Bob Lowry (Huff) and Hugh Jackman have teamed up for the new drama, Viva Blackpool on CBS for Sony Pictures TV and BBC Worldwide.

Based on the BBC's successful miniseries, the story is about Ripley Holden, a sleazy but charismatic low-end casino owner whose dream is to cash in and open a five-star mega-resort on the Las Vegas Strip. The Hollywood Reporter says like the BBC series, the CBS version will have a murder mystery at its center and will feature the cast bursting into song-and-dance numbers.

No word on an air date for Viva Blackpool.
