- Trailer for new Vegas-inspired comedy released
- Show takes a comedic look at the highs and lows of Vegas
The many casinos and countless lights of Las Vegas attract millions year-on-year, as well as the cameras of the entertainment industry.
It’s hoped that a new TV comedy inspired by Sin City will attract millions of viewers when it launches on Fox. Stellar names are among the executive producers, including Will Ferrell and Steven Levitan
The trailer for LA to Vegas was recently released and has been warmly received online. The show will take a comedic look at both the positive and negative attributes associated with Vegas, namely the hope for that big win and the hangovers brought on by a few too many comps at the roulette wheel.
L.A. to Vegas looks to be a madcap comedy which focuses on the fictional and aptly named Jackpot Airlines and the somewhat eccentric passengers who make the roundtrip from L.A. to Vegas every weekend. The passengers are underdogs and dreamers from all walks of life, hoping to be fortunate enough to win big and change their lives for the better.
As of the time of writing, the show doesn’t yet have an official air date, nor a time slot. It is currently slated to launch as a midseason entry during the 2017-18 TV season; chances are, it will debut sometime in the first quarter of 2018. Episodes of the comedy are 30 minutes in length, including commercials, though it’s currently unknown how many episodes will be in the show’s first season.

Dylan McDermott (American Horror Story) plays the flight’s pilot, Capt. Dave, while Nathan Lee Graham (Hitch) and Kim Matula (UnREAL) play the flight attendants.
