Manhattan Casino Nights, the North-West’s foremost Casino Hire Company based in Chester, will be appearing in the new series of the acclaimed comedy TV show, Shameless.
Although filming took place last Tuesday in Manchester, Manhattan’s croupiers will not be seen until Episode 4 of the forthcoming series of Shameless, due to be screened on Channel 4 and E4 later this year. The company were also asked to supply the production team with all casino props including blackjack, poker and craps tables for the set.
This is something of a coup for local man Matt Bridges and his team. The company’s professionalism and reliability, along with casino standard equipment, led to the Shameless crew using the mobile casino firm’s services. “It was a real honour to provide the set for the Casino scene for Shameless” says owner Matt Bridges, “and a real departure from our normal party, weddings and theme events as we don’t often see that kind of mayhem!”
The storyline centres round a scheme by the madcap Gallagher boys who, never short of initiative, attempt to use fake chips in a casino. Needless to say, they are rumbled, and viewers will see a cast member leaping onto and across one of the gaming tables, as a fight breaks out between the Gallagher’s’ and the security staff.
Manhattan Casino Nights specialise in the hire of authentic casino equipment for events such as fun theme nights, weddings, corporate entertainment, charity fundraising, dinner dances, and private parties.
