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.
James Caan stars as Big Ed Deline, the head of the surveillance team for the Montecito Resort & Casino.
With his protégé Danny McCoy, an ex-U.S. Marine and Las Vegas native, they deal with card-counting cheaters, costly streaks of random luck and rival casinos stealing their big-money players.
If the typical job-related pressures weren’t enough, Big Ed found Danny in bed with his only daughter, Delinda.
Rounding out this cast of high rollers is Danny McCoy’s longtime, savvy friend and director of special events, Mary Connell; the all-knowing valet Mike Cannon; sleek pit boss Nessa Holt a.k.a. "The Ice Queen"; and elusive former competitor Samantha "Sam" Jane.
In the third season premiere, Ed's got major problems as the revamped Montecito struggles to finish work in time to re-open on new boss' Monica Mancuso's (Lara Flynn Boyle) schedule.
He also tries to lure back Danny and his former staff to prevent a suspected smash-and-grab heist that has hit other casinos.
But convincing Danny and the gang proves to be difficult since each has his or her reasons for leaving, and what's more, Ed suspects two construction hard-hats are planning an inside robbery once the Montecito's doors swing open again amid much fanfare.
