The entire first season of network television's sexiest series, Las Vegas arrives in stores January 4, 2005 in a sizzling new version featuring uncut and uncensored footage too torrid for network TV.

Produced by The NBC Agency, "Rumble in the Montecito" joins Arena Football League team owners John Elway and Jon Bon Jovi and the stars of "Las Vegas" in a co-branded and action-packed mini-movie designed to promote the series and ArenaBowl XIX to be held in Las Vegas next June. The three-disc collection, which also features all 23 exciting episodes, is priced to own at $59.98 SRP. The pre-order close is November 30, 2004.

Praised as "Slick, fast-paced and sexy" by TV Guide and "Bottom Line: Jackpot" by Variety , Las Vegas stars James Caan (The Godfather), Josh Duhamel (Win a Date with Tad Hamilton), Nikki Cox (The Nutty Professor II), Molly Sims (Starsky & Hutch) and Vanessa Marcil ("Beverly Hills 90210") in the sexy, sophisticated fast-paced NBC drama about security operations at the Montecito, a glamorous Las Vegas resort where the unexpected always happens. In season one, Paris Hilton, Alec Baldwin, Dennis Hopper and Sugar Ray are among the featured guest stars.

The Las Vegas DVD includes bonus features that will thrill fans of the show and offers a fascinating look at the history of the fabled city of Las Vegas, which celebrates its centennial in 2005.
