B&B's Fictional Web Series "Room 8" To Launch As Real Online Show!

Now here’s a clever idea!  The Bold and the Beautiful’s fictional web series Room 8 which stars the characters of Carter and Maya is moving to the web for real!

And apparently it was in the plans all along when bringing former Guiding Light stars, Lawrence Saint-Victor (Carter)  and Karla Mosley (Maya) on to the canvas of the CBS soap.  As many fans know, Lawrence and Karla also created and starred in their own web series called Wed-Locked after CBS axed GL!

The version of Room 8 that will go to the web and launch on August 8th is the original vision of Rafael’s on B&B, before Caroline got her claws into the concept!  Fans can find it at Room8TheSeries.com!

According to TV Guide Magazine, Saint-Victor, who is writing and producing the online version of Room 8 with Mosley, related the back-story on how this all came about: “When we were hired at B&B, Brad Bell asked us a lot of questions about Wed-Locked — how we created it, how we shot it — and that in a way became the inspiration for Room 8!” 

Mosley added: “Brad gave us a lot of creative freedom with this. Like the version of Room 8 you’ve seen on B&B, this one starts with Lance and Scarlett meeting and moving in together, and Brad had a great idea for the final episode. So, basically, we were given the bookends and the rest was up to us.”

This is the first time a network soap has taken a story arc and turned it into a separate series for the Internet,” notes Mosley. “It’s a really exciting experiment and we’re eager to see how it’s received. The most wonderful thing about new media is that it’s new. The possibilities are endless!”

So what do you think of the concept of Room 8? Will you be checking out the series?  Comment below!

Michael, don’t forget that CBS already did a webseries that integrated storylines on THREE soap operas. Remember, it starred Amber from B&B and Y&R and also Alison Stewart from As the World Turns. Then Emily Stewart crossed over to Y&R as a part of this storyline. Really excited about Room 8, but surprised nobody is mentioning the first time they did this.

Kim Delaney on All My Children Primetime Reboot: “All They Have To Do Is Ask, and I’m There”

While Kim Delaney is currently appearing on General Hospital in the role of Jackie Templeton, and she just appeared in her new Lifetime movie, The Long Island Serial Killer: A Mother’s Hunt of Justice, the actress revealed she would be up for appearing in the upcoming primetime revival in development of All My Children.

Delaney became soap-famous in the role of AMC’s Jenny Gardner from 1981-1984 before she was killed-off the show in the now iconic jet ski explosion.

Now even though Jenny died, Kim would be up for figuring out how the character could be resurrected or how she could take part in the primetime reboot of the ABC soap opera called, Pine Valley.

In an interview with Soaps.com, Kim shared on being part of the reboot: “All they have to do is ask, and I’m there.  Sure, Jenny died, but someone asked me the other day if we ever saw her body. So maybe she’s out there, somewhere… ”

Former All My Children stars and real-life duo, Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos are executive producers of Pine Valley along with Andrew Stearn.

So, would you like to see an alive and well Jenny Gardner, or some other role for Delaney, in the All My Children reboot? Comment below.
