Shanna Hiatt, former host of the "World Poker Tour," will serve as the host of a new late night poker show, "Poker After Dark." The show, billed as a look inside the exclusive Las Vegas poker scene, will premiere on NBC on January 2 at 2:05AM ET/PT and air Monday through Saturday.
Each week will feature six poker professionals vying for a winner-take-all $120,000 first place prize. Each episode will feature one table as it develops over the week, culminating with a winner on Friday night. Saturday night's show – the "director's cut" – will recap the week's events with Hiatt and that week's winner offering commentary and insight into their winning strategy.
Some of the pros featured will be Phil Ivey, Daniel Negreanu, Doyle Brunson, Howard Lederer, Chris Ferguson, Erick Lindgren, Jennifer Harman and Gus Hansen.
