Otalia fans can rejoice as Crystal Chappell’s (ex-Olivia, Guiding Light) webseries Venice will debut this week at www.venicetheseries.com! There will be a number of familiar daytime faces donating their talents to the web series, including sizzling hot sexpot Nadia Bjorlin (Chloe, DAYS). Nadia will play Lara who will be giving Crystal a run for her money as they both vie for the attention of Jessica Leccia’s (ex-Natalia, Guiding Light) character, Ani. The preview for Venice is back up on Youtube (below) after being mysteriously pulled off for a few weeks, and if the series can produce the same quality that is present in the preview than we have good things to look forward to. With their limited budget and the cheesey potential at an ultra high, Venice could easily turn out to be a queer bust. Luckily, with Ms. Chappell’s resourcefulness and attention to her fanbase it seems Otalia fans are in for a treat and Venice may well be paving the way for new and innovative approaches to keep the soap opera genre alive! Kudos to Soap Opera Digest for showing their support for Venice as they featured an inside scoop on the series this week, and voted Otalia as best couple in their annual Best and Worst issue! Show some love this week and take a trip to Venice!
