WE LOVE SOAPS: Wendy Riche Joins 'The Bay' as Executive Consultant
April has been a very good month for digital drama The Bay. Series star Lilly Melgar, who plays the troubled Janice Ramos, was named Best Lead Actress at the 7th Annual Indie Series Awards. Guest star Kym Whitley also took home a crystal award that night, as the show celebrated its 11 nominations. On Friday night, The Bay was named Outstanding Digital Daytime Drama Series at the 43rd Annual Daytime Creative Arts Emmy Awards ceremony, receiving that honor for the second year in a row. Four of the show's actors were nominated for their performances as well, with Mary Beth Evans (Sara Garrett) and Kristos Andrews (Peter Garrett) taking home the gold. Earlier in the week, producers hosted a star-studded celebration of the show's recent successes, and that now includes the addition of five-time Emmy-winning producer Wendy Riche to the team.
