Inspired by real events in the 60s, ‘Vegas‘ tells the story of the rise of Sin City. Dennis Quaid (Wyatt Earp, The Special Relationship)stars as former Las Vegas Sheriff Ralph Lamb, a fourth-generation rancher trying to bring order to the city. Vegas is swelling with outsiders and corruption as the gambling and entertainment mecca is emerging from the tumbleweeds. Lamb (Quaid) is tasked with looking into the murder of a casino work and comes across Vincent Savino (Michael Chiklis – No Ordinary Family, The Shield), a ruthless Chicago gangster who plans to make Vegas his own. The two become engaged in a fierce battle for control of the budding oasis and, for both, folding is not an option.
Jason O’Mara (Terra Nova) stars as Deputy Jack Lamb, and Carrie-Anne Moss (The Matrix) plays the ambitious Assistant District Attorney, Katherine O’Connell.
The executive producers are Greg Walker (Without a Trace) Academy Award-nominated writer Nicholas Pileggi (Goodfellas), Arthur Sarkissian (Rush Hour), Cathy Konrad (Walk the Line) and Academy Award-nominated writer/director James Mangold (Walk the Line).
