Vegas: A Look At The New CBS Crime Series
Geoff Berkshire at Hitfix.com offers a look at CBS' new crime series Vegas.
Dennis Quaid is a cowboy sheriff who fights crime by riding a horse through 1960s Las Vegas.
Do you really need to know anything more about the new CBS drama "Vegas"? Personally, I'm already sold.
But it doesn't hurt that Michael Chiklis (Vic Mackey forever!) is also on board as a "ruthless Chicago gangster," Carrie-Anne Moss has the plum role of an "ambitious assistant district attorney" and potential love interest for Quaid, and Jason O'Mara rebounds from "Terra Nova" as Quaid's brother and deputy.
The series comes from "Goodfellas" and "Casino" writer Nicholas Pileggi and the pilot is directed by filmmaker James Mangold ("Walk the Line," "3:10 to Yuma"). It looks bold and expansive and possibly a lot more serialized than the CBS standard.
