"I wish she'd tell me what she was thinking" are the first spoken words in the teaser trailer for the upcoming film "On Air" by Paos Revolution, a new production company formed by Jordi Vilasuso ("All My Children," "Guidiing Light") and acting coaches from "AMC" and "General Hospital." The film will tell the fictionalized story of life after a popular soap opera gets canceled and how the stars of the program are forced to move on.
According to a report by Deadline.com's Nellie Andreeva, CBS has canceled freshman comedy "Partners" after the program hit a new series low in the coveted Adults 18-49 demo (1.8 rating) this past Monday. The series starred Brandon Routh (“One Life to Live”), Michael Urie (“Ugly Betty”), David Krumholtz (“Numb3rs”) and Sophia Bush (“One Tree Hill”). The series was based on the lives of creators David Kohan and Max Mutchnick as two life-long friends and business partners whose “bromance” is put to the test when one of them becomes engaged.
Although it wasn't listed with the other "Hot" stuff in TV Guide Magazine's Annual "Hot List" issue (pages 16-35), "General Hospital" did earn a spot under Michael Logan's Daytime Highlights column (page 84) under the heading "Hot Again." NBC's "Days of our Lives" also made the cut under the heading "Hot Days, Hotter Nights" courtesy of daytime's hottest (and only) gay on screen couple, Will Horton (Chandler Massey) and Sonny Kiriakis (Freddie Smith).
