Simpsons Producer moves poker game to Playboy TV

June 16, 2009

Former Simpsons producer Sam Simon has reportedly said this week that he’s been told that his private poker games should be on television a long time ago due to their high level of entertainment. Finally we will be able to see that in action as he is putting this to the test with “Sam’s Game“.

This show will debut on Playboy TV this Thursday. The filming will be at The Palms casino and resort in Las Vegas. This show is inspired by the many poker nights that Simon himself hosted regularly for his friends. The show promises entertainment and includes Dave Attell, Artie Lange, Norm MacDonald and Jeff Ross and Jennifer Tilly, Simon’s former wife amongst others. 2001 Playmate of the Year and a “Celebrity Apprentice” contestant Brande Roderick will also appear.

Simon stated; “The stakes aren’t the biggest, the players aren’t the best, but the game is definitely the funniest.” Poker professional and champions Jennifer Leigh and Phil Laak will also be joining in the Texas Hold ‘Em games.

The show is self-described as a raunchy type of comedy with unfiltered language. The original idea for the show came from Playboy TV itself which knew about his Simon’s very entertaining and hot private games. Simon confirmed this and stated, “I’ve spent years in development to try to get shows on the air. When a network calls and says, `We want to shoot this’ the answer is Yes”.
