Tragedy in Genoa City!

You've seen the ads: Out of the ashes, we'll see the real tragedy. All next week on The Young and the Restless, Genoa City residents will be dealing with the aftermath of the Clear Springs parking structure collapse. Here is an excerpt from my interview with Peter Bergman about the story line:

According to Peter: “Filming this was an extraordinary thing. The actors, cameramen and crew were all working 16-17 hour days; the set was five times as big as any set we’ve ever had. We had not just the collapsed parking structure, not just a hook-and-ladder fire engine, but we had about 40 extras, we had real firemen, police cars … I was pretty awestruck to walk out on the set and see all that.”

Jack, Nick and Sharon end up being trapped together beneath the rubble. And you can bet there is going to be some friction. “From the get-go, Nicholas and I are arguing about which is the best way to get out. Sharon has to referee us quite a few times.”

Peter is most excited about this story line, because he can’t wait for the viewers to see the fruit of their labor. “The audience will have great fun with this. I think you’ll see a scale to this that is overwhelming. This is really something to see. It will be shocking to see people at their wits’ end – some deal with it better than others.”

If that build-up isn't enough to entice you to watch, how about this:

“A tragic building collapse at Clear Springs traps friends and foes, changing them forever. Enemies are forced to form alliances and bystanders become unlikely heroes. Loved ones can only wait for word as each passing hour means less hope.”

If that doesn't either, then I just don't know what to say to you! Be sure to watch all next week. You won't be sorry!
