Showtime Working On Sports Betting Series Set For March Debut

The documentary films arm of Showtime Sports is at work on a series that goes inside the sports betting world, using the most recent NFL season as a backdrop. Titled “Action," the four-part series slated to debut March 24 follows the lives of professional gamblers, oddsmakers and bookmakers -- both legal and illegal -- chronicling the move toward regulated, state-sponsored sports betting coming off of last year’s watershed Supreme Court ruling. Seahawks QB Russell Wilson, bookmaker Jimmy Vaccaro and broadcaster and VSIN co-Founder Brent Musburger all make appearances in the series, which is produced by Boardwalk Pictures in association with Keep On Running Pictures.
