It’s (almost) game over for The Player.
NBC has trimmed the freshman drama’s episode order to nine, our sister site Deadline reports; Episode 9 is currently being filmed, and production will shut down once it’s completed.
The Player, which airs Thursdays at 10/9c, stars Philip Winchester as Alex Kane, a former security expert who now stops crimes of which high-rollers are betting on the outcome. The series also stars Charity Wakefield, Damon Gupton, and Wesley Snipes.
