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.

Melissa Reeves Talks On DAYS Time-Jump; Paul Telfer & Eric Martsolf Chat Between Their Scenes On ‘Inside Salem’ Podcast

On the latest episode of NBC’s Inside Salem: Days of our Lives Podcast, the special guest is enduring DAYS star, Melissa Reeves (Jennifer), who found herself as the catalyst for the year time-jump and flash-forward that fans are now watching play out on the daytime drama series.

Last week, Jennifer was pushed off a balcony following her wedding to Jack by Princess Gina.  And on last Friday’s cliffhanger, Jennifer woke up out of a coma to learn from Jack that she has been asleep for a year.

Now with a year having passed in Salem, Jennifer learns bits of information of what has happened to her loved ones.  Meanwhile, Eve is in lock-up for the crime against Jennifer, and it appears Jennifer cannot put the pieces together of who pushed her on that fateful night to clear Eve.

In addition during the podcast, Melissa chats with host Michael Fairman on the passing of John Clarke (Ex-Mickey), and being one of the core characters tied to the legacy of the Hortons – the first family of Salem.

As to the initial reaction to the time-jump, Melissa reveals that the entire cast was very excited, but all the pressure of the attention to detail was discussed with make-up, hair, and in the writing and production.

Later, Paul Telfer and Eric Martsolf have a little hang out discussion in between scenes, that is often hilarious when you can imagine getting Xander and Brady, and their real-life portrayers, Paul and Eric, in the same room in front of a microphone.
