High Roller Seeks Revenge on the Town That Robbed Him of Three Million Dollars in 'MAN VS. VEGAS' Premiering October 22 On CMT

Daren Leverenz Returns to Las Vegas to Reclaim His Fortune

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., July 14 -- Ambitious high roller Daren Leverenz seeks revenge on Las Vegas after losing three million dollars there in the late 1990s in the upcoming eight-episode CMT original series, MAN VS. VEGAS, premiering Saturday, October 22 at 10:00 PM, ET/PT.

After capturing the American dream at an early age -- home, family, career, cars and three million dollars in the bank, Daren Leverenz gambled it away in a city unsympathetic to empty pockets. MAN VS. VEGAS follows Leverenz as he returns to Las Vegas with a Robin Hood fervor, hell-bent on winning his money back. Along the way, Leverenz meets everyday tourists who become part of his mission to take on the town.

After selling most of his assets, Leverenz returns to Las Vegas armed with one million dollars of his own money and steely determination. It's smiles and high-fives as Leverenz takes amateur gamblers and gives them the adrenaline rush of a high roller, coaching his amateur comrades on how to win -- from newlyweds to senior citizens. "I'm doing it for anybody that's ever lost," says Leverenz, who chants his credo of "go big or go home."

The half-hour series MAN VS. VEGAS is a roller coaster of risk, wheels, cards, chips and bags of money, that is jaw-dropping to the lucky onlookers that gather around to see if Leverenz can beat the casino giants at their own game.

MAN VS. VEGAS is produced by Sokolobl Entertainment, with Sam Sokolow and Rob Lobl serving as executive producers. Paul Villadolid is executive in charge of production for CMT.
