VEGAS BEHIND THE SCENES LOOK (Video) – Coming this fall, CBS takes you to the story of how Las Vegas became the Sin City you know today. Vegas takes place in the 1960′s and follows the story of Sheriff Ralph Lamb (Dennis Quaid), a rancher tasked with bringing order to the desert city. Not exactly looking the “sheriff” part, Lamb is determined to keep crime out of the fast growing gambling capital of the world.
PLOT: Dennis Quaid and Michael Chiklis star in this character-driven 1960′s period piece inspired by the true story of Ralph Lamb, a cowboy turned sheriff of Las Vegas, and Johnny Savino, a Chicago mob fixer. In a vast desert with unlimited opportunities, where no man is all good or all bad, Savino’s entrepreneurial vision collides with the law-and-order mandate of the sheriff. Academy Award-nominated writer Nicholas Pileggi and Academy Award-nominated writer/director James Mangold are the creative minds behind this compelling new drama.
