Gersh gets Bleeth as actress sets first pic

Yasmine Bleeth, coming off a three-season stint as one of the “Baywatch” mermaids, has ankled the William Morris Agency and signed with the Gersh Agency, just as she wraps negotiations to star in her first feature film.

Bleeth is set to join the cast of indie production “It Came From the Sky,” helmed and written by Jack Bender. In the pic, also starring Christopher Lloyd, JoBeth Williams and John Ritter, Bleeth plays a mysterious woman — either a heaven-sent angel or an all-too-human con woman —who gets involved in the lives and problems of an older married couple.

Shooting will start in late November or early December, after Bleeth finishes her starring gig in the NBC telepic “The Lake.” Directed by David Jackson, it’s a sci-fi scarer about a small town whose residents are systematically sucked into a vortex in the center of a lake and replaced with evil doppelgangers.

Bleeth remains with manager Selma Rubin, who has handled the actress for 17 years. At Gersh, Bleeth will be repped by Larry Taube, Bob Gersh and Leslie Siebert.

Bleeth will reprise her “Baywatch” role in at least four guest spots on the series this season. Other acting credits include guesting on NBC sitcom “The Naked Truth” and a starring role in the NBC TV movie “A Face to Die For.”
