Melrose Place meets Bay City when LANY Entertainment’s Emmy winning drama series THE BAY begins shooting its much anticipated Season 4 later this week. Joining the iconic cast is Vanessa Williams, best known for her roles as ‘Rhonda Blair’ on Melrose Place and as ‘Maxine Chadway’ on the Showtime cable television series Soul Food. Also joining the cast is Melrose Place veteran Thomas Calabro, noted for his role as ‘Dr. Michael Mancini’ in all nine seasons and its reboot, who is also recognized as ‘Mr. Puckman’ on FOX Network’s hit television series Glee.
Appearing in the Season 4 premiere of of THE BAY, Williams plays the role of the Garrett’s crafty attorney Cleo Harris, a character who delivers life altering news to matriarch Sara Garrett’s (Mary Beth Evans) worried son Pete (Kristos Andrews). Calabro will make his first appearance in THE BAY’s mid-season finale as the surprising ‘Mystery Man’- a character who threatens to throw a kink in an otherwise open and shut case.
“Melrose Place was one of the most iconic primetime soaps on television and was known for its jaw-dropping scandals,” stated THE BAY’s creator, writer, and Emmy-winning executive producer Gregori J. Martin. “Considering the mayhem that’s currently happening in Bay City, Vanessa and Thomas make the perfect additions to our amazing cast.”
