Apparently the screeners have been sent out for the “The Fantasy Sports Gamble,” a Frontline/New York Times investigative documentary set to air Tuesday night on PBS.
Expect moralizing. A review from Variety says the producers have “done yeoman’s work in shedding light on the unsavory nature” of DFS sites.
Also tonight, 60 Minutes Sports, which airs on Showtime, will take a look at DFS and sounds like it may include new and possibly damaging information.
The NY Post reports that the Showtime feature includes info that two “insiders” from DFS sites are working with state investigators, and that more legal action could be forthcoming.
“I don’t want to pre-judge anything,” the Post quotes state Attorney General Eric Schneiderman. “But information that has come forward has suggested that some of the representations they have made—appear to be false and misleading, designed to lure the small players in.”
60 Minutes Sports airs at 8 p.m. Eastern on Showtime; Frontline airs at 10 p.m. on PBS.
