[via press release from CBS]


CBS Daytime Presents "As The World Turns" Boot Camp, Which Comes To Life In The Form Of A Soap Opera Reality Show

This summer, eight young hopefuls go through weeks of challenges and drama at AS THE WORLD TURNS boot camp to fulfill their dreams of becoming that show's next big star. INTURN is an original web-based reality show where the ultimate prize is a 13-week contract role on the CBS Daytime drama AS THE WORLD TURNS. INTURN debuts Monday, July 17 on innertube on CBS.com.

Internet users can watch a new episode of INTURN on innertube three days a week for eight weeks. Each episode will be approximately three to five minutes long with a total of 24 episodes. The series will follow eight participants as they move into a loft in Brooklyn, N.Y. and undergo a series of challenges, such as screen tests, cold readings and awkward prop challenges that will ultimately lead to five 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 Trent Dawson ("Henry Coleman"), Michael Park ("Jack Snyder"), Colleen Zenk Pinter ("Barbara Ryan"), Terri Colombino ("Katie Peretti"), Paul Leyden ("Simon Frasier"), Van Hansis ("Luke Snyder"), Alexandra Chando ("Maddie Coleman"), Zach Roerig ("Casey Hughes"), Marie Wilson ("Meg Snyder"), Ellen Dolan ("Margo Hughes"), Scott Holmes ("Tom Hughes") and Jesse Lee Soffer ("Will Munson"). They will act as judges, participate in challenges or offer advice.
