Arliss Michaels is not a sports agent, he is a sports super agent. To his athletes and to the world around them he is God. He is like Jerry Maguire but without a conscience. Written by

Every episode began and ended with the lead character reading in voiceover chapters from a fictional book he had written about his life as a successful sports agent. The point of this was to show that the character did the exact opposite of what he wrote. Robert Wuhl said he got the idea to do this after seeing a book written by Donald J. Trump. Wuhl said he always wondered what the difference was between what was written and what was actually done. See more »

Even Katie Couric doesn't get up this early.

Arli$$ is beyond brilliant. It is down-to-earth, greedy, and real! I am not a sports fan, but I can't wait to see the next present in store for me when I watch Arli$$. There is no show in TV's history that is able to entertain and move you at the same time, than Arli$$.
Robert Wuhl as Arliss Michaels should receive an Emmy
Jim Turner as Kirby Carlisle should receive an Emmy
Sandra Oh as Rita Wu should receive an Emmy (and I luv her! :)
Michael Boatman as Stanley Babson should receive an Emmy
I can't imagine a better cast. They all perform 110%. They bring their characters to life. This show is incredible!!!
