The seedy side of Vegas

I’m working with a British TV program that will be in town from mid-July to early August. They’re interested in the seedier side of Las Vegas—drugs, prostitution, homelessness, etc.—and stories related to the economy. For example, the costumed characters on the Strip and Fremont Street or squatters in foreclosed homes. They’re also interested in meeting unique Vegas characters who can serve as guides (e.g., Oscar Goodman to introduce the city or Linda Lera-Randle El to introduce the world of the homeless). While the show may sound dark, it also hopes to highlight success stories and people who are trying to make a difference in the community.

If you have any story ideas or character suggestions, please let me know. Thanks!
