LOS ANGELES — CBS has given full season orders to two of its freshman series: “Vegas” and “Elementary.”
Nina Tassler, president of entertainment for the network, said the two shows “have opened strong, delivering big audiences and winning performances in important time periods. Each of the shows has rich characters, big stars and a unique visual style that have stood out on the crowd, helping make two of our strongest nights even stronger.”
“Vegas” stars Dennis Quaid and Michael Chiklis in a drama about the clash between a sheriff and a mob boss in 1960s Las Vegas. “Elementary” is a modern twist on Sherlock Holmes starring Jonny Lee Miller and Lucy Liu.
