U.S. cable network TLC has commissioned a reality series from Evolution Media (The Real Housewives of Orange County) about five female movers and shakers in Las Vegas.

Tentatively due to premiere in December, Vegas High Rollers (working title) promises to explore the high-powered cast’s personal and professional lives with equal amounts of grit and over-the-top opulence. The cast features the head of a luxury clothing brand, an entertainment reporter, the daughter of a reputed mob boss and her “colorful” mother, the owner of a high-end cosmetics line, and a woman regarded as one of the city’s top poker players.

The network has ordered eight hour-long episodes of the series. Executive producers are Douglas Ross, Greg Stewart, Kathleen French, Alex Baskin, Chaz Gray, and Ross McCall.
