Australian actress Kate Bell has taken on a very different challenge as the star of a new online drama, that also boasts stars like Vince Colosimo.
Former Blue Water High star Bell plays the main character - a girl who has premonitions and dreams about an upcoming disaster in Sydney - in Cassie Has Dreams, on Ninemsn from Monday.
The drama, made up of 20 three minute episodes, is linked to Nine's upcoming telemovie Scorched.
The two storylines are interconnected, with the online drama providing background and additional storylines.
Many of the cast from Scorched, including Vince Colosimo, will cross over into the online drama.
Bell says it's a unique concept, but was impressed with the production's outcome.
"I think that might be a direction that cinema may end up taking, going towards online," Bell told AAP.
"It doesn't look like your watching something grainy on the internet it looks like cinema but on a computer screen, the production values are really high."
"It's quite dramatic."
The telemovie Scorched is set four years in the future with Sydney in the grip of a severe drought with only eight weeks of water left.
The city is then ravaged by severe bushfires.
It features Georgie Parker as the premier, with other cast members including Vince Colosimo, Rachel Carpani, Libby Tanner and Cameron Daddo.
