Man sues ‘Face the Ace’ poker show for $85mil
Everyone’s favorite gossip site,TMZ.com, is reporting that Brandon McSmith is claiming that Poker Productions stole the idea of ‘Face the Ace’ from him. McSmith claims he pitched an idea for a poker show where ordinary people would compete against poker pros hidden behind doors –‘Face the Ace’s’ premise is for ordinary people to compete against poker pros hidden behind smoked glass doors.
McSmith is looking for a whopping $85,000,000 in damages. The amount of the lawsuit seems quite steep when you take into account ‘Face the Ace’ has been a ratings disaster for NBC; relegated to a Saturday afternoon timeslot. Not only have ratings been low, but the show has also come under fire for its lackluster hosting, and a lack of action and energy.
The most amazing part of the story to me is that anyone would want to take credit for creating the show. ‘Face the Ace’ may go down as one of the worst game shows in the history of television. Personally, I wouldn’t want my name discredited for being the brainchild of the show.
