Lovers of serial drama and soaps have a lot to be excited about with the release of The Bay on its new platform. “Starting today, September 6, 2016, the multiple Emmy winning digital drama series The Bay is now available for streaming on Amazon Prime,” announced the series creator, director, and writer Gregori J. Martin.

Fans can watch fourteen digitally remastered episodes today on Amazon Prime. Fourteen additional episodes are slated to be released in Fall 2016. The Bay will be free to Amazon Prime members in the following territories; USA, UK-Ireland, Germany, Austria, and Japan. Non-Amazon Prime members may purchase the award-winning series for $9.99 per season or $1.99 per episode on Amazon Instant Video.

Originally named ‘One of the Top 10 Shows Worth Watching’ by TV Guide, The Bay follows the affluent, yet dysfunctional Bay City residents living in a town cursed by Red Garrett, an ominous senator who was murdered by his socialite granddaughter, Sara Garrett. Living in his shadow, Sara, her youngest son Pete, and those around them face a series of dilemmas involving rape, blackmail, sordid lovers, and vindictive arch rivals. Their lives riddled with forbidden love, malicious lies, and never-ending scandals, the town’s privileged tangle with those who confuse obsession for love, vengeance for justice, and power for success.

Recognized by the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (NATAS), The Bay is a multiple Daytime Emmy Award winner in the highly competitive “Outstanding Digital Drama Series” category. Having previously won in 2015, The Bay again won in 2016 after receiving a total of 5 Daytime Emmy nominations in three categories including Mary Beth Evans (Sara Garrett), Lilly Melgar (Janice Ramos), and Patsy Pease (Lola Baker) for “Outstanding Actress in a Digital Daytime Drama Series,” and Kristos Andrews (Pete Garrett), for “Outstanding Actor in a Digital Daytime Drama Series.” The Bay won in each of the three categories at the 43rd Annual Daytime Emmy Awards ceremony as, in addition to the series’ win, Mary Beth Evans and Kristos Andrews were named winners in their respective categories. The series also stars Ronn Moss (John Blackwell), Karrueche Tran (Vivian Johnson), and a slew of well-recognized TV faces.

“We couldn’t be more thrilled that Amazon Prime will now allow more lovers of serialized storytelling to find our show, as well as provide our viewers the opportunity to binge watch and discover never-before-seen footage,” states Martin. “We are currently working on an all new season 3, which will be available on Amazon Prime and Amazon Instant Video in early 2017. None of this would be happening without our fans, who have been with us since the beginning, and we are most grateful.”
