"Sugar, ah honey-honey, you are my candy girl, and you got me wanting you" — The Archies
Can someone run and get Uncle Jamey some insulin? My blood sugar has gone straight through the stratosphere after just a sampling of the delicious, high calorie confections creator and star Michael Caruso (DeVanity) is offering up in his new soap opera Winterthorne.
Starring some of the biggest names from daytime and primetime drama, Winterthorne is the steamy, camp-gasmic saga of a ruthless family who uses mystical means to create a billion-dollar candy dynasty.
Days of Our Lives' Martha Madison portrays protagonist Miranda Winterthorne, who must battle her scheming sister Selene (General Hospital's Kirsten Storms) for control of their family's empire. Dallas superstar Linda Gray appears as the girls' mother, Joanna Winterthorne. GH's Kathleen Gati plays Joanna's sister, Valentina. Dynasty, Santa Barbara and Days of Our Lives veteran Gordon Thompson is Joanna's husband, Maximillian Winterthorne (the husbands take their wives's surnames!) and Caruso plays Miranda's henpecked hubby, Victor.
Also appearing are Kevin Spirtas (Days of Our Lives) as Dominic Delacort and One Life to Live alum-turned-DAYS star John-Paul Lavoisier as Hugh Cambridge. Newcomers Ron Hanks and Josh Thrower play Jelly Bean Jim and Colin Winterthorne respectively. Winterthorne premieres Aug. 27. Watch the extended trailer below!
