NBC’s popular comedy, “The Office,” just aired its final episode, but fans of the single-camera mockumentary may have something similar to look forward to: “Days of our Lives” stars Shawn Christian (Daniel Jonas) and Freddie Smith (Sonny Kiriakis) have teamed up with Jack Briggs and Nate Hartley to create “Addicts Anonymous,” a possible web-bound comedy that brings the Peacock Network’s Dunder Mifflin-based show to mind — with a slight “The Breakfast Club” twist!
The show, which will also star comedy veterans Matt Walsh (“Veep,” “Ted,” “The Hangover,” “Old School”) and Jerry Lambert (“Shameless,” Family Guy,” “Bad Teacher”), along with former “DAYS” beauty, Molly Burnett (ex-Melanie Kiriakis), is about a group of college students — all battling different addictions — working through their problems in one room.
Former “General Hospital” star Jonathan Jackson (ex-Lucky Spencer) may be busy with his current gig on ABC’s “Nashville,” but lucky for fans, he managed to find the time to hit the road with his band, Enation, and he may be coming to a town near you!
Beginning Friday, June 7, in Nashville, Tennessee, the band is kicking off a multi-stop tour, and a limited number of meet and greet passes are available! For more information on the tour — including locations, dates and prices — check out Jackson’s official website.
After the news that “The Young and the Restless’” Jeanne Cooper (Katherine Chancellor) passed away earlier this month, the long running sudser announced plans to air a tribute episode to honor the soap veteran’s 40 years on the show. Cast members, friends and family gathered on the set last week to film the special tribute (which is scheduled to air on Tuesday, May 28), and an official teaser trailer has been released!
The former Hollywood Hills home of Maurice Benard (Sonny Corinthos, “General Hospital”), which was once a pad possibly filled with soap scripts and dramatic scene rehearsals, is now being “pumped up” a little bit with a new resident: Foster the People frontman Mark Foster.
As we previously reported, “The Young and the Restless’” Michelle Stafford (Phyllis Summers) has decided to walk away from the role she began in 1994, news which has now been officially confirmed.
Angelica McDaniel, the Senior Vice President of CBS Daytime, sent out a tweet regarding news of the actress’ impending exit. “[Michelle Stafford] has been a huge part of the ‘Y&R’ family,” she writes. “Respect her decision to move on but will miss her. Wish her the very best always.”
Soap fans certainly know Eddie Cibrian as “Sunset Beach’s” Cole Deschanel, but the hunky star is widely known for a slew of other roles in films and TV shows like “Third Watch,” “Vanished,” “Ugly Betty,” “CSI: Miami,” “The Playboy Club,” and “For Better or Worse.” And now the actor is adding yet another gig onto his resume, this time in a new Hallmark Channel original movie called “Notes From Dad.”
“The Young and the Restless’” Eric Braeden has played Victor Newman for an outstanding 33 years, and one thing he has noticed in those three decades of hard work is that there actually is a magic formula to thank for his success and the success of the long-running sudser: Simply staying real.
Fans who loved seeing Crystal Chappell (Gina Brogno, “Venice;” ex-Carly Manning, “Days of our Lives;” ex-Olivia Spencer, “Guiding Light”) as Jane in Steve Silverman’s Alfred Hitchcock-inspired series, “The Inn,” are in for quite a treat: The two-time Emmy Award winning actress is reprising the role in the second season of the dark drama!
“I’m so proud of this project,” Chappell says of the series, which follows the journey of a woman (Chappell) whose car breaks down off the beaten path and is forced to stay at the town’s local inn. “The role fulfilled my dream of playing a Hitchcock girl kind of character.”
Genoa City is apparently a very popular place to be, as “The Young and the Restless” is adding yet another character to the canvas. This time, the sudser has tapped actress Mishael Morgan to play the new character of Hillary Curtis.
When ABC unveiled its new fall lineup this week, one thing fans couldn’t help but notice was a drastic cut to “Dancing With the Stars,” which will only be airing one night a week — on Mondays — come fall. The network has decided to build the results show into the new two-hour once-a-week format, and ABC Entertainment Group President Paul Lee has spilled the details on why that decision was made, as well as teased some other major changes in store for the popular reality series.
