While nothing is official, we hear the LA to Vegas TV show is inching closer to a second season on FOX. The network hasn’t made an announcement, but a source indicates some initial steps in season two pre-production have already been taken, in advance of kicking off production over the summer. Earlier this week, we reported creator Lon Zimmet and Steve Levitan were already working on a way to “make some noise” and land a season two renewal. Perhaps they have done just that.
A FOX workplace comedy, LA to Vegas stars Dylan McDermott, Kim Matula, Ed Weeks, Nathan Lee Graham, Olivia Macklin, Peter Stormare, and Amir Talai. The sitcom centers on a weekly Jackpot Airlines roundtrip flight from Los Angeles to Las Vegas. The first season kicked off in January with decent numbers and scored a bigger episode order a week later, but struggled in the ratings as the season wore on.
