Senior Vice President of CBS Daytime, Angelica McDaniel, took to Twitter today to announce that the network’s number one soap opera, “The Young and the Restless,” has made a behind-the-scenes change: The show’s publicist, Jimmy Freeman, has stepped into the role of Associate Producer!

The term “whirlwind” doesn’t even come close to describing the recent life of “The Bold and the Beautiful’s” Kim Matula (Hope Logan). In addition to accepting “B&B’s” ninth consecutive Golden Nymph award at the International TV Audience Awards during the 54th Monte Carlo Television Festival in Monte Carlo this month and just finishing filming on location in Paris, France, she’s still basking in the recent news that she officially received her very first Emmy nomination!

Hallmark’s beloved talk show “Home & Family” has featured so many soap star guests, it’s a wonder it’s not up for Outstanding Drama Series in this year’s Daytime Emmy race. With everyone from “Days of our Lives’” Deidre Hall (Marlena Evans) to the “Young and the Restless’” Peter Bergman (Jack Abbott) and Eric Braeden (Victor Newman) dropping by, it’s pretty much par-for-par with Salem, Port Charles and Genoa City. Though, as former “Entertainment Tonight” personality and current “Home & Family” co-host Mark Steines would tell you, the set is anything but something you’d see on a typical daytime drama.

“The Young and the Restless’” Amelia Heinle (Victoria Newman) is celebrating her first ever Emmy nomination as well as an exciting storyline involving Sean Carrigan’s Stitch, but that didn’t prevent her from opening up about a slew of other topics when reporters chatted with the actress shortly after she received the news that she’d officially be in this year’s Emmy race. The actress had no qualms about discussing the emotional year “Y&R” has experienced, what it was like working with Billy Miller (ex-Billy Abbott), her obsession with Tristan Rogers (Colin Atkinson) and more.

Since Melissa Ordway joined “The Young and the Restless” as Abby Newman just over a year ago, she hasn’t had much exciting story to sink her teeth into — until now! The drama between Abby, Tyler (Redaric Williams) and Mariah (Camryn Grimes) is about to explode, and Soap Opera Network caught up with Ordway to get the juicy details!

Having catapulted to the number one spot in the 18-49 demo and experienced double digit improvement in many time slots, NBC has announced its upcoming fall 2014-2015 primetime schedule. The network is introducing a portfolio of new content that will be joining veteran shows “About a Boy,” “The Blacklist,” “Chicago Fire,” “Chicago P.D.,” “Grimm,” “Hannibal,” “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit,” “Parenthood,” “Parks and Recreation,” “America Ninja Warrior,” “America’s Got Talent,” "The Biggest Loser," “Celebrity Apprentice,” “Hollywood Game Night” and “The Voice.”

"The Young and the Restless'" Joshua Morrow (Nicholas Newman), of the hit independent film, “Tentacle 8,” — which also stars Bruce Gray (ex-Mark Wilcox), Teri Reeves (ex-Megan McKenna, "General Hospital"), and “All My Children’s” John Callahan (ex-Edmund Grey) and Matthew Borlenghi (ex-Brian Bodine) — will be appearing at Laemmle’s NoHo7 theater in Los Angeles for a special film screening on Tuesday, May 20, and guess what? Soap Opera Network has partnered with the film’s director, John Chi, in giving away two pairs of screening tickets to a couple of lucky SON readers!

Hot on the heels of Fox and NBC’s release of their fall 2014-2015 primetime schedules comes the reveal of ABC’s fall schedule, which includes several new series (which you can read more about here).
