Soap fans who remember Tracy Melchior as Kristen Forrester on THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL will get to see the actress in a whole new role as a tatted, pierced, openly lesbian “talent recruiter” in the new BET primetime sudser, GAMES PEOPLE PLAY, premiering on Tuesday, April 23. “I play Roxanne Wood, a Hollywood madam. How much fun is that?” Melchior shared with Soaps In Depth. “Mostly, I interact with [Parker McKenna Posey’s] actress character. She’s my first client that I get — I basically seek her out in a casting office.”
GAMES PEOPLE PLAY is based on the popular book, Games Divas Play, by Angela Burt-Murray and centers around a basketball wife trying to protect her family, a tenacious journalist struggling to rebuild her career, and a groupie who is looking to become a star. Laila, the struggling actress who signs on with Melchior’s character, will clearly do whatever it takes to make her dreams come true, but how far will she really go?
With her roles as Veronica on THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS, Tess on SUNSET BEACH, Renée on PASSIONS, and Kelly on ONE LIFE TO LIVE, Melchior knows her drama, and promises soap fans that GAMES PEOPLE PLAY is right up their alley describing it as “a very sexy show with a MELROSE PLACE vibe.” Check out this preview of what viewers can look forward to!
GAMES PEOPLE PLAY premiers on Tuesday, April 23, at 10 p.m. ET on BET, so don’t miss it! And for more on your favorite B&B stars — past and present — keep reading the CBS edition of Soaps in Depth magazine.
