Players – New Comedy on Spike TV (trailer / video)

Upright Citizen Brigade creators, Matt Walsh and Ian Roberts have returned to television with a new show called Players on Spike TV. The show’s concept is that Matt and Ian are brothers that have opened a sports bar in Phoenix, a framework in which the improved chaos and hilarity will ensue. Personally I have a deep hatred for sports, so I’m a little worried about the subject matter. I’m a little put at ease by the fact that I’m a huge fan of Walsh and Roberts work, especially their work in UCB. I also quite enjoyed Sports Night, Aaron Sorkin’s first show, which was based around an ESPN-like sports show, so I know it can be done. The show premiered last Tuesday, and it airs every Tuesday at 9:30 pm central on Spike TV. Check out the official trailer and a hilarious faux press piece that they shot to promote the show.
