pleading guilty to running a high-stakes gambling operation which has been linked to Russian mobsters.

The 44 year old has confessed before court to his participation in illegal sports gambling in Los Angeles and New York during a court hearing last week, when he also confessed to becoming a financial instrument to these mobsters.

Zuriff is only on of 34 others indicted in April for their involvement with organized crime enterprises. These were run by American-Russian mobsters who are accused to having laundered as much as $100 million, product of sports betting and celebrity poker games.
