From THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL To The Web: ROOM 8 To Become a Real Web Series

CBS is bringing THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL's fictional web series, ROOM 8, to life as a real online series, according to TV Guide Magazine. ROOM 8 will premiere on August 8 at Room8TheSeries.com.

The eight-episode project will star B&B's Karla Mosley (Maya) and Lawrence Saint-Victor (Carter), once again in the roles of Lance and Scarlett.

"This is Rafael's original vision for Room 8 — the one that would have been filmed if Caroline Spencer hadn't gotten involved and started changing it up to make Rick jealous," says Saint-Victor, who is writing and producing the online version with Mosley..

Saint-Victor and Mosley created and starred in their own online series, WED-LOCKED, in 2009, earning an Indie Soap Award nomination for their work.

ROOM 8 joins a list of web series based on soap arcs including L.A. DIARIES (starring Y&R's Amber and ATWT's Alison) in 2007, and THE LAW (starring GUIDING LIGHT's Frank, Gus, Marina and Mallet) in 2006-2007.

Check out a preview of ROOM 8 below.



The ROOM 8 cast also include Sean Whalen as wacky landlord Randy, Deborah S. Craig as Scarlett's BFF Missy and Ross Kiddor as Lance's gamer pal Dex. The entire series was shot in one day on the B&B soundstage using the show's production crew.
