Quartet pact for reality project
The babes from “Baywatch” are dipping their toes back in the TV water.Former “Baywatch” stars Traci Bingham, Nicole Eggert, Donna D’Errico and Gena Lee Nolin have signed on to star in “Back to the Bay,” which is in the works at alternative production shingle Stone and Co. The “docu-comedy” will center on the women, who will all star as themselves, living together in a beach house. Show follows the women as they embark on new phases of their career: For example, Eggert is working on exercise DVDs and raising a 12-year-old daughter, while Nolin just wrote a book about postpartum depression, having just given birth to her third child. D’Errico is said to be “a conspiracy theorist” whose goal is to climb Mt. Ararat and search for Noah’s Ark. And Bingham has opened a dating service — with herself as the first client. Exec producers Scott Stone and David Weintraub created the show, which Stone called “a fun summer romp on the beach.” “These amazing women have all embraced the nostalgia of the ‘Baywatch’ phenomenon and are ready to show us all how to have a blast again,” Stone said. Stone and Co.’s other upcoming fare includes the CW’s “One Mass Dance”; the Bravo cooking competish “Cook or Quit”; HGTV’s “Showhouse”; and the TLC entry “Extreme Food Sculpting.”
