There’s a mystery woman, Cassandra (Charity Wakefield), who helped him escape the cops and bring him to Mr. Johnson (Wesley Snipes). Turns out they run an organization that predicts crime, and they want him to join their services.
Everything about it is crazy over the top. The acting isn’t very good and I don’t know if the writing will hold up past one episode. The story was all over the place, and you can’t tell who is on what side or what anybody’s motives are. It’s slightly insane.
It barely kept me interested for 40 minutes so I doubt it will make it long term.
The Player airs Thursdays at 10pm on NBC.
