Underdogs trying to find their place in the world.
Updated May 10: FOX has ordered Matula's pilot “LA>Vegas” to series. Fans can expect the comedy to premiere sometime this fall.
Back on March 21, Soaps.com has learned that “The Bold and the Beautiful” alum Kim Matula, who played Hope Logan, has landed a new comedy role in the FOX pilot “LA>Vegas.” The actress, who originally hails from Fort Worth, Texas, has been playing Tiffany James on Lifetime’s UnREAL since 2016, and will now take on the part of Ronnie in her new series, which is described as a workplace comedy surrounding a group of underdogs trying to find their place in the world, set on a Friday night flight from Los Angeles to Las Vegas, and the return flight on Sunday. The group all shares the common goal of becoming winners in the casino of life. “LA>Vegas’” ensemble cast includes Dylan McDermott (“The Practice,” “American Horror Story”) and Olivia Macklin (“The Young Pope”). Matula’s Ronnie is the head flight attendant.
Kim Matula left “The Bold and the Beautiful” in 2016 to pursue other acting opportunities after playing Hope, who now resides in Italy, since 2010. After leaving daytime, Matula appeared in the film Dawn Patrol with Scott Eastwood, as well as “Maybe Someday,” and is currently filming “Fighting With My Family,” which co-stars Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson (“Fast & Furious 6”), and Vince Vaughan (“Wedding Crashers”). Matula will appear in the WWE wrestling themed movie as Jeri-Lyn. Prior to her stint on “B&B,” the actress, who started in the business at the age of 12, appeared in “Pink,” “How I Met Your Mother,” “Exposed,” and “Spilt Milk.”
