Tv Season Info

Eras collide in 1960s Las Vegas when cattle rancher-turned-sheriff Ralph Lamb (Dennis Quaid) puts his old-west grittiness up against modern glitz and greasiness of the gaming industry, particularly the Savoy Casino managed by mob boss Vincent Savino (Michael Chiklis). As bodies surface as regularly as on "CSI," compelling characters both seedy and heroic emerge in the never-ending battle between law enforcement and the burgeoning Vegas crime scene. Lamb's brother Jack (Jason O'Mara) serves as deputy and develops the show's primary romantic link with Savoy countroom manager Mia (Sarah Jones), whose father Johnny (Michael Wiseman) is less than approving of the relationship. Dixon Lamb (Taylor Handley) eagerly contributes to his father's investigations, slowly gaining Ralph's confidence while working a key late-season case involving a Hollywood starlet and the arrival of rival mobsters to challenge Savino's reign. "Casino" screenwriter Nicholas Pileggi serves as co-creator.
