Fox goes all in on Las Vegas-set comedy

What happens in Vegas stays in...uhhh, everywhere? Not quite the same catchiness as the original, is it.


Fox is bringing Las Vegas into all of your homes with Loveland, a new single-camera comedy from Danny Jacobson, the creator of Mad About You. The series will focus on a messed-up, dysfunctional family that operates a wedding chapel, says the Hollywood Reporter.

That's kind of a cute gimmick. If it catches on, you could have a lot of fun with celebrity cameos.

Jacobson last worked as a writer and executive consultant on CBS' Rob, which featured Rob Schneider. He will write and executive produce Loveland for Warner Brothers Television. 

In addition, he has worked on Ryan Reynolds' Two Guys, a Girl and a Pizza Place (wow, I totally forgot about that show) and Roseanne. 

Earlier this week, ABC bought an untitled single-camera comedy set in Las Vegas about a mormon family heads to Sin City. 

Expect NBC to announce a single-camera comedy about a recovering gamber who moves to Las Vegas but struggles with his addition. And CBS to follow with a single-camera comedy set in Las Vegas about two 70-year-old newlyweds that elope in Vegas and decide to start a new life there. The catch? Charlie Sheen plays both.

Okay, maybe not. I'll give this Fox show a chance.
