Reality TV meets Casino
Mark Burnett, the reality show guru behind Survivor and The Apprentice has announced the airing dates for his brand news show The Casino.
The new show takes its cameras inside the Las Vegas gambling industry, with the focus on America's youngest casino owners Timothy Poster and Thomas Breitling as they learn the ropes as casino operators. Poster and Breitling, who made their fortunes from founding Travelscape.com and later selling it to Expedia.com, four years ago.
Casino will cover the daily lives of the 34-year-old self made millionaires as they run their operations, under the spotlight of hundreds of cameras and millions of TV viewers in the gambling capital of the world: Las Vegas.
‘You're absolutely going to have the adrenaline rush of entering the casino for the first time. Being the new owners you'll see who comes in and you'll see real-life casino action with millions of dollars changing hands. If you look at some of the other (reality) shows, sometimes it's hard to relate to the people, he said. But everyone can relate to a wager or casino action ... and we’re right there to witness it,’ claims Breitling, the co-star of the new reality TV show.
The Casino is scheduled to premiere on June 14 on the Fox Network.
