UPI News Service, 10/12/2010
Four episodes of the TV chat show "Live! with Regis and Kelly" are to be taped in Las Vegas next month, ABC said Tuesday.
The program is to be taped at the Encore Theater in the Wynn Las Vegas Five Star, Five Diamond resort during the week of Nov. 29.
In addition to welcoming celebrity guests, Regis Philbin and Kelly Ripa will venture into Las Vegas, showcasing its stage shows, attractions, food and nightlife, the network said.
"Las Vegas offers exactly what we look for when we take 'Live' on the road -- color, excitement, extraordinary talent -- and last year we found Wynn Las Vegas to be a perfect setting for the show," Executive Producer Michael Gelman said in a statement. "We're looking forward to coming back in November -- there's a lot more of Vegas to be explored."
"Regis, Kelly and Gelman are back for the second time and it sort of feels like family to us now. The show is great fun, has loads of excitement, and speaking for myself, I love it!" resort owner Steve Wynn said.
