Jane Lynch teams with Lisa Kudrow for 'Dropping the Soap' web series


The team behind Lisa Kudrow’s Internet hit Web Therapy is at it again with a new web series set in the dying world of daytime soaps. Glee’s Jane Lynch will star in the 10-episode comedy Dropping the Soap playing Olivia Vanderstein, the new Head of the Network, who’ll try anything to save the long-running soap opera Colliding Lives.

Lynch and Kudrow are exec producers, along with Kudrow’s Web Therapy co-creator Dan Bucatinsky, screenwriter Don Roos (Marley & Me) and Damon Bethel and Joseph Gomes of Digital Broadcasting Group (which recently produced the Webby Award-winning drama The Confession, starring Kiefer Sutherland and John Hurt). Paul Witten costars as Julian Drake, the soap’s leading man of “questionable talent and moral compass.”
