Colleen Zenk lands new soap gig; reunion with former co-star to create ‘television magic'

ATWT's Colleen Zenk is headed to Proper Manors, where she'll be reuniting with a very familiar face.

Mamma mia! Former As the World Turns star Colleen Zenk (ex-Barbara Ryan) has landed a new job as a matriarch for the Internet drama Proper Manors.

The actress has been cast as Delia Aragona Messina in the series, which follows the Italian American Sorrento family of small town Proper, USA. The family's deep connections in the community present challenges for them as they traverse the dangers of small town American politics while trying to get ahead guarding their own secrets and agendas. Meanwhile, the youth of Proper are merely pawns in the games the adults are playing.

As soap fans may already know, former ATWT actress Anne Sward (ex-Lyla Montgomery) stars as Blanche in the series.

"As head writer of Proper Manors, I am very excited to have such a legendary staple of daytime TV as Colleen Zenk joining our cast, and look forward to weaving her new dynamic character into the tapestry of Proper Manors," says Brandyn Cross. "In particular, the reunion of Colleen and her As the World Turns co-star, Anne Sward... is simply the stuff of television magic."

Proper Manors is currently available on Blip.tv, Propermanors.tv, and YouTube and was recently picked up for international distribution by Proven Entertainment. Zenk is set to appear in the latter half of season three.
