FAR FROM THE BAY airing June 23rd
Creator of THE BAY, Gregori J. Martin, and LANYfilms Productions announce the premiere of FAR FROM THE BAY, a spin-off and prequel of Season Two, to begin streaming on the web this Thursday, June 23rd at 3:15 PM ET / 12:15 PM PT. Viewers will follow Peter (Kristos Andrews, X GAMES CHAMPION and Guinness World Record Holder), the youngest son of Sara Garrett (Mary Beth Evans, DAYS, ATWT, GH), on his quest to find the woman he believes to be his mother. Shot on location in New York City, Peter retraces the steps of his cruel childhood in an attempt to find Claire Andrews (Marie Wilson, ATWT, PC), his adoptive mother who raised him until the age of seven. With no memory of his recent past, Peter encounters members of his adoptive family, as well as those of his biological family, who are stunned by his misguided determination and jaded memories. Along the way, chance encounters with eccentric strangers offer him insight in dealing with his troubled past and arcane present. ‘FAR FROM THE BAY’ is an eight part web series featuring the talents of Ilene Kristen and Tonya Walker (OLTL), Agim Kaba (ATWT), Miriam Colon (SCARFACE, GL), Emmy winner Anna Holbrook (ANOTHER WORLD), and more. With the first ever web soap crossovers from Michael O’Leary of ‘STEAMBOAT’ and Afton Boggiano of ‘EMPIRE‘, musical performer and reggae artist, IFA (Godson of Bob Marley), will also be featured. The upcoming prequel, FAR FROM THE BAY, as well as Season One of the THE BAY The Series, can be seen online at Blip.TV and our official website at www.thebaytheseries.com.
