From creator Chuck Lorre (The Big Bang Theory), this darkly funny comedy follows veteran Los Angeles bookie Danny as the potential legalisation of sports gambling in California threatens to upend his business for good.

Alongside best friend and former NFL player Ray, side-hustling sister Lorraine and reluctantly reformed drug dealer Hector, Danny must contend with his increasingly unstable clients as he tries to settle their debts - all while making plenty of risky bets of his own.

Full of relatable mishaps, Bookie chronicles one man's journey to adapt to an ever-changing world as he attempts to charm and con his way to the top.

In the series premiere, "Always Smell the Money": While trying to recover his clients' losses, Danny finds himself in possession of dubious money.

After running into an old friend, Danny and Ray continue their desperate hunt for in-the-red actor Charlie Sheen.

In the second episode of the weekly double bill, "Making Lemonade": After an unexpectedly violent confrontation, Danny and Ray scramble to cover their tracks.

Treasures Decoded 5

Historians and scientists search for insights into the origins and significance of some of the most enigmatic relics and mysteries known to man.

What secrets about the past might ancient cities and artefacts unlock?

A team of archaeologists and experts visit forgotten cities, crumbling burial sites and hidden tombs.

Forensic studies, DNA analysis and good old-fashioned hunches are all used in the quest for answers.

Could a chance archaeological find in Cairo reshape the legacy of a forgotten Egyptian pharaoh?

Does a treasure trove of prehistoric animal bones point to the existence of a prehistoric zoo, and might a tomb in a field in Denmark transform our ideas about the Vikings?

No stone is left unturned and no bone unexamined in this fifth season of Treasures Decoded.

In the Season 5 premiere, "Jonah and the Whale": The story of Jonah and the Whale is one of the most famous, and most mysterious, tales in the Old Testament.

Recent finds by archaeologists in the ruins beneath Jonah's shrine in Iraq make a compelling argument that many of the events and characters in this biblical parable are based on fact.

See treasures that date back over 2,500 years and discover a lost world where the prophet Jonah himself may have preached.
