Six-time Daytime Emmy winner, Anthony Geary (Luke) of General Hospital has been cast in a very exciting new project which is about to begin production. The series is a dark romantic comedy for the web titled, Alice & the Monster!
The premise of the web series is: It centers around Alice Hughes, whose life is going great – success in her job, great friends, a new romance – when she’s blindsided by a diagnosis of cancer. She’s faced with a decision: play out the wonderful things happening in her life in what short time she has left, or undergo a dangerous treatment and long rehab, and risk losing everything she’s gained for a slim chance at longer life. Alice & the Monster mixes drama, romance and humor as Alice struggles to make this monumental decision amid the reactions her cancer elicits from the people around her.
Geary will play George, who is a cancer survivor and Alice’s mentor and father figure. Production will run from February through March 2012, with a tentative release scheduled for later in the year.
