The Internet serial "Lonelygirl15" will get star treatment Friday January 19th, when American Idol runner up Katharine McPhee is scheduled to play a guest role on the web show.
"Lonelygirl15" centers around Bree and other characters with their own chains of video blogs. The characters interact and the plot lines are woven together to produce a single, all-inclusive tale of the character's videos as they investigate messages embedded in the clips. "Lonelygirl15" has its own Web site and is posted on YouTube and other sites.
McPhee, a fan of the show, plays a female role who meets Bree and her friends after they briefly emerge from hiding. The episode, titled "Truth or Dare," was filmed last week. McPhee did not get paid for her role. Besides, the singer will also have a song from her forthcoming debut album in the background of the "Lonelygirl15" installment.
In other McPhee news, the beauty is going to have her self-titled debut album, "Katharine McPhee", released January 30th later this year under RCA Records.
