Closure for Las Vegas television show fans?

As you know, the tv show Las Vegas was summarily canceled by NBC. Leaving the program's fans with a massive cliffhanger. What happened to the baby?!? Just like Moonlight fans, they have been campaigning to get their series picked up. Matt Mitovich, from TV Guide, spoke to Gary Scott Thompson (creator of the show). He published news today about a possible return & closure for Las Vegas fans.

I'm sharing this info with you because it illustrates the potential when fans continue to support their show. We've all read articles declaring that Las Vegas is "dead".... no chance of it being revived.... it's over.... that Josh Duhamel won't return to doing tv work now.... he's on to bigger & better things.... etc etc. Sound familiar? The producers and studios simply want to make money. Show them that big revenue can still be made with a project and they are interested.

Good luck & best wishes to the Las Vegas fans :) XO ~ Kandye

Today's News: Our Take

Exclusive: Vegas Boss "Actively Trying" for Closure
by Matt Webb Mitovich

Right now, Gary Scott Thompson, as the show runner for NBC's Knight Rider series (premiering Sept. 24), is focused on turning K.I.T.T. into an even leaner, meaner crimefighting machine. But sharing some bandwith with that mission is the idea of giving closure to the Las Vegas fans who saw their series hurried off the air as a casualty of the WGA strike. Has the ship sailed as far as hope for that goes? "I don’t think so, as far as myself and some of the cast members are concerned," Thompson told me during a detour from an in-depth look at the new Knight Rider. "We're actively trying to figure out how to do something."

Thompson says that Josh Duhamel and Molly Sims are particularly interested in spelling out what became of Danny, Delinda and their baby. "I talked to them both the other day, and they said we should do something. It was their characters that were really left hanging, and they were very upset by it."

While one possible fix would find Thompson, Duhamel and Sims simply appearing together in an online video to explain what was next, another solution would build on previous buzz about a fleeting Knight Rider cameo by the new parents. Thompson, though, would rather write the Vegas characters into an entire episode of his new baby.

"It's not impossible, because in the original [Knight Rider], Las Vegas is where one of the headquarters is," Thompson notes. "But pulling together all those people, working out the schedules.... I mean, Josh is a bona fide movie star now. But if we ever did it, it would have to entail the entire episode and answer a lot of questions." — Matt Mitovich

Wow, I'm just marginally starting to deal with the "death" of MOONLIGHT and now there's this post about Las Vegas and what it could kinda, sorta, maybe, mean for MOONLIGHT? Be still my heart....
