CBS to Air Daytime Emmy's for Second Consecutive Year

(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — UPDATE: "All of us are excited to once again show America just how great and relevant daytime television is to all of us.  We look forward to a fabulous evening of television that will delight, entertain and enlighten," said Darryl Cohen, chairman of the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences in a statement in a CBS press release.

“We are delighted to be working again with NATAS and CBS after last year’s great success,” said David McKenzie, executive producer and ATI president.  “Daytime television continues to be a dominant force in the industry and we’re proud that we’re bringing this special night honoring the daytime community to a wide television audience.”

“The best of daytime will be joined by the best of Las Vegas as some of the greatest entertainers in the world will join us for a celebration of all that is great about daytime television,” said Jack Sussman, Executive Vice President, Specials, Music and Live Events, CBS Entertainment.  ”It will be a primetime event for television honoring daytime’s best with non-stop entertainment, guest star surprises and oh, yes, we’ll give out a few awards as well.”

The 38th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards will air from 8:00 to 10:00 PM ET/PT (recorded for the west coast). Nominations will be announced on Wednesday, May 11, but preceeding the announcement pre-nominated actors (for the daytime soaps) are required to submit two of their best episodes from 2010 to be watched and judged by their fellow daytime colleagues.

PREVIOUS: After finding itself without a home for much of 2009 before landing on The CW in August of that year, The Daytime Emmy Awards once again returned to the Big three networks after CBS made a deal with the National Association of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS) in 2010 to broadcast the annual program. As 2011 began, the fate of the Daytime Emmys was once again in doubt. Now Deadline.com is reporting that CBS has once again signed a deal to air the "38th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards" live from the Las Vegas Hilton Hotel in Las Vegas, NV on Sunday, June 19.

The program will be produced by ATI Television International and will be executive produced by David McKenzie, ATI's president.

"NATAS is once again delighted to work with CBS and ATI on the broadcast of the Daytime Emmy Awards," said Darryl Cohen, chairman of the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences in a statement released to Deadline.com.

A timeslot has not been revealed, but it is expected to air from 9:00 to 11:00 PM ET/PT (recorded for west coast viewing) as it did last year.

          'All My Children' On Chopping Block?

          (SoapOperaNetwork.com) — UPDATE 8:28 PM ET: "The piece is just another story in a long line of stories about this same topic," said an ABC rep commenting on Deadline.com's article.

          PREVIOUS 9:08 AM ET: Talk of ABC canceling one of its daytime dramas in favor of a new talk show has escalated today thanks to Deadline.com reporter Nellie Andreeva, who is reporting that the network may cancel "All My Children" in order to debut a new talk show in the fall according to industry speculation. The information is not new to soap fans who as recent as four weeks ago learned through Daytime Confidential that "affiliates are getting antsy with Oprah leaving the airwaves with no clear cut successor. The decisions ABC will be making will have ripple effects throughout the ABC Daytime lineup and yes, the soaps will be affected," according to their sources.

          According to Andreeva, "with SOAPnet changing its format to the preschool-centered Disney Junior next year, Disney-ABC is clearly scaling back on its commitment to soaps, and the daytime lineup on the broadcast network will probably be next."

          As in the case of the DC report from last month, an ABC representative reminds us "there's nothing to comment on" and that all discussions of this topic are based on old news that has already been widely reported on, but with some new speculation added in.

            Former 'AMC' Hunk Hits the Big-Screen

            (SoapOperaNetwork.com) — Colin Egglesfield leaves his past disappointments behind him and hits the big-screen with Kate Hudson this May.

            "All My Children" fans best know Colin Egglesfield as the back-from-the-abortion son of Dr. Jeff Martin and Erica Kane (Susan Lucci), Josh Madden. In the fall of 2008, the model turned actor was let go from the role he began playing in September 2005; he would return for a brief run in January 2009 to facilitate the controversial character's death. Following his run on the ABC soap, the actor named one People Magazine's Sexiest Men Alive in 2005 landed a starring role on the CW's remake of the hit FOX series "Melrose Place". Facing low ratings the show decided to re-tool and Egglesfield ceased airing as chef Auggie Kirkpatrick after 13 episodes of the series that only lasted 18 episodes. The 38-year old actor has put aside those recent career disappointments and is set to air in no less than two big acting projects this year.

            Scheduled for release on May 6, Egglesfield will hit theaters around the country in the Warner Bros. distributed romantic-comedy "Something Borrowed", an adaptation of Emily Griffin's New York Times Best Seller book that was published in 2005. Egglesfield shares the leading credits of this film with Academy Award nominee Kate Hudson ("Almost Famous", "How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days", "You, Me and Dupree", "Bride Wars"), Ginnifer Goodwin (HBO's "Big Love"), John Krasinski (NBC's "The Office", films "It's Complicated", "Monsters vs Aliens"), and Steve Howey (HBO's "Entourage", Showtime's "Shameless"). In the film, Egglesfield plays Rex. Rex is engaged to Darcy (Hudson) but ends up in bed with her best friend Rachel (Goodwin). Uh-oh!

            With production on that film complete, Egglesfield has been tapped for the lead role as the Southern charmer and potential serial killer Tucker Longstreet on Lifetime Movie Networks adaptation of Nora Robert's 1991 published novel "Carnal Innocence". Egglesfield will star opposite Gabrielle Anwar, who plays the female lead as world-class violinist Caroline Waverly. Anwar is best known for the roles of Margaret Tudor on "The Tudors" and for her role as Fiona Glenanne on "Burn Notice". Shriley Jones ("The Partridge Family"), Judson Mills and Kym Jackson (NBC's "Chuck) are also set to appear in the movie. The romantic-mystery "Carnal Innocence" is set to hit the small screen later this year.

              Shannon Kane Returns to 'AMC'

              (SoapOperaNetwork) — The Hubbard's latest delivery delivers budding film-star Shannon Kane back to "All My Children".

              Shannon Kane is set to make a brief return to "All My Children" during the week of March 28.

              Kane played Officer Natalia Fowler, daughter of Police Chief Jesse Hubbard (Darnell Williams) and Dr. Rebecca Fowler (Laura Koffman), on "AMC" from October 2008 to February 2011. The actress who enjoyed a noteworthy role opposite Richard Gere in the 2009 cop-film "Brooklyn's Finest" opted out of her contract with the ABC soap. Upon news of her exit, current "AMC" Head Writers Donna Swajeski and David Kreizman promised that they'd make room for the actress to return to help complete the Hubbard family whenever the opportunity knocked.

              Look for Natalia to leave Philadelphia for Pine Valley to help welcome her newest sibling to the world, and "AMC" fans can rest-assured that she'll also make some time for her loving boyfriend Brot Monroe (J.R. Martinez).

                It's Child's Play for Brenda as 'GH' Casts New Character

                (SoapOperaNetwork.com) — As posted on our Twitter page, ABC's "General Hospital" has cast child actor Elvis Martinez in the role of Lucian. The actor will share scenes with Vanessa Marcil Giovinazzo (Brenda Barrett Corinthos) and Laura Wright (Carly Jacks) that are set to air during the week of April 4.

                The length of the characters stay on the show is not known at this time, therefore making it unclear as to whether the character is the long thought to be dead child of Brenda's or what brings him into Brenda's orbit, but we can tell you that Brenda is clearly in the motherly mood.

                Giovinazzo recently announced in an interview with Access Hollywood Live that her time on "General Hospital" is soon coming to a close. The news has not been confirmed by ABC.

                  The Instability of Lily's Mind on 'Y&R'

                  (SoapOperaNetwork.com) — Since the death of her husband last month, after he was murdered on CBS' "The Young and the Restless," Lily Winters (Christel Khalil) has been seeing what appears to be his ghost in various places – not to mention also hearing his voice. Lily's mind will continue to play tricks on her when actor Daniel Goddard returns to the CBS soap as the "ghost" of Cane in the coming weeks, but is it possible he's not a ghost after all?

                  In Lynette Rice's report on the status of Goddard, which was posted on Entertainment Weekly's website over a month ago, the reporter made it clear that "Goddard remains a paid employee of 'Y&R' until further notice (or until they’re officially ready to boot him)," according to her sources. A week after Rice posted this news Goddard was seen on the set filming an episode set to air during the week of March 28. In the episode, Goddard's character is seen standing in an elavator as Lily looks on with her aunt Olivia (Tonya Lee Williams) and her father Neil (Kristoff St. John) by her side. Lily instantly becomes frazzled by what she's seen and begins to question if she's losing her mind.

                  According to sources, "the storyline of Lily's mentality will continue to play out for sometime as the pieces of the puzzle become clearer as each day goes on." So what does this mean for Goddard fans who've been clamoring for the actors permanent return since it was announced the soap was "killing" his character off earlier this year? While there is still no definitive word on the actors status from the show or his representatives, we've been told that "the storyline is all part of a master plan by the writers and fans should continue to tune in to find out what happens next!"
