Sebastian Maniscalco Stars In New Max Comedy Series, "Bookie"

Chuck Lorre, the creator of so many beloved comedy series including Two And A Half Men & The Big Bang Theory, is back with his newest Max Original comedy series, Bookie. We have a first look at the trailer for the new Sebsatian Maniscalco lead comedy series coming to Max later this month.

Watch the new trailer above.

The synopsis for the new comedy series, "Bookie."

In the new Lorre produced series, “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.”
