Poker Boss is truly celebrity poker on steroids, I plan on being the only Boss standing at the end
Poker Boss all started when LOOKHU founders Byron Booker& Roy Liebrecht were looking for a cool TV show for its World Poker Channel, co-owned by publicly-traded World Poker Fund Holdings, Inc. (OTC PINK: WPFH), which already has some celebrity owners attached to it like Justin Bieber, Floyd Mayweather, Tyga, Soulja Boy, Kyle Massey and four-time Grammy award winner Poo Bear. We needed a really cool show to compliment these amazing stars.
Veteran TV producers Sam Riddle and Robert Huxley have collaborated with LOOKHU to create the perfect blend of game show and poker tournament. Poker Boss will give everyday players the chance to test their wits at the poker table alongside some of the biggest names in the entertainment industry as well as some of the best poker pros on the planet. The player's poker smarts, loyalty and intuition are all tested as we get to the final table.
To bring Poker Boss to life, three important things happened: First, we got the full commitment from the team at World Poker Fund including their partners from the TCL Chinese Theater and Lure Nightclub in Hollywood CA to produce Poker Boss with us. Second, TV producers Sam and Hux have approached famous poker pros like Phil Laak, Antonio Esfandiari, Jeff Madsen, Jennifer Tilly, and Phil Gordon to get them on board. Third, the LOOKHU team geared up to make the platform ready to serve the massive poker audience worldwide.
Poker Boss will be featured on LOOKHU's World Poker Channel. LOOKHU, available in the Apple and Google play stores, allows the World Poker Channel to be on over 100,000,000 smart devices in the US alone. "The vehicle for releasing TV shows today has gone from traditional media platforms like TV, to alternatives like smartphones and iPad and now back to connected TVs. The World Poker Channel is following the new poker fans of today by streaming on both web and mobile platforms," exclaimed LOOKHU CEO Byron Booker.
"This is a huge win for poker enthusiasts and all our users on LOOKHU alike. Not only does LOOKHU feature the most popular web TV and trending videos available but now it will also deliver exclusive content from some of the biggest stars in the business," says Roy Liebrecht LOOKHU COO.
