From Gary Scott Thompson — the writer of the hit film “The Fast and the Furious” — comes “Las Vegas,” NBC‘s hit drama series. This fast-paced, sexy drama follows the elite Las Vegas surveillance team charged with maintaining the security of one of “Sin City’s” largest resorts and casinos.

Television icon Tom Selleck joins the cast this year as A.J. Cooper the mysterious rancher who takes the reigns as the new owner of the Montecito Resort & Casino. Danny McCoy, an ex-U.S. Marine and Las Vegas native, (Josh Duhamel, “All My Children,” “Win a Date with Tad Hamilton,” “Turistas,” and the upcoming “Transformers: The Movie”) heads the surveillance team and deals with card-counting cheaters, costly streaks of random luck and rival casinos stealing their big-money players.

Rounding out this cast of high rollers is Delinda Deline (Molly Sims “The Benchwarmers,” MTV’s “House of Style”), Danny’s love interest and the daughter of his old boss, the Montecito’s former premier surveillance chief; the previous all-knowing valet who climbed the ranks to be an integral surveillance team member, Mike Cannon (James Lesure, “For Your Love”), and the ever wheeling and dealing casino host, Samantha “Sam” Jane Marquez (Vanessa Marcil, “General Hospital,” “Beverly Hills, 90210”).

Thompson also serves as executive producer along with Matt Pyken (NBC’s “Deadline,” “John Doe”), Kim Newton (“X-Files,” “The Fugitive,” “Cold Case”), Justin Falvey (“Undeclared”), Darryl Frank (“Taken”) for this series from Universal Media Studios and DreamWorks Television.
