Arliss (stylized as Arli$$) is a cult TV show that aired on HBO. It lasted from August 1996 to September 2002, for a total of 80 episodes. It is perhaps best known for managing to air for seven seasons despite mediocre ratings and reviews due to a small but apparently loyal following.

The show follows the adventures of sports agent Arliss Michael, played by Robert Wuhl. Also in the regular cast are Sandra Oh as his personal assistant Rita Wu, Michael Boatman as his financial advisor Stanley Babson, and Jim Turner as retired football star turned associate agent Kirby Carlisle.

The show also features a great many appearances by real-life athletes and other sports figures playing themselves.
