About The Bay

LANY Entertainment

Centering around the town's elite, THE BAY follows the privileged, yet dysfunctional Bay City residents whose lives are riddled with sex, lies and scandals. Socialite Sara Garrett (MARY BETH EVANS), her youngest son Peter (KRISTOS ANDREWS), and those around them face a series of dilemmas that involve rape, blackmail, sordid lovers, and vindictive arch rivals. Whether by choice or necessity, the town’s privileged become entangled with those who confuse obsession for love and power for success. With an impressive cast of iconic Daytime and Primetime television stars and stunning cinematography, THE BAY raises the bar for dramatic serialized storytelling. Consistent in conveying conflict and resolution, storylines deliver substance and balance while brought to life by actors who love the craft. The stories, combined with their talents, succeed in captivating the viewer's emotions and devotion. Produced on a budget considered less than 'shoe-string', THE BAY has surpassed expectations and succeeded in garnering a large and dedicated fan base.
