EXCLUSIVE: Check out this exclusive trailer from Yahoo for its new episodic series, Sin City Saints, starring Malin Akerman, Tom Arnold and Andrew Santino. Developed by Mike Tollin (One Tree Hill, Smallville, Varsity Blues), Bryan Gordon and Mandalay Sports Media, the series debuts March 23 on the company’s Yahoo Screen video service.
The half-hour comedy series follows the ups and downs of a Las Vegas expansion basketball team of the same name. Other executive producers are Gordon (Curb Your Enthusiasm), who also directed, and Chris Case (Legit, Retired at 35, Titus), who also wrote.
Akerman plays a Stanford-educated lawyer who is special assistant to the league commissioner, sent to ride herd on the unruly franchise. Arnold is a casino host and consummate city insider and fixer. Santino plays a rambunctious Silicon Valley tycoon who always wanted to own a pro basketball team but is in way over his head.
The premiere of “Sin City Saints” follows the sixth season premiere of “Community,” exclusively on Yahoo Screen.
