In May, the U.S. Supreme Court gave sports gaming rights to all 50 states and a new $250–400 billion dollar industry was born.

Now, sports fans across all leagues, ages and demographics are paying attention. Our show gives fans behind-the-scenes access to the dealmakers, athletes and entrepreneurs that are building this new industry.

Much like Showtime’s The Circus, Well Played will be a constant, investigative, up-to-the-minute show.

Our hosts Ryan Howard (World Series Champion and Venture Capitalist), Cynthia Frelund (NFL Network) and Wayne Kimmel (Sports Tech Venture Capitalist) are in the center of this new “Gold Rush” – leading viewers to a life Well Played.
