Poker Central, the ultimate destination for fans of poker tournaments, cash games and lifestyle away from the tables, partnered with New York entertainment company Believe Entertainment Group to produce “Super High Roller Club,” a new six-episode lifestyle series premiering 26 February on PokerGO, Poker Central’s direct-to-consumer OTT subscription service.
Ali Nejad, host of the “Super High Roller Club,” will follow the affluent lifestyles of high-stakes poker regulars Daniel Negreanu, Phil Hellmuth, Antonio Esfandiari, Nick Schulman, Farah Galfond and Brandon Adams as they engage in their hobbies and explore their passions away from the tables.
“This series will give viewers a glimpse inside the lives of poker’s most notable high-stakes players as they pursue their greatest non-poker passions,” said Sam Simmons, vice president of content at Poker Central. “Fans will have the opportunity to watch the world’s most interesting poker personalities experience the finest pursuits that Vegas has to offer, from sports and fashion to fine dining.”
This is the second production between Believe Entertainment Group and Poker Central and their first unscripted series together.
“The success of our scripted series ‘Poker Nights’ demonstrated the continued opportunity we have to deepen engagement with this community through all types of great programming rooted in poker,” said Brian Hunt, president of Believe Entertainment Group’s studio and head of development. “With ‘Super High Roller Club,’ we’ve created an unscripted format that showcases poker’s greatest players in ways fans have never seen before.”
In 2017, Poker Central and Believe Entertainment Group created and produced “Poker Nights,” a scripted short-form comedy series consisting of six-episodes focusing on the comical side of poker. The series starred “Saturday Night Live” and “30 Rock” alumnus Chris Parnell and included comedians Dan Chamberlain, Wes Haney, Richie Moriarty, Emily Tarver and Neko White. Phil Hellmuth also made a special guest appearance.
