THE BAY The Series Shoots TV Pilot

Mary Beth Evans, Kristos Andrews and Lilly Melgar in THE BAY.
Emmy-nominated and Indie Soap Award-winning THE BAY The Series is back! Creator Gregori J. Martin tells We Love Soaps the show just wrapped production on a one-hour pilot that Associated Television International (ATI) will be shopping to cable TV networks.

There were some exciting changes this time around that should help make the show hotter than ever.

The story takes place three years in the future. If you watched the first two seasons of THE BAY web series, you'll be familiar with some of the characters but you won't need to have watched in order to follow the pilot. It's a re-introduction to the show and its stories.

Many fan favorites will be returning including Mary Beth Evans (Sara), Tristan Rogers (Lex), Kristos Andrews (Peter), Matthew Ashford (Steve), Lilly Melgar (Janice), Nicolas Coster (Jack), Jackie Zeman (Sofia), Camden Toy (Igor) and Taylor Stanley (Zoey).

Martin reveals the pilot is upping the level of sexiness, and it looks like one of the sexiest men in Bay City, Matthew Johnson (the gay nurse played by Thor Knai), will get in on the action. Look for the hunky Erik Fellows to be involved in that!

One new addition to the cast we can reveal is Carlo Mendez, who fans might remember as Juan from Robert Townsend's Indie Soap Award-winning drama DIARY OF A SINGLE MOM.

Martha Madison, who played Marly during the first two seasons, was added as a script writer.

A number of talented people were added behind the scenes as the show used the multi-camera format for the first time. Former ALL MY CHILDREN executive producer Julie Hanan Carruthers consulted on the production; Nadine Aronson (ALL MY CHILDREN) was the supervising producer; and Anthony Pascarelli (THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL) was producer/AD.  There were also others and their many years of production experience have taken the show to a new level.

We can't reveal anything else about the storylines yet but let's just say life in Bay City will never be the same.

Look for more information in the coming months as the show works to sell the pilot.
