Gregori Martin, the talented creator of The Bay, posted the following on Facebook, "No, it's not #TheBay yet! Wrapped another day on set of new #sitcom w/ @KristosAndrews [Matthew's The Bay co-star, Peter Garrett] & @matthew_ashford #ThisJustIn." I am assuming this too is a webseries -- though I may be wrong. I also am not sure if Matthew is a castmember of this project or was just a guest star for this particular episode. When I have more information I will updated the page.
