TRAVIS SINCLAIR &
The long-running soap opera The Bold and the Young is in its last days: its hunky hero has self-esteem issues, its villainous old man is more interested in soup, and its heroines are slightly psychopathic. The executive producer gives the squabbling cast an ultimatum: Complete one episode overnight or the show dies. But when the director ends up murdered, and other cast members start dropping like flies, it seems like his threat might actually come true. Can these misfits discover the murderer before the show is literally killed off?

Morris Nyborg – aka Jake Strong (30s Male)
Morris Nyborg was once the most handsome hunk on daytime TV but has since grown insecure after his decline in popularity. Morris stars in the soap opera The Bold and The Young as Jake Strong. Jake is a passionate character who rides a motorcycle and has seen his fair share of Amazonian tree frogs, mental hospitals, and evil half-brothers. Morris wears glasses while not in character.
Bill Wiley – aka Sebastian Strong (20s-30s Male)
Bill Wiley is The Bold and The Young’s chief ladies-man. Bill has a history with almost every woman in the B&Y cast, but is currently interested in Danielle. Bill plays Sebastian Strong, a goldfish-killer and (possibly) Jake Strong’s brother. Sebastian is the new fiancé of Jessica Silverstedt, much to the chagrin of Jessica’s mother.
John Burke – aka Valencio DiCarpathio (60s Male)
A soup-loving old guy, John Burke is one of the original stars of the daytime soap opera The Bold and The Young. John has a crotchety disposition and isn’t afraid to speak his mind. On B&Y, John plays the wealthy, well-dressed Valencio DiCarpathio, who is pretty obviously evil. Valencio is perpetually at odds with Jake Strong and may be battling a terminal illness.
Cybil Dane – aka Mona Jeffries (60+ Female)
Cybil Dane has been a cast member of The Bold and The Young since the show began, and has since grown unable to discern real life from the soap opera’s plot. Cybil is constantly bickering with John Burke and worrying about her Pomeranians, George W. and Laura Bush. Cybil plays series regular Mona Jeffries, who is plagued with hallucinations and has been placed under the care of the evil Doctor William.
Amy White – aka Eileen Silverstedt (30s-40s Female)
Amy White has been a cast member on The Bold and The Young for quite some time and isn’t afraid to forgo professionalism to change her lines or make jabs at her fellow castmates. Amy once dated Bill Wiley and may still have feelings for him. Amy works hard to uncover some murderous truths, having to expose a secret or two of her own along the way. On B&Y, Amy plays Eileen Silverstedt, Jessica’s mother and ex-lover of Jake Strong.
Danielle Farris – aka Jessica Silverstedt (20s Female)
Danielle Farris is by far the bubbliest cast member of The Bold and The Young. Danielle is easily swayed by anyone on set and believes everyone has the best intentions. On B&Y, Danielle plays a character opposite of her personality, Jessica Silverstedt. Jessica is the angst-filled daughter of Eileen and is recently engaged to Sebastian Strong.
Tyler Tripodo – aka Doctor William Bradley (20s-30s Male)
Tyler Tripodo can’t wait to leave the cast of The Bold and The Young and move on to bigger and better opportunities in the entertainment industry. Tyler is a constant annoyance to his B&Y castmates with his egocentric comments and phone calls to his manager. Tyler plays the part of Doctor William Bradley, Sequoiya’s boyfriend and Mona Jeffries’ evil doctor with ulterior motives (possibly hamster kidney harvesting?).
Lily Baumgartner – aka Sequoiya (20s-30s Female)
As per her court-ordered therapists, The Bold and The Young’s Lily Baumgartner is trying to be a pleasant person. But Lily’s instability has led her to depend upon her job as a soap opera actress a little too much. Lily is cast as a naïve hippy, Sequoiya. Sequoiya is in love with Doctor William and might just fall victim to one of his schemes.
Oli (Any Age, Male or Female)
Oli is the spunky, straight-shooting director of The Bold and The Young, a struggling daytime soap opera. Oli’s no-nonsense attitude can frustrate the B&Y cast members from time to time. Oli answers to Miles/Mary, the show’s producer, and pleads to keep the show on the air.
Kaitlin/Todd (Any Age, Male or Female)
As The Bold and The Young’s stage manager, Kaitlin tries her best to keep the zany cast & crew on track. But is Kaitlin a little too absorbed with the production schedule?
Keri (Young Female)
It’s Keri’s first day as an intern on the struggling daytime soap opera The Bold and The Young. Keri knows everything there is to know about every B&Y cast member, excitingly interjecting into any conversation. Keri’s overeagerness frustrates some of the other cast and crew members. Will her passion prove to be helpful or harmful?
Brooke/Louis (Any Age, Male or Female)
As cameraperson for The Bold and The Young, Brooke sticks around on set to capture all the magic.
Miles/Mary (Any Age, Male or Female)
Miles is the cutthroat producer of The Bold and The Young. He is discontent with the show’s lack of efficiency and conveys to the cast the network’s decision to cancel the show if the cast is unable to speed up their production.
