If you've been anxiously awaiting additional details about the soap star-studded Ladies of the Lake series, your wait is over. The series will premiere on Amazon in mid-May.
Ladies of the Lake is an adaptation of the book written by Days of our Lives' executive producer Ken Corday. The book is brought to life by Emmy-nominated producer Michael Caruso and directed by two-time Emmy winner Sonia Blangiardo (Tainted Dreams). Caruso also serves as executive producer on the project alongside daytime alum Kyle Lowder (ex-Brady Black; ex-Rick Forrester, The Bold and the Beautiful), who is also part of the on-screen cast.
Ladies of the Lake is billed as a glossy, limited-run summer series that tells the story of the glamorous residents of the Southern California community of Avalon and the dark secrets they hide behind their perfect façades.
"It's pure glamour," Caruso explained in a statement. "The novel is the kind of fun poolside read that people crave, and when Ken permitted Kyle and I to adapt his novel we thought that the digital medium would be perfect for binge watching, which is why Amazon is the ideal home for Ladies of the Lake."
Ladies of the Lake stars three-time Emmy nominee Arianne Zucker (Nicole Walker, DAYS), two-time Emmy nominee Lilly Melgar (ex-Lily Rivera, General Hospital), Emmy nominee Martha Madison (Belle Black, DAYS), Marie Wilson (ex-Meg Snyder, As the World Turns; ex-Karen Wexler, Port Charles and GH), Jessica Morris (ex-Jennifer Rappaport, One Life to Live), and Primetime Emmy winner Patrika Darbo (Shirley Spectra, B&B; Nancy Wesley, DAYS).
"Bringing Ken Corday's story to life was one of the most exhilarating and rewarding experiences of my career," Lowder, who plays Detective Shawn Daniels, added. "There's a little something for everyone. Mystery, romance, drama, and a visual feast that brings the over the top lifestyles of SO-Cal to life."
Caruso adapted the script from Corday's novel, which was released in 2015. If you'd like to check out the book, you can buy it here.
"When Kyle and Michael unveiled their vision for transforming Ladies of the Lake into digital episodes, I was delighted," Corday said. "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."
Mark your calendars for May 15. That's the day all four parts of the Ladies of the Lake series will be released exclusively on Amazon and Amazon Prime.
