Soap opera veteran and two-time Emmy winner Crystal Chappell (Danielle, THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL; ex-Carly, DAYS OF OUR LIVES; Olivia, GUIDING LIGHT) now stars in the entertaining new Web series, THE INN. Part ghost story and part psychological thriller, THE INN tells the tale of a woman (Chappell) for whom getting stranded in a remote town results in a journey of self-discovery.
"It's about how new people come in and teach you lessons that you need to learn and ultimately resolving some underlying demons," Chappell previews. "Steve Silverman (the show runner behind the award winning web comedy, PRETTY) is a wonderful writer and director. He really put a lot into this show -- the script is spooky fun!"
Also in the series is Denise Alexander (Lesley, GENERAL HOSPITAL; Mary, ANOTHER WORLD), whose real-life property was used as the location for the show. "She plays a resident of the neighborhood, and our characters end up bonding," Chappell explains. "It was really fun to [work with] her." Posting at www.theinntheseries.com beginning Monday, February 4, the weekly series will air over the course of three seasons in 2013, all of which have already been shot.
"It has so many twists and turns and symbolism in it," Chappell enthuses. "It's not a gory thing or a scary, 'boo' thing... you just really have to think about it -- the soap fans will enjoy it."
