NBC Pulls Plug on Annie Duke-inspired Sitcom

"All-In," the Annie Duke-inspired poker sitcom, vying for air time on NBC, has reportedly been rejected by the network. The show was to be based on the life of pro poker player Annie Duke, albeit only loosely.

Behind the effort were Lisa Kudrow (of Friends fame) and her production company, who for the past year and then some, have been working to develop the poker show and produce a pilot to wow network execs. In further efforts to court the network, the creators of the show enlisted well-known comedienne Janeane Garofalo to play the poker-playing protagonist. It seems, however, that Garofalo's star power wasn't enough to get NBC to jump at the new show. After the network viewed and tested the pilot show, it decided to discontinue efforts for "All-In."
