About Poker Night in America

“Poker Night in America” is an edgy new television series and window into behind-the-scenes reality that has never been attempted before.  Part real-life poker coverage, part unscripted reality television, Poker Night in America is the first program ever to show what really goes on away from the tables and behind the cameras.  Poker players and cast members are followed around airports, casinos, golf courses, bars, restaurants, or wherever a compelling story takes place.
