A true player never loses his game. But what happens when the rules are suddenly changed? Former NFL star and perpetual playboy Eric Swift is tackling the Big Apple -- giving 100% to his new job as a TV sportscaster and 200% to New York City's throbbing nightlife and beautiful women. Even Eric's ultraconservative coanchor, Eden Alexander, can't resist his charms. But when Eden agrees to a date, she insists on choosing the location: the Black Baptist Church Convention, to witness revolutionary rapper-turned-preacher Reverend Francois. Eric might have missed the reverend's message, but when it comes to wooing Eden he doesn't miss a beat: Soon he's feigning his faith...while secretly indulging in sin on the side. As Eric begins to bite off way more than he can chew, everyone around him seems to be falling apart. Eric's best friend LeBaron Brown and his new wife Phoenix are expecting their first child, but not without medical complications. Then Eric's indomitable father is hit with a serious illness. With Eden in the dark about Eric's escapades, his addictions continue to grow unchecked. Can Eric save himself from his inner demons and find a way to right all the wrongs in his life?]
