GRB Entertainment has acquired the Emmy Award-winning drama series The Bay, which it is launching to the global market at MIPCOM.
The Bay centers on the affluent yet dysfunctional residents of a posh seaside town that is cursed by a political figure who was allegedly murdered by his socialite granddaughter. It stars Ronn Moss (The Bold and the Beautiful), Mary Beth Evans (Days of Our Lives), Tristan Rogers (The Young and the Restless) and Nicolas Coster (Santa Barbara).
Produced for Amazon, The Bay received nine Emmy Awards, including best drama, outstanding lead actor (Kristos Andrews) and outstanding lead actress in a digital daytime drama (Evans). Jesse Murphy’s TopRat Productions brokered the deal on behalf of LANY Entertainment.
“GRB is thrilled to bring The Bay to the international marketplace for the first time at MIPCOM 2017,” said Michael Lolato, the senior VP of international distribution at GRB Entertainment. “The Bay is a must-see series with a truly outstanding cast. It’s one of those shows you can’t stop watching once you start.”
“I couldn’t be more excited to partner with GRB,” said Gregori J. Martin, Emmy-winning creator, director and showrunner of The Bay who is attending MIPCOM. “I’m so proud of our incredible series and cast, and I know it will resonate with audiences throughout the world as much as it has in the U.S.”
