Two stars from The Young and the Restless have just landed exciting roles with a new CBS drama. According to reports, daytime television alums Alicia Coppola and Sofia Pernas will be starring in the upcoming drama Blood and Treasure, which is set to debut during the summer of 2019.
According to reports, the series is written by Matthew Federman and Stephen Scaia. It’s about a brilliant antiques expert and a cunning art thief who team up to catch a ruthless terrorist. Alicia will play the role of Dr. Ana Castilla, a world-renowned adventurer and archeologist.
Sofia, meanwhile, will play Lexi Vaziri, a passionate, adventurous and charming woman who rebelled against her upstanding father. With two beautiful women in the lead parts, this sounds like a series you won’t want to miss.
