FOX Announces Premiere Dates for ‘LA to Vegas’ and ‘The Resident’

FOX is announcing premiere dates for new series “LA to Vegas” (Jan. 2) and “The Resident” (Jan. 21, following NFC Championship Game, and Jan. 22, in its time period premiere).

New comedy “LA to Vegas” will premiere on Tuesday, Jan. 2 (9:00-9:30 PM ET/PT) on FOX. From executive producers Will Ferrell (“Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy,” “Elf”), Adam McKay (“The Big Short”), Lon Zimmet (“Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt”), Chris Henchy (“Entourage,” “The Other Guys”), Owen Burke (“Drunk History”) and executive producer/director Steve Levitan (“Modern Family”), “LA to Vegas” is a workplace comedy about an airline crew and the eccentric passengers who, every weekend, take a no-frills roundtrip flight from Los Angeles to Las Vegas with one goal in mind – to come back a winner. The series stars Kim Matula (“UnREAL”), Ed Weeks (“The Mindy Project”), Nathan Lee Graham (“The Comeback,” “Hitch”) and Olivia Macklin (“The Young Pope”) with Peter Stormare (“The Big Lebowski”) and Emmy Award nominee and Golden Globe winner Dylan McDermott (“The Practice,” “American Horror Story”).

Starring Matt Czuchry (“The Good Wife”), Emily VanCamp (“Revenge”), Manish Dayal (“Halt and Catch Fire”), Moran Atias (“24: Legacy”), Merrin Dungey (“Big Little Lies”) and Shaunette Renée Wilson (“Billions”) with Melina Kanakaredes (“CSI: NY,” “Providence”) and Bruce Greenwood (“The People v.
