For their innovative new "Deep Open" series, which features kitschy remakes of vintage TV show intros like "Laverne & Shirley," "The Jeffersons," and "Three's Company," ABC Columbia's "Good Morning Columbia" show descended on Lake Murray recently to recreate the iconic "Love Boat" feel at Marina Bay.

Amidst laughs from cast, crew and staff, Anderson Burns and Jonathan Oh - both ABC Columbia anchors - shot scene-for-scene recreations of the classic "Love Boat" TV show at Lake Murray Marina, Lake Murray Boat Club, and Better Boat Rental at Marina Bay, catching glimpses of the construction on The Residence at Marina Bay, which debuts Fall 2012.

Andy Burns in a snooty ascot, the morning show crew in multiple roles, double-decker pontoon action shots on the water, a cameo by Lake Murray Boat Club owner Jon Dukes, spot-on graphics, and the "Love Boat" theme make for quite an enjoyable viral video moment.

The clip will air on "Good Morning Columbia" on the Columbia, SC ABC affiliate television station, WOLO, for three weeks until the next deep open has its premiere.

For a bit of boating yourself, drop by Marina Bay and rent a pontoon from Better Boat Rental, join Lake Murray Boat Club, or if you have a boat of your own, then you can lease a boat slip from the Lake Murray Marina. It's all about getting out on that big, beautiful lake of ours, 25 minutes from downtown Columbia, South Carolina.

Coming soon: Liberty Tap Room on the Lake will open at Marina Bay prior to boating season 2013.

Meanwhile, Liberty is hosting a big June 30th parking lot bash with BBQ, the Bud Columbia mobile bar, and live bands so that you can Celebrate your Liberty on the Lake. Here is a link to the Facebook event for this Annual July 4th Celebration:

The Residence at Marina Bay crew will be on site with quite a few cool party gifts to hand out, so do stop by and see them! If you're considering living on Lake Murray, these are going to be the only luxury, contemporary rental apartments on the lake. Resort-style amenities, waterfront location, heated pool, and more. Marina Bay is the *it* place to be if you are renting and love the lakefront lifestyle. For pre-leasing info, call InterMark Management at 803.744.9252 or email
