PRLog - March 30, 2012 - BURBANK, Calif. -- HOLLYWOOD, CA (March 29, 2011) – It's official – the search is over and Tori Archer (Jillian Clare) really does have a mother. “It's an honor to announce that Terri Garber is joining Miss Behave as the infamous Elizabeth Archer, often referred to as the Queen” says Susan Bernhardt, Executive Producer. “I have loved Terri's work dating back to her memorable stint as Ashton Main in the North and South franchise, my all time favorite mini-series - she was on our short list from the beginning for the much hyped role.” Fans also remember Ms. Garber as Leslie Carrington on the popular prime time soap Dynasty and most recently in her long running role of Iris Dumbrowski on As The World Turns.
Not only will Ms. Garber join the the award winning teen drama, but she is set to star in the Miss Behave spin-off, REIGN, scheduled to debut in 2013. “There has always been two series in the works. It was originally going to be REIGN out the gate, followed by Miss Behave, but it worked better to give our teens the front burner stories first.” Susan continues, “It's finally time to shift the focus and center the drama around the adults, exposing their high profile, twisted lives in the entertainment world.”
Several of the existing Miss Behave characters, including Tori Archer, Dr. Freed (Patrika Darbo), Kristina (Jacee Jule), Marcus Dunne (Eric Martsolf) plus a few of Tori's friends will make the leap to the new show when it debuts next year. In the meantime, Miss Behave will premiere a double episode series finale on June 24, 2012, in celebration of their two year anniversary. “I know it's shocking to many people that we're ending the series, but in actuality, it's just a changing of the guard (no royal puns intended)” says Susan. “Our Miss Behave lead, Jillian Clare, has a very full schedule ahead of her with some mainstream projects, which makes the timing perfect to tie up loose ends with Miss Behave, pass the torch and put our new show into pre-production.”
Miss Behave debuted June 24th, 2010, with an initial twelve episodes. Later that same year, second season began releasing an additional ten episodes. In less that two years of web presence, the show has garnered numerous awards, including multiple accolades for their soundtrack featuring many breakout indie artists, plus nominations and wins for best drama, writing, acting, directing, cinematography and the original Miss Behave theme song.
“I'm thrilled to finally produce a script I've had for nearly three years”, Bernhardt says, “REIGN will have remnants of many shows currently on network television including Revenge and Desperate Housewives plus a dash of daytime drama and of course, a few surprises along the way.” Ms. Garber said "I find it very exciting to be working on the new media web series, Reign, as 'the Queen'. Miss Behave has done enormously well, and hopefully this spin-off will be equally successful.”
