by | Published: Sunday, June 22nd, 2014

In a week full of poker deals, another one has just been announced. Poker Night in America announced an agreement with CBS Sports Network on Thursday, June 19, that will see the new and exciting poker television show broadcast to a national audience. Beginning on June 29, the show is scheduled to run for 26 consecutive weeks at 10 PM ET (7 PM PT) every Sunday night.

“We’re making poker fun again — that’s our real goal,” said Todd Anderson, the creator of the show and president, in a press release. “We think poker players and fans have been looking for something new and fresh for a long time. We believe Poker Night in America will soon become must-see television for all serious players and fans. Our tag-ling says it all, ‘bringing personality back to poker.’”

Poker Night in America has held four events so far. The first was at the Turning Stone in Verona, NY, which was followed by the second event at Peppermill Reno in Reno, NV. The third event was held at the Rivers Casino Pittsburgh in Pittsburgh, PA at the end of 2014 while the fourth and so far latest event was held at Maryland Live! Casino in Hanover, MD earlier this year. Poker Night in America will be returning to this last venue at the end of July.

Anderson, with his company Rush Street Productions, created the idea for Poker Night in America in mid-2013 as a one-of-a-kind poker experience emphasizing and bringing out the fun, variety, entertainment, and interesting aspects of poker.

Poker Night in America set to Take TV screens by Storm

by | Published: Tuesday, July 30th, 2013

Headed for Television screens all over the United States, ‘Poker Night in America’, or PNIA, is an initiative of Rush Street Productions and will highlight the variety, entertainment and fun involved with Poker.

Headed by former head of Heartland Poker Tour, Todd Anderson, the show is aiming to be the first point of contact at the biggest shows all over the country.

“We’re looking to film the biggest and best poker events at premier venues” Anderson was quoted as saying recently.

“We’re going to bring a fresh approach to how poker is shown on TV, making the show relevant to the average viewer.

“We think the world is ready to watch poker in a whole new way” Anderson said.

Like many of the other television based Poker promotions that are currently succeeding in the market, PNIA will focus on ‘made for’ events featuring celebrities and professional poker players alike, however will also incorporate interactive, at-home play components involving prizes and even the chance of making an appearance on the show.

Anderson further revealed the inspiration for the initiative in a post recently left on pokernight.com

“Poker Night in America will debut on American television sometime in early 2014″.

“My goal is to make it very different from any other poker show. Ironically, to do so this new show will focus less on poker and more on the interesting story lines and characters in the world of poker and gambling.

“I’ve been involved in TV and Poker for the past eight years and if there’s one thing I’m sure of, it’s that this business is chalk full of fascinating people and stories” Anderson said.

While the show itself isn’t due for at least six months, the maiden PNIA television event will occur on August 10 at Turning Stone Casino in Verona, New York at the Empire State Poker Classic.
