Lauralee Bell (CBS)

Updated June 2:

Just a reminder that Lauralee's new series is set to debut on June 8, with episode two to be released on June 17!

Original Article May 26:

It seems that Lauralee Bell is still not ready to reprise her popular role of Christine Blair on The Young and the Restless, and we may know why. Lauralee has been busy following in the footsteps of other scribes in the family by writing and directing “Family Dinner," a comedy Web series!

The series, which depicts a family around the dinner table, stars Bell as the manic, attention-craving mom, and icon Phyllis Diller as her mother-in-law. In another Y&R connection, actor Aaron Lustig (Dr. Tim Reid) plays Lauralee's husband in the series. Dan Cortese (MTV) is a man considering planting the odd group in reality TV!

Lauralee's hubby, Scott Martin, is also involved in the project, which is set to debut on June 8 at familydinneronline.com, where a preview is currently available.

Soaps.com wishes Lauralee the best of luck with her new venture!
