From Michael Caruso, writer/producer of Emmy nominated web-series DeVanity and Witherthorne, comes another decadent and sumptuous mini-series to thrill fans of the prime-time soap genre.
Based on the hit book of the same name by daytime soap producer Ken Corday (Days of Our Lives) Ladies of the Lake Michael Caruso has created another hit for the decades.
Ladies of the Lake tells the story of the rich and powerful women of Avalon, a gated community on the West Coast, as they show their strength of will over the men in their life. Over four episodes we get to know the 'Ladies' as their stories intertwine and secrets are revealed.
Once again Caruso brings together a plethora of daytime soap stars from everyone's favourite sudsy serials (including Martha Madison, Lily Melgar, Marie Wilson, Arianne Zucker, Patrika Darbo, Kyle Lowder, Gordon Thomson, Wally Kurth and Ian Buchanan) and utilises them to their potential that writers of daytime often fail to do.
As with all of Michael's work the cinematography and direction (Rodolphe Portier and Sonia Blandigaro) is up there with the most lavish prime-time series (for a fraction of the budget).
A big shout out must also go out for Jillian Clare who is truly captivating as Cassidy Montgomery.
Here's looking forward to seeing more of the Ladies in the future.
