HBO Max ordered new comedy HOW TO BE A BOOKIE straight to series.

HOW TO BE A BOOKIE comes from Chuck Lorre and Nick Bakay, with Sebastian Maniscalco set to star. The single-camera series has an order for an eight-episode first season.

According to HBO Max, in the show, “a veteran bookie struggles to survive the impending legalization of sports gambling, increasingly unstable clients, family, co-workers, and a lifestyle that bounces him around every corner of Los Angeles, high and low.”

“It’s very exciting to have the next comedy series from Chuck Lorre and Warner Bros. Television,” said Casey Bloys, Chairman and CEO, HBO and HBO Max Content in a statement. “We have been fans of Sebastian’s for several years and look forward to what these brilliant comedic voices put together for HBO Max.”

“It’s an absolute dream to work with Sebastian Maniscalco—whom I’ve been a fan of for years,” added Lorre. “To have my first project at HBO Max with such an incredibly gifted comedian and alongside Nick Bakay is the trifecta. I can’t wait to get started.”

“I’m thrilled that HOW TO BE A BOOKIE, from Chuck Lorre and Nick Bakay, and starring Sebastian Maniscalco, one of the greatest stand-up comics working today, is moving forward at HBO Max,” said Channing Dungey, Chairman, Warner Bros. Television Group. “This smart, subversive, and hilarious series will be the next great comedy on HBO Max, continuing the successful partnership between Warner Bros. Television and Chuck Lorre Productions.”

Added Maniscalco: “It’s an incredible honor to be working with someone of Chuck’s pedigree and along with Nick Bakay. They’ve put together a truly remarkable script. And now to be in the family with Warner Bros. Television and HBO Max, who are putting out some of the most compelling stories on TV and streaming, I just couldn’t be more excited.”
