Genie Francis To Guest Star On Current TV's BAR KARMA

Jonathan Frakes, best known for his portrayal of Commander William T. Riker on STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION, will be directing his wife Genie Francis, Laura Spencer from GENERAL HOSPITAL, on episode 9 of Current TV’s BAR KARMA, the world’s first community-developed television series which airs on Friday nights at 10 p.m. ET/9 Central.

The two storylines BAR KARMA is looking for viewers to explore further for this episode center around a woman, in the present day, who either has multiple personalities, or she’s a twin. In previous roles, Genie Francis has accidentally killed a few people, suffered a mental breakdown and been in a catatonic state. What will her character be up to in BAR KARMA? And what is her karma dilemma? That's up to you to decide by submitting your pitches on "The Woman with Multiple Personalities" or "The Twin" through Monday, February 21. The episode will air on Current TV in early April. Viewers can contribute to other episodes by logging onto, through social networking sites including Facebook and Twitter or through free iPhone, iPad and Android apps to submit story ideas.

BAR KARMA, the first series to give viewers control of the show content before it hits air, was created by game creator Will Wright (The Sims/Sim City) and Worldwide Biggies CEO Albie Hecht. Set at a mystical watering hole at the edge of the universe, BAR KARMA stars William Sanderson (TRUE BLOOD; LOST; DEADWOOD) as James, the 20,000 year-old bartender, Matthew Humphreys (BIG LOVE) as bar owner Doug Jones, and Cassie Howarth (DERANGED HIGH) as the lone waitress, Dayna. The series answers the age-old question: “What would happen if you could change your fate?” Set in a time traveling bar owned and operated by members of the mysterious organization Karma, Inc., each weekly episode follows a new bar patron as they enter at happy hour and must make a life-changing…and possibly world-saving …decision.
