Fall TV: Game of Silence, Wesley Snipes Thriller Get Series Orders at NBC

New Fall TV Shows

NBC ordered another pair of new dramas — Game of Silence and The Player — for the 2015-16 TV Season, as a busy, busy Friday drew to a close here in TV land.

The descriptions with cast follow:

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. When a dark secret they thought they had buried resurfaces, the brotherhood bands together to right the wrongs of their shared past — a journey that will push the limits of their loyalty and quench their thirst for revenge.

The cast also includes Michael Raymond-James, Larenz Tate, Bre Blair, Conor O’Farrell, Deidrie Henry, Demetrius Grosse and Claire Van Der Boom.

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.

The cast also includes Charity Wakefield and Damon Gupton.

  2. Justsomeguy says:

    Both shows sound great. Let’s hope they deliver.

  3. I’m done with NBC with them cancelling Allegiance and State of Affairs.

  4. Mr. Tran K says:

    BEST. NEWS. EVER. Really hope that both Game of Silence and The Player (fka Endgame) should become breakout hits for NBC. In my opinion The Player is the one I’m looking forward to because it’s from the producers of The Blacklist.

  5. Stacie says:

    Yes Game of Silence!

  6. LADY_in_MD says:

    I love David Lyons I even watched the cape! Monroe will live again!

  7. Kim says:

    Can not wait to watch Game of Silence! David Lyons and Michael Raymond-James both back on my TV screen AND in the same show, BEST NEWS EVER!!!!

  8. DavidSask says:

    The Player is not much different from Blacklist so why bother? Nice cast though!

  9. Joey Padron says:

    both shows sounds good. can’t wait to see the trailers for the shows!

  10. Joey says:

    Yay MRJ will be back on my screen!

  11. boone says:

    Wesley SNIPES!!!!! Enough said.

  12. Viv says:

    GOS sounds good. Endgame was a better title for Player but sheesh! All these gaming metaphors — Tywin Lannister must be chuckling in his grave…

  13. Alex Mindev says:

    NBC still clueless after all these years…both those concepts seem OK for a mini-series or limited show event (think 1 season). Just like FOX’s “the following”…anyways NBC has failed to deliver time and time again. Every time there is a hint of a successful show it gets cancelled before it gets going, or is simply mismanaged by being put on a bad night/time slot…then the big wigs are waiting for unrealistic ratings to occur based on an antiquated system (does DVR even count for anything?).

  14. Jess says:

    definitely be tuning in. They sound interesting.

  15. I am so excited about Game of Silence being picked bonus points it has Michael Raymond-James!!! Thank you nbc!

  16. Nan says:

    I was OK with GOS until I got to the Michael Raymond-James part and that killed it. He’s a dreadful actor and nearly ruined OUAT. So no.

  17. khaira says:

    Doesn’t game of silence sound like Mystic River? And… what about that title? Couldn’t they find another one, it’s confusing

  18. Lucy says:

    Great news! David Lyons is an excellent actor,i’m glad to see him again on TV.I look forward to Game of Silence

  19. Nic says:

    So happy with Game of silence, looks great, especially because is a mix of Mystic River and sleepers. And the fact that has Michael Raymond James is even better, another great tv series that will show the great actor he is and after that awfull writing from OUAT that only makes all actors look bad, he really deserves one amazing show with amazing writing.

  20. Maria Mead says:
