Full Show Summary
At a Las Vegas casino there is a lot to do, a lot to keep an eye on, a lot going on behind the scenes, and the Montecito is no exception. There are high-rolling guests to pamper, cheaters to catch, a restaurant to manage, thieves to apprehend and business deals to broker. “Las Vegas” shows us all of it through the lives of the characters who are running the resort and casino and making sure things run smoothly for all involved. There are also elements of romance and humor to give the show a distinct pulse. Whatever may threaten the Montecito or its guests, even if it just a pesky card counter, you can bet that the security crew won’t let it go on for long. In charge of security is the strict, no-nonsense and sometimes no-humor ex-CIA agent Ed Deline. He is a stern taskmaster and takes protecting the casino’s interests very seriously. Danny McCoy is Ed’s right hand man, and keeps a close eye on the security cameras for anything untoward, using his military training when needed. Mike Cannon is the smooth-talking head valet and also a fully qualified mechanical engineer. Sam Marquez believes herself to be the best casino hostess anywhere, and in unrelenting in her drive to attract big spenders to the casino. Delinda Deline is Ed’s daughter, the casino’s food and beverage manager and Danny’s sometimes-girlfriend, much to Ed’s annoyance. Mary Connell is the special events director whose sweet demeanor conceals a troubled past. The problems that the Montecito crew face up to in “Las Vegas” range from unhappy guests to technical problems with the machines, to cheaters who think they can beat the house and those who seek to rob it at gunpoint. For us it’s entertainment, but to them it’s just another day on the job.
