THE BAY sets its sites to join scripted Daytime Drama
"It's no secret that I've always had a passion for quality scripted daytime drama," states Gregori J. Martin, Executive Producer and creator of the Emmy-nominated serial drama THE BAY. "The importance of scripted daytime drama can't be overly emphasized. This is the genre that ushered in the new era of television in the 1950's, and is the same genre that is now ushering in a new era on a new platform - the internet. I am excited to say that as THE BAY advances to a new level in Season 3, we plan to bring scripted daytime drama back to the forefront."
As LANY Entertainment, in association with LocoDistro and Associated Television International (ATI), makes plans for a bigger and better Season 3 online and/or on television, it's the action taking place behind the camera that will determine when viewers are once again treated to the high-stakes drama Bay City is known for. It's a classic example of good things coming to those who wait.
"Season 3 of THE BAY promises to be the best one yet," Martin continues. "We're currently in the position where we must wait to take our next step. Though we can't give a premiere date yet, we're thrilled to announce that all of your favorite daytime veterans will be returning. We'll have a bigger budget to work with, our production values will be higher, with better location shoots, and more. Not only will our fans have all their favorites return, but the show as a whole will look and feel even better."
Concerning the behind the camera action, LocoDistro's Chief Creative Officer and an Executive Producer of THE BAY Gabriel Gornell adds, "It's an essential time for daytime dramas—and it's important that new dramas born on the web, like THE BAY, continue to push both creative and production values year after year. Basically, if daytime dramas are to thrive across new media platforms, it's essential they provide an equal or better viewing experience to what fans have grown accustomed to in broadcast."
Jim Romanovich, ATI's president of worldwide media and entertainment, concurs, "Given the past success and scope of THE BAY, I agree we must take our time so that the quality of the production itself is everything we expect it to be and more. Season 3 of THE BAY will be bigger and better, but in order for us to bring that quality of work to the table, production should only begin when all of these elements are in place."
Gregori J. Martin concludes, "I'm both thrilled and grateful for Gabriel and Jim's dedication and enthusiasm for the success of our show. It's a very exciting time for THE BAY!"
Originally anticipated to premiere in early November, the THE BAY Season 3 debut will be delayed until further notice, the date TBA. Until then, fans can enjoy past episodes and other perks at www.thebaytheseries.com
