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.

"The Young and the Restless'" Tracey E. Bregman (Lauren Fenmore) appeared on Hallmark Channel's "Home & Family" earlier this week and revealed some interesting tidbits about how she got her start in Hollywood, including that her first name wasn't originally spelled with an "e" and that she didn't always include her middle initial (which stands for Elizabeth) in her profession, and shares some of her "Days of our Lives" memories. Also part of her appearance, Bregman played the soap star name game with hosts Mark Steines and Cristina Ferrare, and talks about her new Manhattan Malibu clothing line.
After portraying Ryder Callahan for two years on CBS' "The Young and the Restless," actor Wilson Bethel has gone on to star in The CW's now concluded southern drama "Hart of Dixie," as reformed bad boy Wade Kinsella, and he most recently appeared in ABC's summer run of "The Astronaut Wives Club." Now according to Deadline, Bethel is ready to tackle "Blood & Oil" after snagging a recurring role in the upcoming Don Johnson ("Nash Bridges") and Chace Crawford ("Gossip Girl") led drama series about a young working-class couple who move to North Dakota following the biggest oil discovery in American history.
Four individuals connected by blood, friendship, sex, and love are dragged into the classic battle between good versus evil. No that's not the description for an arc on ABC's "General Hospital" or CBS' "The Young and the Restless," but the online drama "Pride: The Series," which features "GH's" Ilene Kristen (Delia Ryan) and "As The World Turns'" actress Lauren B. Martin (ex-Camille Bennett) as special guest stars. Recently, the series became an official selection of Miami Web Fest, a 10-day festival that showcases the hottest new web series around the world. The festival begins Friday, September 25 and culminates on Sunday, October 4 with the Miami Web TV Awards.
