[via press release from NBC]

SIN CITY UPS THE SPICE FACTOR AS WOLFGANG PUCK OPENS HIS NEWEST RESTAURANT IN NBC�S �LAS VEGAS�

BURBANK, Calif. -- December 9, 2005 -- One of NBC's most popular dramas �"Las Vegas" (Mondays, 9-10 p.m. ET) � is the home of famed chef Wolfgang Puck's newest restaurant. The restaurant is the most recent addition to the impressively realistic set of "Las Vegas," which already features a casino floor, lounge, club, sports book and reception area. The restaurant and Puck himself will be featured on "Las Vegas" beginning Jan. 9.

"Wolfgang Puck is the man who originally brought world-class cuisine to Las Vegas, revolutionizing dining in sin city," explains executive producer Gary Scott Thompson. "Wolfgang's restaurant is the perfect dining destination for the characters of "Las Vegas" and I am pleased he has chosen the Montecito for his seventh Las Vegas establishment."

The Wolfgang Puck Fine Dining Group has been widely recognized as the industry leader in creating dining experiences that consistently set the standard for restaurant design, service and food. The group currently owns and operates six distinct restaurants in Las Vegas, including Spago and Chinois (Forum Shops at Caesars), Trattoria del Lupo (Mandalay Bay), Postrio (Grand Canal Shoppes at The Venetian) and the Wolfgang Puck Bar & Grill (MGM Grand) as well as the city's leading banquet and catering service, Wolfgang Puck Private Dining and Catering.

"Las Vegas" is a fast-paced, sexy drama which follows an elite Las Vegas surveillance team charged with maintaining the security of one of "Sin City's" largest resorts and casinos. Oscar and Golden Globe Award nominee James Caan ("The Godfather," "Misery") stars as Ed Deline, the President of Operations for the Montecito Resort & Casino. With his prot�g� Danny McCoy (Josh Duhamel, "Win a Date With Tad Hamilton"), a former U.S. Marine and Las Vegas native, they deal with a variety of security challenges. The series also stars Molly Sims ("Starsky and Hutch"), Nikki Cox ("Nikki"), James Lesure ("For Your Love"), and Vanessa Marcil ("Beverly Hills, 90210").

Creator Gary Scott Thompson ("The Fast and the Furious" and the upcoming "88 Minutes" starring Al Pacino) serves as executive producer of "Las Vegas," along with Gardner Stern (NBC's "Law & Order," "NYPD Blue"), Justin Falvey ("Rescue Me") and Darryl Frank ("Rescue Me"). "Las Vegas" is from NBC Universal Television Studio and DreamWorks Television.
