It may not be yet legal to play poker online in the U.S., but that isn’t stopping the never-more-popular pasttime from being a source of fascination to the media.
Coming this summer, entertainment company Comcast will air a new reality show called “2 Months, $2 Million,” which will follow the ups and downs of four Internet poker players who, using their own money, try to win up a big sum of cash through online competition.
“What makes ’2 Months’ intriguing is the duality of the guys,” Neal Tiles, president of Comcast’s G4 division told Variety magazine. “On the surface, each comes across as just your average G4 viewer but, in reality, they’re sharks playing for keeps with big money and living a lifestyle our viewers can only dream of. This [is] what we intend to capture.”
The series will consist of ten episodes, each a half-hour long, and is scheduled to begin in August. For more information, please click here.
