Playmakers

#4 - Playmakers

Highly stylized to generate a level of dramatic energy seldom seen on television, this lightning-paced series about a professional football team looks with unblinking candor beyond Sunday's glory, "good guy" endorsements, and super-jock celebrity. What is left is a world invested more with dark than light, where stars don't shine so much as they fall. Scripted with unsentimental compassion, the series weaves multiple storylines into an intricately patterned saga that changes minute to minute as the playmakers on the field struggle to negotiate the red zone between fame and real life, off the field.

As the team of three -- Eddie, Miami and Clark -- struggles to gain the upper hand, they'll be met with more than they bargained for. The hidden agendas and constant misdirection that are staples of the card table will emerge to conquer their lives beyond the walls of The Colorado Casino.
