On location in New Mexico with the cast and crew of “Vegas”, Part 1

It’s not all paradise and beaches for Giant Interactive’s Creative Content Group. With Hawaii Five-0 Season 2 bonus wrapped and now making its way through post production, Director/Producer David Naylor traveled to the deserts of New Mexico to be on hand during production of one of CBS’s newest pilots, Vegas, which is headed to their fall schedule, announced today. Based on the true story of Ralph Lamb, known as the “Cowboy Sheriff” during his tenure in law enforcement during the 60s and 70s, this new drama follows “…two powerful men – Lamb and Savino – [who] are engaged in a fierce battle for control of the budding oasis, and for both of them, folding is not an option.” (From CBS’s Fall schedule announcement) James Mangold directs Dennis Quaid as Ralph Lamb and Michael Chiklis as his nemesis, Chicago gangster Vincent Savino. A host of other big names such as Nicholas Pileggi, Greg Walker, Cathy Konrad and Arthur Sarkissian make this one to look forward to. Check out some of the pictures David sent back:
