Each episode will be approximately five to 10 minutes long, with a total of 16 episodes. The series will follow the nine participants as they move into a loft in Brooklyn, N.Y. and undergo a series of auditions, such as screen tests, cold readings, improvisations and an "awkward elements" audition that will ultimately lead to six contestants being voted out by a group of judges.
The three remaining contestants will be written into the show as "characters" on AS THE WORLD TURNS. Viewers across America will then have a chance to vote online for their favorite "character" (one of the three finalists), ultimately selecting the newest cast member on AS THE WORLD TURNS.
AS THE WORLD TURNS actors involved include Martha Byrne ("Lily Snyder"), Alex Charak ("Elwood Hoffman"), Elizabeth Hubbard ("Lucinda Walsh"), Kelley Menighan Hensley ("Emily Stewart"), Jennifer Landon ("Gwen Munson"), Michael Park ("Jack Snyder") and Jesse Lee Soffer ("Will Munson"). Comedian Marina Franklin, actor DC Benny and actor/comedian Donnell Rawlings are also featured. They will act as judges, participate in challenges or offer advice.
Following are the nine InTurns, listed in alphabetical order, who will compete for the 13-week role: Jessamyn Bradley, Dyon Donley, Natalie Flores, Ry Kennedy, Adam Pena, Ryan Serhant, Justin Stiver, Lauretta Vaugh, and Meredith Weiss.
INTURN was conceived as a companion show to AS THE WORLD TURNS and is executive produced by Christopher Goutman, also executive producer of the daytime drama.
