GAME OF SILENCE
From Carol Mendelsohn (CSI) comes this w drama about a successful Atlanta attorney (David Lyons, Revolution) whose long-lost childhood friends unexpectedly reappear after 25 years.

THE PLAYER
From the producers of The Blacklist and starring Wesley Snipes and Strike Back‘s Philip Winchester, this action-packed Las Vegas thriller follows a former military operative-turned-security expert who is drawn into a high-stakes game where an organization of wealthy individuals gamble on his ability to stop some of the biggest crimes imaginable from playing out.
