Travel Channel will add a primetime sports/reality series to its programming
lineup with the March 30 debut of The World Poker Tour.
The 13-episode series will take viewers to high-stakes tournaments filmed
before live audiences at casinos across the globe.
The final episode of the franchise will pit the winners of each tournament --
as well as individuals who meet a $25,000 ante -- against each other for a shot
a multimillion-dollar prize pool, the network said.
