What happens when two attractive young people – an unemployed business analyst and a budding comic-book artist – unknowingly rent the same apartment, the only one that each can afford? They reluctantly decide to move in together, and that’s when the sparks fly as opposite worlds collide, in Room 8, the new online series debuting today at Room8TheSeries.com.
Now, The Bold and the Beautiful fans can watch the fictional characters’ work come to life in this first-of-its kind extension for a daytime television soap opera. As fans know, Lawrence Saint-Victor plays Carter on B&B playing “Lance” on the web series set in on the CBS storyline and Karla Mosley plays Maya on B&B who is playing the role of “Scarlett” in Room 8!
Now, Room 8 follows the comical journey of “Lance Moore” (Lawrence Saint Victor) and “Scarlett Howard” (Karla Mosley) who decide to swallow their pride and make a go of it together in the one and only unit each can afford in the big city. In Room 8, “Scarlett,” is a suburban Seattle high-school valedictorian who graduated from Purdue University. “Lance,” is a Brooklyn native who had his pick of playing football for any number of colleges but decided to move to L.A. to pursue his dream of becoming a comic-book artist. Mosley and Saint-Victor, the actors behind Maya/Scarlett and Carter/Lance, wrote and produced all eight episodes. Rounding out the cast of Room 8 are Sean Whalen as “Randy the Landlord,” Deborah S. Craig as “Missy,” and Ross Kiddor as “Dex.”
