Players is an American crime drama that aired on NBC from 1997–1998. Co-created by Dick Wolf and Shaun Cassidy, the series starred Ice-T, Costas Mandylor, Frank John Hughes, and Mia Korf. It was produced by Wolf Films in association with NBC and Universal Television. Players was cancelled after 18 episodes. Mia Korf stated that the show was unable to secure a permanent season due to programming restriction in place for the then-forthcoming 1998 Winter Olympics.[1]


The series follows three young ex-cons who, as a part of a new FBI program, are commissioned to track down criminals.





In 2008, the series began airing on the Sleuth network.[2]
