‘As the Fire Pit Burns’ stars the actress as a businesswoman on a trip who is forced to deal with her nemesis at the hotel they are both staying in.
Niecy Nash is set to star in a digital series for Marriott Content Studio and Above Average, the YouTube channel from Lorne Michaels’ Broadway Video.
Nash — known for hosting Clean House and for her roles in Getting On, Scream Queens and The Soul Man — will star in the four-part soap opera As the Fire Pit Burns. The weekly web series premieres next month on the Above Average channel and on Residence Inn’s website and social channels.
As Marriott Content Studio’s latest initiative, the soap opera will capture the passion, excitement, and intrigue of travel in a “humorous and dramatic way.” Focusing on the personal and professional relationships between co-workers and their shared travel experience, the series stars Nash as a successful businesswoman staying at the Marriott’s Residence Inn for a conference. But when her longtime nemesis and business competitor checks in, things get interesting.
