On Friday, September 18, when Soap Opera Digest reported on a casting call going out for the contract role of Alisha by CBS' "The Bold and the Beautiful," fans of the daytime drama series began pondering if the show had plans to recast the role of Nicole (played by Reign Edwards) as the description for the character soundly awfully similar to that of the younger Avant sister. Thankfully, that doesn't seem to be the case.

Although she'll soon be gracing our screens once again as Sami Brady on "Days of our Lives" in the coming weeks, actress Alison Sweeney will no longer appear in primetime as host of NBC's "The Biggest Loser," it was announced today by the show's producers. Sweeney had hosted the program for 13 consecutive cycles, taking over from Caroline Rhea in 2007.
In addition to the previously reported untitled Cain and Abel themed soapy family drama that the network gave a put pilot order to on Friday, Deadline is reporting that NBC has bought family drama "The Bourbon Kings," based on the best-selling novel of the same name by J.R. Ward, and "Talent," a family oriented soap opera following a music prodigy who is dealing with the murder of his one true love in a unique way. Both projects are in development for the 2016-17 television season.
While Eric Brady prepares to contemplate what he could have done to save Serena Mason (Melissa Archer) from the clutches of a serial killer about to infest Salem beginning next week on NBC's "Days of our Lives," actor Greg Vaughan is already aware of what the future holds for his career. The actor recently announced that he has signed a new deal with the Sony Pictures Television/Corday Productions produced soap opera to continue on as the lovable son of Marlena Evans (Deidre Hall) and Roman Brady (Josh Taylor). He's also going to be starring in an upcoming Hallmark Channel original movie.
Barely a day after reporting news of broadcast networks looking for more soaps on their primetime schedules, Deadline is reporting that NBC has given a put pilot order for an untitled soapy family drama from "Empire" producers Imagine TV, "How To Make It In America" creator Ian Edelman and "The Devil Wears Prada" director David Frankel. Like the FOX primetime hit, the potential new series will also include a musical connection, but instead of being about the industry itself it'll take place in the Cuban exiles of Miami.
With Josh Griffith and Dena Higley's work officially hitting the screen beginning with the Wednesday, August 19 episode, fans of NBC's "Days of our Lives" are in for a daring ride with the return of Stephen Nichols as Steve "Patch" Johnson and the beginning of a serial killer storyline. The first victim? Serena Mason (Melissa Archer). But did Chad DiMera (Billy Flynn) have something to do with her death?
