Bookie (Max) - S: Maniscalco, Dorsey; C: Lorre - premieres 11/30/23


From Emmy(R)-nominated creator Chuck Lorre ("The Big Bang Theory") and Nick Bakay, this darkly funny comedy follows veteran Los Angeles bookie Danny (Sebastian Maniscalco) as the potential legalization of sports gambling in California threatens to upend his business for good. Alongside best friend and former NFL player Ray (Omar J. Dorsey), side-hustling sister Lorraine (Vanessa Ferlito), and reluctantly reformed drug dealer Hector (Jorge Garcia), Danny must contend with his increasingly unstable clients as he tries to settle their debts - all while making plenty of risky bets of his own. Full of relatable mishaps, Bookie chronicles one man's journey to adapt to an ever-changing world as he attempts to charm and con his way to the top.

PRINCIPAL CAST INFORMATION:
∑ Andrea Anders as Sandra
∑ Jorge Garcia as Hector
∑ Maxim Swinton as Anthony
∑ Omar J. Dorsey as Ray
∑ Sebastian Maniscalco as Danny
∑ Vanessa Ferlito as Lorraine

CREW INFORMATION:
∑ Andy Tennant as EP
∑ Chuck Lorre as CRTR/EP/DIR (Pilot)
∑ Judi Marmel as EP
∑ Nick Bakay as CRTR/EP
∑ Sebastian Maniscalco as EP
The big news about this one is after famously feuding Lorre... Charlie Sheen makes an appearance (there's a scene with Angus T. Jones as well).

This actually looks pretty good.

Never heard a word about it.

Is this exclusive to the Max app or does it air on HBO as well?

I'm not a big fan of Chuck Lorre fare or of sitcoms, but I sort of enjoyed the first two episodes of this.

Always enjoyed Nick Bakay's humor and he was the first to do a regular "Bad Beats" type segment on ESPN - like 25-30 years ago. Definitely will check this out.

I enjoyed the first two episodes. In for the season. The short length helps.

Yeah, this was pretty good. Didn’t know who Maniscalco even was, but these two eps were really well done. Funny.

I'll check it out. Mansicalco was a real scumbag in The Irishman.

That one scene in ep. 5 was one of the most hysterical things I’ve seen in a longtime.

I watched the first 2 episodes last night. Very funny. Loved the Charlie Sheen scene in rehab.

Itís well shot. And I really like watching the story of a working class bookie. Love the tone.

It might just be the way my brain works. But I donít think I ever laughed a single time at anything from Chuck Lorre.
