If you've been on the edge of your seat, following all the latest drama in Days of our Lives' Salem, wait until you jump into the latest project by the series' executive producer, Ken Corday.
The longtime soap exec has teamed with daytime alum Kyle Lowder (ex-Brady Black; ex-Rick Forrester, The Bold and the Beautiful) and Emmy-nominated Winterthorne star Michael Caruso to bring Corday's book Ladies of the Lake to the screen.
Produced by Caruso (under his company Michael and Barbara Caruso Productions) and directed by two-time Emmy winner Sonia Blangiardo (who's directed and produced shows like All My Children, One Life to Live, Guiding Light, and DAYS), Ladies of the Lake tells the story of four wealthy wives living in the exclusive gated community of Avalon. When their abusive husbands begin to turn up dead, Detective Shawn Daniels (Lowder) launches an investigation, only to discover the many secrets hidden beneath the glossy veneers of Avalon.
The script was penned by Caruso, adapted from the novel written by Ken Corday.
"Ken has been behind us since day one, giving us the freedom and creative control to adapt his novel. He has been incredibly generous throughout the entire process and working alongside Kyle on this has been extraordinary. We are pulling out all the stops to whip up a really fun ride for the audience," says Caruso.
Says Lowder: "Bringing Ken Corday's novel to life is something that I wanted to do from the first time I read it. To have the opportunity to work with Michael Caruso and all the talent involved, both in front of and behind the camera, is truly inspiring."
Corday adds: "When Kyle and Michael unveiled their vision for transforming Ladies of the Lake into digital episodes, I was delighted. Our creative collaboration is a burst of fresh energy which stays true to the original story and also introduces these beautiful, intelligent, complex women to a broader audience."
Production on Ladies of the Lake begins this month, with several more stars scheduled to be announced next week. For more information, visit the series' official website.
