With a new year comes new shows, including FOX’s new ensemble comedy, LA to Vegas. The new series, which is executive produced by Will Ferrell, follows a flight crew on Jackpot Airlines, which flies from LA to Vegas and back again. But is LA to Vegas based on a true story? Well, not exactly.
Although the show doesn’t seem to be based on an actual flight crew or carrier airline, the idea for the show probably did come from the fact that flights like this do exist. For example, Spirit Airlines prides itself on being “the leading Ultra Low Cost Carrier in the United States.” Through Spirit you can get a roundtrip ticket from Los Angeles to Vegas for just $79. While it hasn’t yet been stated how much that flight costs on LA to Vegas, it definitely seem to fall into the realm of a cheap flight that the show is based around. Besides that though, it appears LA to Vegas is its own show and isn’t based on any true events.
The new series, which is also executive produced by Adam McKay (The Big Short), Lon Zimmet (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt), and Steve Levitan (Modern Family), stars Kim Matula as Ronnie, a long suffering flight attendant who is so over working for Jackpot Airlines.
