Ah, remember the good ole days of Oakdale and the life of good gal gone bad, gone questionable, Emily Stewart? We do too! Kelley Menighan Hensley, who has been Daytime Emmy nominated for the role on As the World Turns, is back on television starting tonight!
In a brand new scripted television series called, Reality Show, Kelley stars in this 8-episode, darkly satirical series, which follows Mickey Wagner (Adam Rifkin), a down on his luck reality show producer, as he crafts a sensational comeback. Fed up with how staged and phony reality shows are, Mickey’s hatches a revolutionary idea to pick an average American family and put them under all-encompassing surveillance…without the family’s knowledge. T he concept is to let real life unfold before the cameras. However, the family is numbingly boring. And the studio wants more sizzle. So Mickey starts to introduce drama into the unwitting family’s lives. Temptation to cheat, drinking, work problems…. chaos ensues. Everything unravels in a big, big way with shocking consequences.
Hensley plays Katherine Warwick, who Kelley refers to in her blog as “insanely vanilla, crafty, sex deprived, and happy as can be. Or is she?” In addition, in a new conversation with CBS Soaps In Depth, Kelley revealed, “It’s out there. I mean, I called my parents when I agreed to do it and I’m like, ‘I’m just preparing you that.. I’m not a hundred percent sure I want you to see all of it!’”
After the jump, take a look at the teaser for Reality Show and if you have Showtime let us know if you will be tuning into the season premiere of it tonight at 11:30PMEST/PST?
