HBO has renewed the weekly late-night series Game Theory with Bomani Jones for a second season.
“Game Theory has been a dream, the most creatively thrilling thing I’ve ever done, with the best team I’ve ever had,” said Bomani Jones in a statement. “I couldn’t be more excited to apply what we learned from Season 1 and turn a good show into a great one.”
On the show, Jones shares “his satirical takes on the intersection of sports and culture through topical monologues, sketches and deep dives.” The first season is available to stream on HBO Max.
“Bomani’s perspective on sports comes from a great base of knowledge, unexpected insights and a sharp sense of humor,” said Nina Rosenstein, evp of HBO Programming. “He shows us a different side of the conversation, why it’s important and why we should care. He’s only just scratched the surface, and we’re looking forward to seeing what else he has up his sleeve.”
Jones is a contributor on HBO’s Back on The Record with Bob Costas and has made appearances in HBO Sports documentaries The Battle for Tobacco Road: Duke vs. Carolina and Runnin’ Rebels. In addition, he co-hosts ESPN’s Highly Questionable and High Noon and hosts a podcast.
