SVG Presents The Sports Entertainment Playbook Featuring World Series of Poker
The Sports Video Group is proud to present the first installment of the Sports Entertainment Playbook, featuring the World Series of Poker. The Playbook, which can be found HERE, provides an in-depth look at the production of the World Series of Poker and serves as a hands-on guide for producing events the merge the worlds of sports and entertainment.
The World Series of Poker is not a new, created-for-TV event. But TV has grown the event so much so that it might as well be. Shows like Poker After Dark have brought a new audience to the game. That growing audience means more poker on TV and this year — for the first time ever — live coverage of The Main Event on ESPN. HERE is a look at how PokerPROductions, and their various production partners keep the pace humming and the entertainment values high.
In the playbook, SVG and Larry Rogers, a member of the SVG Advisory Board and the Sports and Entertainment Committee, provide a deeper look at how events like the World Series of Poker are blurring the line between sports and entertainment.
