Fantastic and exclusive news today, Crystal Chappell fans!  The Daytime Emmy winner and creator and star of the hit web soap, Venice is tackling a brand new role on the web! Chappell has just signed on to play the lead in The Team!  The Team is a brand new dramatic web series written by Emily Hummel of Cedar Box Productions, and being filmed entirely on location in Shreveport, Louisiana.

Crystal will play the lead in the series, Payton Kelly!  Payton is a former police detective who is now working with an unlikely team of high operative agents who lend their various skills to solve crimes and provide protection for the friends and families of those who protect the U.S.

Casting is continuing for the other major roles in the series, and several daytime favorites are being seriously considered.   We hear The Team plans to launch in the fall with seven to ten webisodes for season one.  We will have more on The Team in the weeks and months ahead.

So what do you think of Crystal’s new role?  Let us know!

I luv the idea of Crystal being a cop. Can totally understand her taking on the role it take’s away the pressure of being all things that she has to be for Venice & the soon to be The Grove. Look forward to seeing it.

I am very happy. I just tweeted CC the other day asking her if she is missing not acting as much. This multi-talented lady & outstanding human being deserves all the goodness in the world. She makes other actors bring their “A” game in scenes with her, a master class. I am sure CC will find time to create & shoot more of her own webseries. Love her. Hugs

Sorry but I have ZERO interest in a web series of this kind. I can still watch (and enjoy) Law and Order: SVU, Criminal Minds, NCIS, NCIS LA, CSI, Bones, etc on prime time television. I have no interest or desire to see a web series in the same genre or format. This web series sounds very dull! The only way I watch any web series is if they have unique stories, and premises that I can’t watch already on daytime/primetime television. Count me out for this nonsense that will join the gazillion other boring web series out there.

As someone who has followed Crystal’s career for over 20 years, beginning with her first run on Days in the 90’s, I can say that she is one of the most talented and versatile actresses around.

Well, it’s about D–N time a series took an interest in the talented Crystal Chappell!! She’s a wonderful actress and will be an incredible asset to the show. I’m certain she will continue to entertain and inspire the viewing audience with her realistic portrayals of the human experience.

Sounds interesting. I’ll watch and hopefully it’ll be well written enough to keep my interest. I do love CC so I’m happy she’s working on other projects and not just Venice (which I do watch and love) I hope that this doesn’t delay another season of that show.
