1 February 18th, 2011 ATI has acquired rights to web soap “The Bay”!

According to TV Guide, Jim Romanovich, of Associated Television International tells the outlet that ATI has acquired The Bay created by Gregori J. Martin with plans to sell it as a half-hour cable or syndicated program to air in 2012.

Romanovich stated, “Even though more and more people are gravitating to the web, TV is still the place to reach the widest audience. This is a little risky but I’m a huge fan of The Bay and have great respect for Gregori and his cast and crew. They’ve poured their hearts and souls into this project and I want to help grow them an audience. We’d like to get it on a cable station such as WGN or TV Guide Network or Hallmark — that’s the audience for this.”  Martin will re-edit the Bay webisodes (each running seven to eight minutes) into a package of 13 half-hour shows.

Romanovich also gives us an update in the item on the potential broadcast for the upcoming Daytime Emmy Awards coming in June.  So make sure to read it!
