Hottest threads from the Cue Chalk Board



Can “The Hustlers” garner the mass appeal of “Pawn Stars” or “The Deadliest Catch?” Will Jennifer Barretta gain the notoriety of a Kardashian or a Braxton? Is Mike Dechaine pool’s version of Gordon Ramsay? The answers to those and other questions will begin to take shape after TruTv’s new pool-focused reality show debuts Friday, March 22, at 9:00 pm EST.

The 10-episode first season of “The Hustlers” follows a troupe of players of various skill levels as they play for money and jockey for hierarchical standing at Steinway Billiards, one of New York City’s busiest poolrooms. Pros Mike Dechaine and Jennifer Barretta are among the central characters in the series, which also features self-appointed ringleader William Finnegan, Boston player Jarrod Clowery and locals Gregg McAndrews, Emily Duddy, Scott Simonetti and Gary O’Callaghan.

“The Hustlers” was produced by reality TV powerhouse Pilgrim Studios. The episodes were taped at Steinway over a 10-week period this spring.
