The Casino

Show Summary

A new unscripted drama series from Mark Burnett, the creative force behind the Emmy award-winning series "Survivor" , The Casino provides an extraordinary 24/7, behind-the-scenes look at the real-life drama that unfolds at the Golden Nugget Las Vegas Hotel and Casino. This lure of Las Vegas is captured on camera and serve as a backdrop to the story of two young entrepreneurs who found remarkable success during the internet boom and are now living out their dream of owning a newly renovated hotel & casino and restoring the glory of its "Rat Pack" heyday. This series will offer a unique and unprecedented window into the world's most exciting business as our cameras wind their way into places never before seen on TV. At the center of the story will be Timothy Poster and Thomas Breitling, whose start-up "Travelscape.com" revolutionized the travel industry. The company's sale to Expedia in 2000 made the pair multimillionaires, and Breitling and Poster have used part of their fortune to fulfill a lifelong dream by purchasing the Golden Nugget Las Vegas Hotel and Casino on historic Fremont Street in downtown Las Vegas. The two are now betting that they can revitalize this landmark casino, built in 1946, and return the luster that once made it one of the hottest places in Las Vegas. Conceived by Burnett and production partner Conrad Riggs, The Casino goes beyond the challenges facing Breitling and Poster, to explore the personal dramas unfolding amongst the guests and some of the 3000 employees inhabiting this world, including cocktail waitresses, entertainers, blackjack dealers, pit bosses, security and management. Twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, this real-life cast of characters runs an elaborate, high-stakes operation that caters to visitors from around the world seeking the thrill and excitement of Las Vegas.moreless
