Former Proctor and Gamble soap divas Colleen Zenk (ex-Barbara, ATWT) and Crystal Chappell (ex-Olivia, GL; Danielle, B&B) are beginning new ventures in the web series world. Zenk stars as Agnes Snead in Thurston, a western featuring the frontier struggles of the American West. Created by Kathryn O'Sullivan, Thurston is currently in the midst of its second season
The Inn is the brainchild of Steve Silverman, (Pretty: The Series). The series follows Jane's (Chappell) arrival in a new town, where things might not be as they seem. Local diner owner Lola (soap legend Denise Alexander) advises Jane to speak with a man at The Inn, but fails to mention the dwelling's eerie vibe. The Inn premiered Feb. 4.
Chappell is a busy a woman on the web. She also produced and stars in The Grove, a pilot she's shopping for television. With the help of writer Paul Barber (21 Jump Street), The Grove centers on drama between two families, The Moynihans and The Kincaids.
The Grove boasts an all-star soap cast, including: Bob Woods (Bo, OLTL), Jessica Leccia (ex- Natalia, GL), Michelle Stafford (Phyllis, Y&R), Mark Hapka (ex-Nathan, DAYS), Peter Reckell (ex-Bo, DAYS), Linsey Godfrey (Caroline, B&B), Judi Evans (Adrienne, DAYS), Bobbie Eakes (ex-Krystal, AMC), Nadia Bjorlin (Chloe, DAYS), Christian LeBlanc (Michael, Y&R), Beth Maitland (Traci, Y&R), and Jordan Clarke (ex-Billy, GL).
