Back For A Drama-Filled Second Season, CBS Daytime Presents "As The World Turns" Boot Camp, Which Comes To Life In The Form Of An Internet-Based Soap Opera Reality Show
INTURN 2, an original internet-based reality show where the ultimate prize is a 13-week contract role on the CBS Daytime drama AS THE WORLD TURNS, returns for another run on Friday, June 15 on CBS.com. Nine young hopefuls will go through weeks of auditions and drama at AS THE WORLD TURNS boot camp to fulfill their dreams of winning a role on the long-running series.
Internet users can watch a new episode of INTURN on CBS.com on most Tuesdays and Thursdays, running from June 15th through August 14th. Each episode will be approximately five to 10 minutes long, with a total of 16 episodes. The series will follow the nine participants as they move into a loft in Brooklyn, N.Y. and undergo a series of auditions, such as screen tests, cold readings, improvisations and an "awkward elements" audition that will ultimately lead to six contestants being voted out by a group of judges.
The three remaining contestants will be written into the show as "characters" on AS THE WORLD TURNS. Viewers across America will then have a chance to vote online for their favorite "character" (one of the three finalists), ultimately selecting the newest cast member on AS THE WORLD TURNS.
AS THE WORLD TURNS actors involved include Martha Byrne ("Lily Snyder"), Alex Charak ("Elwood Hoffman"), Elizabeth Hubbard ("Lucinda Walsh"), Kelley Menighan Hensley ("Emily Stewart"), Jennifer Landon ("Gwen Munson"), Michael Park ("Jack Snyder") and Jesse Lee Soffer ("Will Munson").
