As the nation’s college students prepare to head back to school, “As the World Turns” is making plans to join them in person. The CBS soap is launching a “Catch Us If You Can” college bus tour featuring three of the show’s young stars, according to the Associated Press. Heartthrob Agim Kaba will join costars Peyton List and Jessica Dunphy as they head to college campuses in nine states and shoot scenes for the soap. The episodes will begin airing in October, with a storyline involving the three young fugitives hiding from the law on campus. Producers for the show, which marked its 46th season on the air this spring, chose Franklin College in Indiana as their first campus stop. Casting directors also will be holding auditions at the school September 10 for students to fill out 15 roles including three with speaking parts. The road trip was the brainchild of executive producer Christopher Goutman, who wanted to give college students a chance to meet some of the show’s young stars in person.
