CBS has announced, “Room 8,” the fictional web series currently featured on the network’s “The Bold And The Beautiful,” will become an online series.
The network ordered eight episodes that will star “The Bold And The Beautiful” alums Lawrence Saint-Victor and Karla Mosley. The show follows Lance and Scarlett, two attractive up-and-comers who can’t stand each other, yet unknowingly rent the same apartment trying to make things work.
“This is the first time a network soap has taken a story arc and turned it into a separate series for the Internet,” said Mosley, who is writing and producing with Saint-Victor. “It’s a really exciting experiment and we’re eager to see how it’s received. The most wonderful thing about new media is that it’s new. The possibilities are endless!”
This isn’t the first time the two actors will work together, they played opposite each other on CBS’s “Guiding Light” before it was canceled. Then pair then created their own web series, “Wed-Locked.”
“Room 8” premieres August 8th exclusively at “Room8TheSeries.com.”
