When life gives you lemons, you’re supposed to make lemonade. But when former “All My Children” actors Debbie Morgan (ex-Angie Hubbard) and Ricky Paull Goldin (ex-Jake Martin, “AMC;” ex-Jesse Torres, “The Bold and the Beautiful;” ex-Gus Aitoro, “Guiding Light;” Andrew Miller, “Beacon Hill”) were given the very lemon-esque news that their sudser had been cancelled, they decided to make much more than lemonade: They paired up to executive produce an MTV special!
Previously we reported that upcoming web series “Beacon Hill” would utilize a viewer subscription-based service, in lieu of generating revenue through advertisements. Now we have more information on how the subscription service will work for viewers wishing to watch the soap when it debuts in three weeks.
According to the official “Beacon Hill” Facebook page, all 12 ad-free episodes of the first season will be available on www.beaconhilltheseries.com for $9.99. The premiere episode will debut online on March 5, with one new episode being put online each Wednesday after that. Viewers can subscribe at any time, with all previous episodes made available to them after paying the subscription fee. All major credit cards and Paypal will be accepted.
We’re just under 30 days away from the debut of new web series “Beacon Hill” and yesterday Open Book Productions/Bella Productions released a new trailer to get the anticipation rising. It turns out not everything is what it seems in Massachusetts politics!
In the new trailer, we get a closer look at Alicia Minshew’s (ex-Kendall, “All My Children”) reporter character Sara Preston. She’s returned home to Boston after her Senator grandfather has a stroke that paralyzes half of his body. But is Sara there to visit her ailing grandfather or has she been sent there to report on her family? We also catch a glimpse of Sara’s mother Claire, played by Crystal Chappell (ex-Carly, “Days of Our Lives.”) What’s in the envelope? And why the need to be discreet about it?
We’ve been hearing a lot about the talented cast that Open Book Productions and Bella Productions have assembled for “Beacon Hill” (see above), but this week we finally learned how viewers will be able to watch the show when it premieres Wednesday, March 5!
According to an official “Beacon Hill” press release, the show will be available to stream on BeaconHillTheSeries.com via a subscription-based service. For $9.99, viewers will have access to all 12 episodes from the upcoming first season.
Bella Book Productions and Open Books Productions announced today that former “Days of our Lives” and “General Hospital” actress, Sarah Joy Brown, has joined the cast of the webs series “Beacon Hill,” which follows the political world in Boston, Massachusetts. Filming is set to begin later this fall in and around Boston.
