First Presenters Revealed For 3rd Annual Indie Soap Awards

"2012: The Year of the Soap" continues as we announce the first wave of presenters for the 3rd Annual Indie Soap Awards, to take place Tuesday, February 21 at New World Stages in New York City's Theater District.

These first twelve are all Indie Soap Award nominees - which is not to say that's the only reason we've chosen them. For example, one of the young men is also an X-Games champion with multiple entries in The Guinness Book of World Records. A certain young woman will make her next appearance on THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS January 17, possibly demonstrating some of those crazy handgun (.22, .357, .40 & 9mm), knife and Krav Maga skills. And of course, there's the talented actress who also happens to be a registered nurse!... we could go on and on!

On February 21, however, we focus on one genre: the serialized web series, or indie soap. And so, without further ado, our first 13 presenters, and the outstanding indie soap they represent.

Kristos Andrews (THE BAY)
Jodi Britton (SUNDAYS)
Michael Caruso (DEVANITY)
John Colella (VAMPIRE MOB)
Jillian Clare (MISS BEHAVE)
Patrika Darbo (MISS BEHAVE)
Dee Freeman (PRETTY)
Sid Garza-Hillman (SUNDAYS)
Michael Taylor Gray (PRETTY)
Stacy McQueen (PRETTY)
Forrest Naylor (SUNDAYS)

"We couldn't be more thrilled with the excitement this year's ceremony has generated so far," said We Love Soaps founder Roger Newcomb. "This first wave of Award presenters could not be more fascinating, talented, and emblematic of the Indie Soap world, and we can't wait to reveal more exciting news about the ISA's very soon."
