LADIES OF THE LAKE Soap Star Cast Revealed!

A who’s who of soap opera has joined the Ken Corday (EP, DAYS) novel come-to-life online series Ladies of the Lake. Executive producer Michael Caruso and co-executive producer and series star, Kyle Lowder, announced today the cast that will appear in the project.

Ladies of the Lake, tells the story of four wealthy wives living in the exclusive gated community of Avalon.  When their abusive husbands begin to turn up dead, Detective Shawn Daniels (Lowder) launches an investigation, only to discover the many secrets hidden beneath the glossy veneers of Avalon. The script was penned by Caruso, adapted from a novel written by Ken Corday and is being produced through Michael & Barbara Caruso Productions.

Portraying the four mysterious ladies are:  Emmy nominee Martha Madison, in the role of Vivian Montgomery, an intellectual business woman who gave up her career to support her husband, Emmy winner Lilly Melgar as Angelica Louis, the quintessential Hollywood Wife with a tragic past, Marie Wilson as Morgan Firestone, a former pageant queen who became the face of her husband’s shipping empire and Jessica Morris who portrays Crystal Amhurst, a barren trophy wife who will do anything to keep her husbands attention.

The talented female leads will be joined by a distinguished group of thesps playing their ill-fated husbands including: Emmy winners Wally Kurth, in the role of Hudson Montgomery, a tech giant with a wandering eye and Ian Buchanan as Alphonse Louis, a B List movie star who will stop at nothing to land the next part.  Golden Globe nominee Gordon Thomson will be seen as Sheraton Firestone, a shipping magnate whose ruthlessness is unwavering cements when protecting his business empire, and John-Paul Lavoisier will be portraying Jonathan Amhurst, the trust fund millionaire with an inexhaustible sexual appetite.

Three-time Emmy nominee Arianne Zucker is set to star as Clara, an investigative journalist hell bent on revenge with hidden ties to Hudson Montgomery, while Jillian Clare is playing Cassidy Montgomery, the Queen Bee of the Ladies of the Lake children. Also joining the illustrious cast is Emmy nominee Patrika Darbo as Dorothy Nolan, a woman with a sordid past hiding behind the resident golf pro and soap veteran John Callahan as Tommy Nolan, her Avalon Golf Pro husband whose get rich quick schemes are finally catching up to him.

The series to be directed by Emmy-winner Sonia Blangiardo will begin filming next month, and it is set to bow in late summer. . For updates, visit www.ladiesofthelakeseries.com and follow @LOTLSERIES1 on Twitter.

A very white cast. This would have been a great opportunity to bring in diversity.

I was so amused by some of the characters they described and the sighting of Edmond from AMC- whom I have not seen in years- you are right and hope maybe they read these and make some corrections- although nobody says that about Empire-

These comments are monitored. Yet everyday you are on here as the authority on soaps- and make offensive comments about gays and want your all-white characters and are utterly offensive and if this is to inspire a conversation it is not one I will be a part of ever again.

I got your back, Helen. I saw the post and now it gone but many more and no more fun on here time to go cause I dont play the hater game and you cant even ask a damn question on here without getting your head ripped off or told you are stupid

Well DYLAN, if soaps (in any medium) don’t expand their viewer base they will soon become a thing of the past. The only way to bring in new viewers in mass is to actually have characters that mirror the viewing population. That means black, Asian, Hispanic, white, gay, trans, etc., etc. I rarely read the comments, so I have no idea if what Helen says about you is true. If it is, you really ought to get used to the idea that this is the 21st century. It’ll be here for a awhile.

Well it could be interesting and who knows how much longer Days of Our Lives can survive (sorry but right now it’s pretty awful – that’s just my opinion) as an On-air
broadcast production.
So it would be nice to have a “back-up” show to get a soap fix.

Yeah at the rate Days is going this is a good idea for people to get their Days fix.

Still, I’ll take Days on a bad day than no Days at all. I still miss As the World Turns and the rich characters and families. I also miss AMC and OLTL. So sad they are gone and will just enjoy Days any day.

I understand Mollie many of us still miss both All My Children and One Life to Live. Some of the storylines lately on Days of our Lives have been awful (John’s kidnapping, the Lo Mein character, etc.) but lately it has shown improvement (has Ben returned or is it just in Abby’s imagination) so I hope it continues on it’s upward swing with the new writing team.

Very interesting. I am wondering thou, should just always assume that any new project like this is an online show and won’t be on TV broadcast?

scott

so let me get this straight? Ken Corday is working on this project and not trying to fix all that is wrong with Days….his parent’s must be really proud of their legacy…..wow, unbelievable…it’s like they want Days to fail…..so sad for Salem and it’s 51st year…..

Ken Corday is thinking outside the soap box.Maybe as a backup plan just in case Days doesn’t get renewed for another year.

Dylan

Scott, his parents are dead. So, they are neither proud or non proud. They are dead. Love him or hate him, I think Ken tries his best to keep DAYS alive. I truly hope the switch to a less forward schedule will make a LOT of difference!!

I would say they are using an old photo of John.

And John-Paul has cut his hair.

I don’t like the photo they have of Arianne. She looks mad.

Daytime fans remember him fondly as the son of Jesse (Darnell Williams) and Angie Hubbard (Debbi Morgan), Frankie, on All My Children.  And now, actor Cornelius Smith Jr., is set to join a major limited series based on the acclaimed nonfiction book by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Sheri Fink, about the the first five days following Hurricane Katrina made landfall entitled Five Days at Memorial.

Written by John Ridley and Carlton Cruse, Smith will play a doctor, (something he is very familiar with playing since Frankie Hubbard was a doctor in Pine Valley!) named Dr. Bryant King, an internist and one of the few doctors of color at the hospital, who finds himself very much in the middle of the crisis.  He will headline the show alongside Vera Farmiga and Adepero Oduye.

The series will stream on Apple TV+, and no word yet as to when it will have its debut following its filming.

 

Since his time on All My Children, Smith has appeared on ABC’s Scandal, and had recurring roles on God Friended MeSelf Made: Inspired by the Life of Madam C.J. Walker and Manhunt.

Deadline broke the casting news.
